More About Le Macaron
Who We Are
The cool story behind our company’s founding and what make us unique.
Rosalie and Audrey have made it their mission to capture the French spirit in each and every one of their sweet delicacies.
They both devoted months working with a French-trained pastry chef. And together they selected the finest quality ingredients to create a true French macaron.
The macaron is considered to be the jewel of French pastries in Europe.
Le macarons will delight … First bite is a surprise. Second bite is the flavor. Third bite is the pleasure™… all adding up to create a mouthful of heaven!
Founders, Rosalie Guillem and her daughter, Audrey Guillem-Saba, had a dream to share delectable French macarons with the world and to reunite their family though their love of French pastries. Rosalie, who’s family originally hailed from France, was living in Florida, while her daughter Audrey was still living in France. Upon moving to the United States, the family was surprised to find that the American take on the “macaron” was often simply sugar spun into a cookie shape or confused with the familiar coconut cookie “macaroon”. They knew that with a little consumer education and by treating the American palate to true French macarons, they could bring a unique and authentic taste of France to the marketplace. And so the Le Macaron sensation had begun.
In 2009, Rosalie and Audrey began sharing their delectable texture sensational macarons with the American consumer market and opened their first Le Macaron French Pastries®. Because of the frequent requests from customers to open a Le Macaron French Pastries® pastry shop in their community the company began franchising in 2012.
Our niche concept is unique, with very limited competition. Today’s consumers are eager to engage with their food in new, creative ways. They want flavor and texture, quality, and presentation; they are more health conscience. Each of our signature pastries is handcrafted by our team of French chefs at our Le Macaron French Pastries® commissary.
Our true French macaron is made with the finest gluten-free ingredients, no preservatives and is about 80 calories each. Beyond the signature macarons, our menu includes gourmet chocolates, French gelato, classic French pastries, European style beverages and homemade candies. Some locations may also serve a variety of wine and sparkling wine.
Our French pâtisseries are a modern European design with no on-site baking providing refined operations so minimal staffing is required. Our franchisees leverage streamlined locations which provides time to focus on excellence in customer service and opportunities for additional avenues of revenue.
The macaron, perfected in France, has a long history dating back centuries in Europe. Macarons look like small, round shells and are created from ground almonds and soft meringue. These sweet, tiny delicacies fit right into the palm of your hand.
They are lightly crisp on the outside and smooth and creamy in the center, filled with ganache (chocolate), rich cream, homemade fruit jams or other quality ingredients. Our macarons are made with natural ingredients and no preservatives.
