While prior experience in the foodservice and/or retail industries would be extremely beneficial, it is not a requirement. Our Le Macaron French Pastries® support team offers a variety of resources to benefit both seasoned and emerging owner-operators. In addition to providing ongoing support and training, we handle all baking and preparation in our Le Macaron Confectionary kitchens. By delivering all pastries fresh to each location, we effectively eliminate on-site production - making the operational aspect of running a French bakery franchise that much easier!
The traditional pastry shop franchise offers all menu items for dining in or takeout and occupies 800 to 1,000 commercial square feet of space. A permanent kiosk franchise is typically located in a mall and ranges from 120 to 150 commercial square feet of space. Our mobile kiosk franchise includes the right to operate a kiosk that can be moved from location to location, if necessary or desired, or our cart-style kiosk, and ranges from only 30 to 50 square feet of space. Cafés and kiosks can easily adapt to a variety of high foot traffic shopping, dining and tourist destinations.
Though delays in construction, permitting or similar factors might occur, we anticipate that your French bakery pastry shop will open for business four to six months after the Franchise Agreement is signed.
