While Maarten and his team perform their culinary mastery in the back of the shop, his wife Fran, the “Mom” in this truehearted “Mom and Pop” operation, manages the front of the business.
Together they built this business from ground up, as self-starter entrepreneurs since 1999.
The Bedford Hills native Fran isinstrumental in running the family operation. She and her team are the primary customer interface. Their magic is reflected in the beautiful decorations and presentation of the food and desserts, the shop’s efficiency, and the immaculate cleanliness. When walking into La Tulipe, it immediately strikes customers that this is a special place just by looking at the presentation of the beautiful desserts. Fran takes care of every detail of the shopping experience, which reflects their commitment to excellence in every detail, down to the boxes in which the goods are packed in. When the customer leaves the store every aspect of the experience is delightful, designed to put a smile on your face, to bring you happiness and to lift your spirits.
