Our founder was getting burnt out from her 9-5 job. One day, she came home from work and wanted to bake her stress away. She had family in France that always sent over macarons as a gift. Frustrated that it was so hard to find good macarons in America, she decided to try her hand at making them better.
Macarooz is born
After many failed attempts, she finally made a successful batch. She had her husband try them and he ended up eating the whole batch! With his business background, he got the bright idea to create a small business that would focus on selling the best macarons available anywhere in the world. They decided to call this great new business Macarooz! To this day they still can't seem to agree on who came up with the name, but we can't imagine a better name for the best macarons in the world!
macarooz are a hit!
For the first few years, the founder operated Macarooz from her home kitchen making orders for family, friends, and friends of friends. Some days were overwhelming for her, such as special occasions and holidays because it was just her in a little kitchen with 1 mixer and 2 hands. But it made all of the hard work worth it seeing so many people enjoying her Macarooz.
macarooz grows up
At this point, it was time for the company to grow up. The founders leased space hourly in a shared commercial kitchen space to allow the company to grow. Since the shared kitchen space was booked up during the day, they had to bake during the off hours. The two worked all through the night every day to make their treats. They went to the store to source ingredients, prepped those ingredients, and manually mixed, piped, baked, boxed, and shipped thousands of cookies themselves for the next several months.
Today, we have a fantastic growing team that produces millions of Macarooz each year in our production facility in Houston, TX. We have been so fortunate as a company to have so many great people working with us that are just as passionate about growing the company and continuing the tradition of making the best macarons found anywhere in the world.
