Chelsea joined the family business in 2015 after graduation from Grand Valley State University and a year abroad teaching English in a small village in France. Like Kelly, Chelsea shares a passion for all things French. And Dutch. You’ll need to ask her about that! Chelsea manages the Grand Rapids location of Le Bon Macaron and the social media for all locations.
Chelsea lives in Grand Rapids with her husband Joris and their children, Eliza and Hendrik.
Kelly has been in the bakery business with her parents since 2008. Le Bon Macaron is an extension of Kelly’s love for France; its culture and cuisine. She studied French and Art while at Albion College and lived abroad for a year during that time. Her time in France further fueled her desire to combine her passions of food, photography and travel and Le Bon Macaron is the result.
Kelly lives in Grand Rapids with her husband Drew and their daughters, Charlotte and Samantha.
Johnny has been in the family business since graduating from Albion College. Like the rest of the family Johnny finds himself most comfortable in the kitchen and we were very happy he joined us at Le Bon Macaron. When his niece Charlotte asks him what his job is he says “I give the macarons their flavor!” He’s responsible for creating new flavor combinations and loves the challenge. Johnny is responsible for many other important jobs but giving the macarons their flavor is by far the most fun.
Johnny lives in Grand Rapids with his wife Lindsay and their dogs Teagan and Junior and cat Salem.
John & Wendy
John and Wendy are true entrepreneurs with Le Bon Macaron being their third business in the mid-Michigan area.
