Overview

Rosalie Guillem and her daughter Audrey Guillem-Saba had a dream – to share authentic, delectable French macarons with the world. Having moved to the United States from France, they were surprised to find that the American’s take on the macaron was often simply sugar spun into a cookie shape… or that the macaron was frequently confused with the coconut macaroon. As such, Rosalie and Audrey made it their mission to capture the spirit of France in every one of their delicacies. They spent months working with a French-trained pastry chef and, together, they selected only the finest quality ingredients in which to create a true French macaron; like mana of the gods, a true mouthful of heaven. To enjoy our macaron, close your eyes and take a bite …. “The First bite is a surprise. The Second bite is a flavor. The Third bite is a pleasure.”™

In 2009, Rosalie and Audrey opened their first Le Macaron French Pastries® location in Sarasota, Florida – a boutique-style French café that encourages patrons to sit back and indulge in the finest French pastries and macarons. Three years later, Le Macaron French Pastries® Franchise was founded with a deep-seated passion to bring an exceptional business opportunity to like-minded entrepreneurs who want to start a fun and fulfilling business. Today, we are recognized nationally throughout the franchise industry with accolades in Top Industry Publications.
