Pâtisserie Michaud was founded by Mrs. Colette Michaud, a doting and sweet mother that got her start making desserts for the entire neighborhood in a Québec City borough. Her desserts were so popular, she opened up her very own bakery in 1983. Since the very beginning, Pâtisserie Michaud’s goal has been to create desserts that remind us of our childhoods and evoke feelings of happiness, comfort, pleasure and surprise.
Today’s president, Mario Michaud and son of Colette, joined the family business in the early 1990’s and launched the retail side of Pâtisserie Michaud, establishing partnerships with grocery stores and other retailers.
Over the years, the company continuously grew and started offering desserts for restaurants, institutions, hotels and even more grocery stores.
Today, Michaud desserts are sold via 15 major distributors and in thousands of retail outlets throughout Canada. In 2015, the company expanded its facilities for a third time with the construction of a brand-new modern 22 500 sq. ft. factory, thereby increasing its production capacity.
