Owners Yann Fougere and David Boetti—native Frenchmen with extensive backgrounds in pastries and customer service—have been friends since attending university in the South of France. Yann moved to Victoria to complete his Bachelor’s Degree in Business at the University of Victoria. David moved to Victoria to improve his English after graduating in France with a marketing degree. While working in and managing numerous cafes and bakeries, they dreamt up the idea of bringing a bit of France to the Canadian West Coast, while continuing to provide impeccable customer service. After many years arguing over France’s best dessert, the two finally agreed on the Macaron and its infinite flavour possibilities, and Bon Macaron Patisserie was born!
