With a menu as diverse as ours, you’d think the kitchen to prepare it in would be pretty big. And you’d be right! Our head chef relies on a team of 20 people to make 16,000-18,000 macarons a day. Using the highest quality ingredients ensures that each cookie, pastry or confection is as delicious as the last. But it takes considerable space and plenty of state-of-the-art equipment to produce it all.
So how is it that our bakery franchise costs are still so low? It’s possible to open a shop for only $164,180 to $403,560 and that’s pretty incredible considering another dessert franchise could require twice that. Our mobile kiosk alternative is even more affordable - just $84,730 to $124,060 to get one started.
