Both bakery franchises offer novelty. With Le Macaron, you get the delicate, bite-sized macarons with a light, crispy shell and chewy, cream-filled center. With Peace, Love and Little Donuts Franchise, you get smaller-than-usual donuts with a surprising assortment of toppings.
With both franchises, their signature items come in a wide variety of flavors. At Le Macaron, you might choose a Scicillian Pistachio, Basil White Chocolate, or Columbian Coffee flavored macaron. While at Peace, Love and Little Donuts Franchise you might opt for the Blueberry Pancake, Fruity Pebbles or Maple Bacon donut.
Both dessert franchises definitely cater to the sweet tooth in all of us with irresistible menu options. But that’s about as far as the similarities go when comparing a Le Macaron franchise with a Peace, Love and Little Donuts franchise.
So, which bakery franchise is right for you?
Which One is More Successful?
Even though both franchises started up at about the same time, since 2009 Le Macaron has opened 60 locations, while the Peace, Love and Little Donuts Franchise only has 37 stores open. Why is that?
Well, while the donut is as all-American as the cookie, consumers are more health conscious now than they were before. Not only that, but more Americans have food sensitivities and are looking for alternatives to gluten-packed desserts. That may be the reason why the Le Macaron Franchise has been able to scale up more rapidly.
Do you really want to franchise with a company that can’t keep up with current dietary trends? Le Macaron offers gluten-free desserts that are low-calorie and are made with only the highest quality ingredients, making them a safer bet.
Which One has Greater Product Diversity?
Le Macaron French Pastries easily outshines Peace, Love and Little Donuts Franchise when it comes to having a diversified menu. The latter only offers an impressive array of donuts, and nothing else. In addition to delectable macarons, Le Macaron also sells éclairs, madeleines, pains au chocolat, French gelatos, cakes, candies, designer chocolates, waffles and tempting beverages. With so much to choose from, Le Macaron is able to draw in a wider variety of customers to please any appetite.

Which One has a Better Business Model?
One of the drawbacks to owning a Peace, Love and Little Donuts franchise is that you only have the option of opening a store. But what if you’d rather start small and see how things go before expanding? With Le Macaron, you can do just that by opening a low-cost mobile kiosk with as little as $90,350. Opening a shop with Peace, Love and Little Donuts Franchise takes at least $121,200 to get off the ground.
