Whether they’re tourists, shoppers, or culinary connoisseurs--we love our customers! And because we can squeeze one of our cookie franchises into 800-1,000 square feet of commercial real estate, it’s easy to find the ideal location convenient to the community layout. Our cookie franchises don’t require much in the way of special accommodations either, so there tends to be plenty of selection to choose from.
Our mobile franchise kiosks are even more adaptable, as they can be set up within large indoor venues such as shopping malls, food courts, or convention centers. Opening a store costs $250,000 on average, while a kiosk can be up and running within 3-4 months for around $100,000. The investment to start a mobile franchise is so cost effective because there’s no leasing or purchasing of a physical location involved. They can usually be managed with only one employee at the counter as well, making this an excellent start-up option with ample opportunity to expand from there.
Crowds Love Novelty
Meeting the public within these settings means reaching hungry crowds on the lookout for novelty. But it’s not just the everyday foot traffic that finds its way to our elegant, sophisticated shops and kiosks. Our cookie franchise also places orders for people hosting celebrations, anticipating a special occasion, or managing a large event. Such a variety of customers allows for diverse streams of revenue which leads to robust profits for our Franchise Owners.
Why are people so drawn to our product? We’ve found a “sweet spot” within the baking industry that allows us to introduce French delicacies to the American consumer. Our macaron is the pièce de résistance. Introduced during the Renaissance, the recipe was adjusted in 1830 by Parisian Louis-Ernest Ladurée and has become a classic through the centuries.
Each cookie is handmade by our French chef using almond flour, eggs and sugar with a ganache, buttercream or preserve filling. Gluten-free, these desserts are a combination of chewy, crispy, creamy and airy all at once. With twenty-something flavors to choose from, each one is a pleasing surprise with its own unique taste. But this novel French cookie isn’t all we offer!
With such a variety to choose from, it’s no wonder our customers keep coming back - either to try something new, or to indulge in an old favorite.
HOW MUCH CAN I MAKE?
The bakery cafÃ© segment is growing more than twice as fast as all other food segments and we've also seen strong gains in the gluten-free, preservative free and low-calorie consumption segment which are expected to grow 9.3% over the coming 8 years. When you introduce a Le Macaron French Pastries into your market you'll not only own the most innovative specialty retail concept of its kind, you'll also tap into a high growth market with tremendous revenue potential.
