If you’re an experienced restaurateur, la Madeleine is an exciting opportunity with massive potential. Our commitment to meeting ever-changing customer needs has helped us develop an award-winning menu. And behind the scenes, we work even harder to provide support to our franchisees.

La Madeleine offers a variety of prototypes to cater to various trade areas. These options include Traditional, Petite, Self-Contained Kiosk or Inline formats, offering flexible opportunities including designs suitable for nontraditional venues. The Traditional cafe typically spans 3,500 to 4,500 square feet and employs 25-30 part-time and full-time employees. Alternatively, there are smaller build-outs with half the size and staffing needs available based on the chosen real estate location. Our franchisees can expect comprehensive support from our headquarters team in areas such as real estate, construction, marketing, operations, purchasing and technology.
