Are you really Ready?

If you are ready to embark on your bakery franchise journey, you are probably read to get your business open and running as soon as possible. At Le Macaron, we understand this impatience, so we have streamlined our bakery franchise opening process. Most new Franchise Owners can have their location open in four to six months from the time they sign the franchise agreement. While delays in construction or similar factors may delay the timeline, most openings go smoothly. Once your Le Macaron bakery franchise is open, you can embark on your journey to sweet success. While running a cookie shop on your own may be difficult, our franchise system makes the path to success much clearer. Our Franchise Owners have also earned us a reputation as one of the most sophisticated cookie franchises and customers are always happy to enjoy our baked goods when the doors of a new location opens.

With award winning recipes, quality customer service, and countless 5 star reviews, our Franchise Owners have earned us positive public reception. When it comes to franchising, the brand is only as strong as each individual location and Le Macaron has become a formidable cookie franchise supported by a foundation of hard working entrepreneurs. As more business savvy individuals apply to join our ever growing team, we would like to thank those who have helped us get to where we are today.

The Process to Opening a Bakery Franchise

While Grand Opening Day is the end point of our franchise opening process, there are quite a few steps that new Le Macaron Franchise Owners must complete before getting there. If you have chosen to invest in Le Macaron, the first step is to reach out to our franchise office. We will send you a confidential questionnaire that will help us get to know you a little better. If we think you’re a good fit for the Le Macaron team, you can expect the following steps:

  • Brand Overview - Our corporate team will send you further details about the Le Macaron brand and the bakery franchise industry. At this point, we’ve decided you’ll make a good fit to our team and we’re sharing more details about us so you can decide if you think you’re a good fit for us!
