Rising Stars Fund

French-themed café and bakery

Founded in 2014 by Elisa Marshall and Benjamin Sormonte, Maman has expanded from a single café and bakery unit in Soho into a recognized 11-unit multi-format brand in New York City and Toronto.

Through its French and American heritage, Maman offers a unique restaurant experience built around locally-sourced food, high quality hot beverages and a friendly and attentive service in a distinctively authentic southern French setting. The product offering includes fresh salads and sandwiches with a wide selection of pastries, and specialty beverage options. While primarily an off-premise concept, Maman also boasts a strong events, catering and partnership program.

In December 2020, TriSpan announced that it had made a significant investment in Maman through its Rising Stars Fund.

“We are very excited to begin this journey with TriSpan and work together to implement a collaborative growth strategy. TriSpan brings financial strength and expertise that will help guide our strategic direction and growth.”
