Born in Normandy, Gontran Cherrier grew up in a family full of boulangers in the small city of Luc-sur-Mer. As a fourth generation baker, it wasn’t long before Gontran earned his first stripes in his parents’ Parisian boulangerie.

In 2010 Gontran opened his first boulangerie in Montmartre, Paris, followed by a second in the 17th arrondissement and a third in Germain-En-Laye in 2013.
