WHO IS BEHIND THOSE FRENCH MACARONS?
After founding and running two successful companies abroad for 15 years, Chantal moved from Paris to San Francisco in 2008. With her, she brought Chantal Guillon Macarons and Teas to the United States.
Immediately, she fell in love with the most European American city. Rich in culture and diversity, San Franciscans also had a hunger for high-end food experiences. Establishing the Chantal Guillon headquarters in the city was a fit made in heaven.
