Michel’s Patisserie Franchise Business Opportunity

Celebrate The Good Things


Michel’s Patisserie was founded in 1982 to meet the quality end of the food service market with a range of patisserie products. The concept was developed into a franchise system in 1990 and now represents an icon in the Australian retail food landscape.


It was founded with a simple intention: A central bakery bakes the product and distributes to the retail outlets, which in turn displays and sells to the customer. Michel’s Patisserie can be located in a kiosk or as an in line store model – depending upon the availability of premises and lease negotiations.
The Michel’s Patisserie system was acquired by Retail Food Group Limited in December 2007. Retail Food Group is Australia’s largest multi brand food franchisors with over 1,100 franchised outlets throughout Australia and Internationally. The business is now well-established and resourced to continue growth.



Michel’s Patisserie is one of Australia’s most successful patisserie and franchise groups with over 340 stores throughout Australia as well as outlets in New Zealand. Michel’s Patisserie has progressive plans for new store openings in metropolitan and regional areas throughout Australia and beyond.
