The concept for this franchise is based on Les Moulins La Fayette which was the 2019 #1 rated bakery in Quebec, Canada. The test location to validate the franchise model in the US had over $1M in sales in 2019. With the original founder of the Les Moulins La Fayette bakery on our advisory team, we believe this franchise has the expertise to flourish.
La Fayette Franchise, Inc. owns the concept of an artisan bakery that has streamlined the baking process and offers high-quality French flavors all day long. The bakery, Les Moulins La Fayette, is a 20-location bakery in Canada that has been able to grow tremendously with its high-quality bread, viennoiseries, and pastries. By securing the rights to this brand, business model, and experience, we plan to bring this bakery to the United States.
We plan to take what we learned with the test US location and franchise stores on the east coast, and then expand in Florida and Texas. We know that the bakery can perform well in the US. Now we want to grow the network of bakeries, becoming a hotspot for the best french pastries in town. By placing our bakeries in tourist hotbeds, city centers, and transportation hubs, we hope to build brand recognition that surpasses what has even been seen in Canada. Additionally, we want to grow this brand into a truly future-forward company - utilizing systems like the grab-and-go pickup to better suit the modern consumer.
