High Quality Confections

Le Macaron appeals to consumers new found taste for beautifully crafted high quality desserts while allowing new business owners to get started in a market previously reserved for only the most skilled pâtissière. With Le Macaron there is no need to employ a pastry chef at each of your locations. All of Le Macarons confections are crafted by our Master French Chef, Didier Saba and his team in Sarasota Florida. Desserts are flash frozen, a normal step in the macaron baking process, and sent out to each Le Macaron location. No on-site baking lowers the time and cost of building out your new location. The benefits continue into operation as no on-site baking saves time and money that would be spent producing the product.
