In 1856, Jean JEGHER (1799-1867), a Master Pâtissier and cake maker, originally from the Grissons region of Switzerland, set up shop just outside the gates of Bordeaux's Jardin Public, at 36 cours de Verdun (cours du Jardin Public at the time). His nephew, Jean Antoine JEGHER (1832-1889) joined him soon after in opening a second establishment at 20, allées de Tourny.
Their expertise gained them an instant recognition and a renown that continues to this day.
