The proposed French patisserie locations will be opened in Tucson, Gaithersburg, New York, Columbus, Tarpon Springs, Pembroke Pines, Long Beach, Sacramento and New Port Beach.

Le Macaron also revealed that a third Le Macaron café is anticipated to open in Nashville, Tennessee.

The cafe will be located at 260 E Congress Street in downtown Tucson and aims to provide the community with authentic French macarons and pastries.

Gary Haggart said: “Not many cafes or bakeries can say their macarons are freshly prepared daily by French chefs.
