Boulange Patissier Dominique Doucet

Boulange Patissier Dominique Doucet was opened by President Mr. Dominique Doucet, who came to Japan at the request of Honda, which runs the circuit when it hosted its first Formula 1 Grand Prix at Suzuka.
Local customers are constantly visiting the shop on the ground floor of the main shop, which offers about 100 varieties of bread, cakes, baked goods and ready-made meals unique to France.
In recent years, the shop's most popular product has been canelés. In addition to sales in the shop, the shop is also actively involved in online sales and sales at events across the country. In addition, the wholesale canelé business has grown to become a strong pillar of the shop's support, centred on chilled products that have a reputation for being delicious even when rebaked.
However, in May 2021, the canelés factory caught fire and all the machinery were burned down overnight. The company called for support to rebuild its facilities through crowdfunding and was able to resume production.
The company is working to pass on its brand by fusing the best parts of Japan and France, while respecting its hometown of Suzuka, and passing on its long-loved authentic taste and reliable technology.

"Previously, depositing volume variation was an issue, but with this machine there is no variation and the liquid level is exactly at the same height. Also, there is a good maintenance support system for the machine, which gives us peace of mind".
