French luxury bakery and sweets maker Ladurée will open its Canadian location early next year on the 1100 block of Vancouver’s Robson Street. The store will be operated by a local franchisee, according to sources.
Founded in Paris in 1862, Ladurée is best known for its double-decker macarons, selling over 15,000 of them daily. Many Ladurée locations also sell ice cream, sorbets, jams, chocolate and candy, as well as branded accessories. Some Ladurée locations also serve afternoon tea. Ladurée was purchased by French business group Groupe Holder in 1993, expanding Ladurée from a handful of locations to dozens of boutiques in 25 countries.
