French Memories opened the first location in July 1989 in Duxbury, MA. The owners, Philippe and Debra Odier moved to the area with the intentions of opening an authentic French Patisserie.
Philippe’s background and education gave him the knowledge to open and run the business from the front of the house to the kitchen. He grew up in the family business in Paris, his parents, grandparents and brother were all pastry chefs. He came to the USA knowing he would carry on the family tradition.
