La Madeleine will be offering a range of prototypes such as traditional, petite, self-contained kiosks or inline formats to its franchise candidates.

Each traditional La Madeleine café covers between 3,500ft² and 4,500ft² and can accommodate 25 to 30 part-time and full-time employees.

All the franchise candidates will be offered support from the headquarters team for real estate, construction, marketing, operations, purchasing and technology.

La Madeleine franchise development senior director Mark Ramage stated: “Expanding into these states allows La Madeleine to ignite a new passion in entrepreneurs seeking growth opportunities with a progressive and relevant brand.

“As we continue to modernise our franchise concept for the next generation and new guests to come, our goal is to attract multi-unit franchisees with restaurant experience who will embrace our culture and strive to deliver an exceptional dining experience.”

Established in 1983, La Madeleine currently operates more than 90 locations across the US as well as in international markets.
