Le Macaron French Pastries is now open at The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale, recognized as Broward County’s premier shopping destination. The treats kiosk is located on the upper level near Dillard’s.
The Le Macaron French Pastries menu will offer the signature colorful confections, available in 20 flavors, as well gourmet chocolates, creamy French gelato, specialty European style coffees, classic French pastries and homemade candies. Handmade at a proprietary confectionary, the macarons are gluten-free, preservative-free and are around 80 calories each.
Founders, Rosalie Guillem, who was living in Florida and her daughter, Audrey Guillem-Saba, living in France, had a dream to share delectable French macarons with the world and to reunite their family. The family, originally hailing from France, were surprised to find that the American take on the "macaron" was often simply sugar spun into a cookie shape or confused with the familiar coconut cookie "macaroon." They knew that with a little consumer education, and by treating the American palate to true French macarons, they could bring a taste and texture sensation to the marketplace.
In 2009, Rosalie and Audrey began sharing their delectable macarons with the American consumer market and opened their first Le Macaron French Pastries. Because of the frequent requests from customers to open a Le Macaron French Pastries shop in their community the company began franchising in 2012. There are now 50 locations in 16 states with several others opening soon.
Le Macaron French Pastries at The Galleria joins the recently opened Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants and Fort Lauderdale’s first Altar’d State, a women’s fashion, accessories, gifts and home decor boutique that is passionate about looking good and doing good.
