Are your famous cakes and cookies in constant demand amongst friends and family? Starting a home baking business is a great way to earn extra income, but it gets complicated once your customer base expands beyond close acquaintances. In fact, many states have laws prohibiting or limiting the sale of home baked goods.

Fortunately, with a >dessert franchise, you can experience the benefits of business ownership and do what you love at minimal risk! Le Macaron, a well established French dessert franchise offers a macaron kiosk model to entrepreneurs that are looking for a simple, low impact business opportunity.

Le Macaron is truly a special Franchise. Beside the products are amazing, everyone from the office to other franchisees are like family. We fell in love with the macarons the minute we had our first bite. Sarasota had amazing weather when we arrived at Sarasota location. Rosalie spoke of the history of the franchise and how they came to America. Frank and I felt we fit right in and saw how well we would do introducing Le Macaron to New York City.

The experience is unique because coming from completely different profession (real estate agent for me and notary for my wife) we started to sell behind a counter, to make the direct sale, to manage the stock of macarons and other Ice creams ... The products of the franchise are excellent so it is a pleasure every day to see our customers feasting and congratulating us.

The macaron kiosk is a bite sized model of our French cafe and is perfect for malls and other large venues. As a scaled down version of our larger business model, macaron kiosks operate simply and inexpensively. This is the perfect opportunity for entrepreneurs that are looking for a business option that doesn't require too much effort.
