Le Macaron: A Niche Cookie Franchise

Learn More

These days, consumers are on the lookout for something new. Something exotic. Something savory and delicious. While the classic chocolate chip cookie is popular, it’s also so blasé -- a French word that means common to the point of being ordinary. With our cookie franchise, we like to “wow!” our customers with delicacies that are anything but ordinary. Our menu items are both très chique and très original.

With limited direct competition, our bakery franchise has been able to introduce our niche products to the American public with phenomenal success. In the early 2000’s, the founding mother-daughter team (Rosalie and Audrey Guillam) noticed how hard it was to find an authentic macaron here in the states. Their desire to introduce these sensational treats to the marketplace led to the opening of the first Le Macaron French Pastries shop in 2009. By 2012, they were franchising and have continued pleasing even more consumers with their signature menu items since then. Now Americans can enjoy a little taste of France without having to buy a plane ticket!

Le Macaron is proud to be a top cookie and bakery franchise near you.

Meet The Main Attraction

Our native French chef, Didier Saba, carefully oversees the baking of each macaron to ensure every batch is up to standard. Baked with all-natural, premium ingredients and no preservatives, each crisp round shell is made of ground almonds and a light meringue. Flaky on the outside and filled with a creamy center, these tempting cookies are revolutionizing the retail bakery sector with a luxurious, yet affordable offering that’s hard to beat!

With a professional chef directing the production of all Le Macaron products, we are able to ensure that the quality of each cookie is outstanding. That consistency has led to our success over the years and simplifies running a shop for our Franchise Owners, too. Without having to play chef or manage a kitchen, running a Le Macaron bakery franchise is surprisingly easy. Because fresh products are delivered to your doors daily, all that’s left to do is set the treats out on display and sell them to eager customers. A store can be started for as little as $90,350 because the square footage requirements are so minimal.
