That's me Laura, I'm the founder and CEO of Le Petit Croissant, a company that I launched in January 2017 in Hong Kong and in May 2019 in Singapore!
I've always loved good food and I've always enjoyed baking. That's probably because I've always seen my parents cooking at home in France.
I started my work life in the food delivery industry in Hong Kong. I quickly became passionate about that sector which has been booming in the recent years.
Back then, I was the kind of person who had dozen business ideas per day and I was dreaming about becoming an entrepreneur. One day, the idea of delivering delicious French pastries to offices in Hong Kong came to my mind and I decided to do it.
That's how I became an entrepreneur at the age of 24.
What an adventure it has been since...
Yes it's me again on that picture making bread in our old kitchen :)
Let me tell you how it all started.
In each country where I lived I've always been trying out all the bakeries in town to find the best one. In Angers, France, where I did my business studies, it was a real pleasure to try out all the bakeries! There were so many and each of them were amazing. In Shanghai, where I studied for 6 months, it was much harder because there were not so many options. In Hong Kong, where I was settled in, the taste of pastries wasn't great. I was disappointed and I believed I wasn't the only one...
I knew that food delivery was booming and I loved that sector in which I was working already. I saw the gap in the market and I seized the opportunity.
I opened Le Petit Croissant in January 2017 in Hong Kong. The earliest breakfast delivery service in town serving the best French pastries specialized in corporate deliveries!
Launching my company was probably the best thing I ever did! Becoming an entrepreneur was my dream and I will never regret taking the risk to start the adventure.
It has now been over 3 years that Le Petit Croissant delivers breakfast to the most recognized corporations in Hong Kong.
In 3 years, our production increased, our team grew and I opened in a second country which is Singapore in May 2019.
I'm so proud of where we are now! My team is putting effort in delivering a service of great quality to every single client.
Hong Kong has been a blueprint market now it's time for us to grow in Singapore!
Where next? I don't know yet!
