Once upon a time a French girl took a trip across the ocean and found herself in a land of delicious new tastes and treats that enchanted her during her long sojourn abroad. A beautiful culinary love affair had begun…
My American Market was born in Anne-Claire’s heart and mind in the fall of 2008. The adventure started with a ranch dressing craving (never underestimate the power of your cravings!). After settling in the south of France after a few years in the U.S., Anne-Claire soon realized she was missing the products that represented a piece of her American life, of the place she used to call “home.”
Unfortunately, the available means of acquiring these favorites (waiting for an American friend’s visit, having food sent to her from the States, stocking up at specialty stores while in Paris, etc.) soon proved insufficient. Her cravings were just too strong, and she correctly assumed that other American food junkies in France felt the same way.
Since its 2009 birth, My American Market's family has grown to include new team members.
Meet the team!
As a father of two, Arnaud's got a lot on his hands. He handles our food store's supply chain, from purchasing your favorite comfort food in the USA to shipping your parcel to your front door.
As My American Market’s webmaster, Alexia is the one behind all of our website’s improvements. Our Code Queen has been making our (cyber) life easier ever since she arrived in the fall of 2013!
A big fan of Reese’s peanut butter cups, Charles works with Alexia in “Office 42” to form our dynamic duo. Both calm and efficient, he contributes to IT development for our online grocery store!
You don't even know you have a problem, but Fanny's already got an answer for you! Fluent in English, French and Spanish, Fanny learned what customer service means in one of the best schools: Air France Airlines in NYC. Very chic!
Monika is 100% European! Born to Polish parents, her family moved to Italy when she was 2. She later fell in love with France and its language. She is part of our customer service team and can answer all of your questions in Italian, French and English. Now that's impressive!
Born in the USA, Therese is originally from St. Louis, Missouri and brings a touch of America to our customer service team. She understands better than anyone the importance of “comfort food” for American expats. Yummy!
A woman who sees problems only in terms of possible solutions, Anne-Claire came up with the idea of a 1-stop online store that could satisfy not only the American expatriates’ cravings but also the curiosities of Europeans who had never tried all-American classics like “the root-beer float” or “Marshmallow smores".
Our team of L4 Logistics wranglers makes sure your orders are prepared and herded out the door by sunset. These are also the guys and gals that, with shelf after shelf of American goodies taunting them, must resist extreme temptation day in and day out. They are “behind the scenes,” where all the magic happens.
And last, but definitely not least, YOU!
