Jerome prides himself on being able to remember which customer likes which cookie or tart, and generally makes people feel good.

Jerome Audureau grew up in Avignon, France. While running a summer business as part of his studies at Maxine's Hotel and Restaurant School in Paris, he developed an idea for a café dedicated to tarts.
When he moved to the United States, Jerome brought this idea with him, and, along with partner Frank Mentasena, made it into Once Upon a Tart. After more than a decade, Jerome is still responsible for running the café.
