MICHEL’S Patisserie is celebrating its 30th anniversary this month, and the Toronto franchisees, Annie Li and Greg Stevens, are marking their 16th year with the chain.

The pair won’t have far to look for a celebratory cake.

“The franchise has been involved in many celebrations by being engaged to make celebration cakes for businesses, clubs and individuals,” Mr Stevens said.

“We were proud to be selected to prepare the 60th year anniversary cake for the Toronto Lions Club.”

The store has also helped to raise Toronto’s profile by winning national awards and being featured on three episodes of Channel Seven’s The Franchise Show, in 2016 and 2017.

Mr Stevens said his store’s sponsorship of the Craig Johnston Cup, a competition for Hunter school soccer teams, had been another memorable moment.

“Craig was raised in the Toronto area, and is a Liverpool English Premier League legend,” Mr Stevens said.

“He still comes into the business to say hello when he’s in Australia.”
