Michèle Lepareur opened her first bakery with her husband in 2002 in Neuilly-sur-Seine.

Of Italian origin, she had intended to go to nursing school in Paris. Working in a bakery to get to know the locals, she never left.

Since then, she has managed 5 bakeries in the Paris region: Courbevoie, Paris, Levallois and Neuilly-sur-Seine.

Interview with Michèle Lepareur, Boulangerie de Neuilly, Neuilly-sur-Seine : prestigious jams for a great bakery!


Maison Andrésy: Michèle, getting your jams from your local bakery is quite an original choice: why?


Michèle: “I first came across Maison Andrésy’s delicious jams at my former employer, the Maison Mulot bakery. We were already selling them like hotcakes.

The regulars know them well and regularly take some from us with their bread. They’re more popular during the vacations, when the children and grandchildren are around!

These are prestigious jams, and I’m proud to have them in our local bakeries!” 


Maison Andrésy: Michèle, why did you choose Maison Andrésy jams for your bakery?


Michèle: “Out of habit! When my husband and I opened our first bakery, it was a no-brainer!

What’s more, the old packaging with the kraft cap respected tradition and went very well with the decoration of our first bakery!

These 22 years of loyalty are symbolic of a good relationship and good business.
The relationship of trust with Maison Andrés and Salima, our dedicated sales expert, is important!

The quality of Maison Andrésy jams and their consistency over time are what make them so appealing! They’re a perfect match for our bakery: our lemon tart recipe has been the same for 20 years.”
