Once Upon a Time...
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 following 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 our DreamTeam" !
The Head Honcho of My American Market
You can thank her for the creation of your favorite All-American grocery store! My American Market was born from her desire to 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".
Anne-Claire's Secret Weapon
She showed up with a pink water bottle and a mischievous grin, ready to help Anne-Claire get. stuff. done. Anne-Claire has 10,000 ideas a minute, and Nadège makes them a reality. They're a real power couple! The secret potion that keeps her at the top of her game? Peanut butter ♥
Procurement and Logistics Team, aka the Keylogs
Never fear, the Keylogs are here! This super group is to thank for bringing such a wide range of unique and delicious products to Europe. They also make sure your orders reach you at supersonic speed! 🚀
Our Keylogs manager and aspiring Michael Jordan wears many hats. Between customs, purchasing, and transportation (oh my!), Alex is never bored. He's known for his permanent smile and upbeat attitude…and for holding a world record in nail hammering 🔨 You could say he nailed it!
Tiphaine ensures that our products arrive and arrive on time. She is a super star organizer and meticulous planner—the perfect person to keep track of 1,300 items. Our fav West Coast gal (of France, that is!) loves Japanese snacks as much as she loves her region's buttery pastries. And to work off both, she prefers running and hiking (though never without her raincoat) ☂️
Claire is in charge of importing our US products, which she knows very well! This French-Canadian was raised on the flavors of North America. Proust had his madeleine, Claire has Mountain Dew. One sip, and she's instantly transported back to her childhood summers on the Great Lakes.
Our team jock is always on the ball. Burpees and Excel spreadsheets are no match for him! 💪🏻 He gets the rugby ball down the field as expertly as he gets our products into your basket. And yet this adept athlete is no match for our Flamin' Hot Cheetos. "I'm not crying, there's just something in my eye!" 🥵
Audrey's million-dollar ideas and her enthusiasm make her the ideal person to oversee Crew 42 and the M&M's. Her management style is a breath of fresh air…but hurry, hurry, there's no time to waste!
IT Team, aka Crew 42
In "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy," the answer to life, the universe, and everything is 42. Our IT guys are know-it-alls (in the best way possible!), so it's only natural that we've dubbed them Crew 42 😉
Jérémie takes part in developping our on-line shop. He's always there to help out when "it doesn't work". If you want to make Jérémie smile, just give him a box of Wonka Nerds and watch him light up!
Geek alert: Steve has moved into Office 42! He's an out-of-this-world developer, always prepared to swoop in and save the day whenever Darth Vader's army of bugs tries to invade our computers. When he's not munching on jalapeño Cheetos or riding his bike, he's taking down bugs with his sick coding skills!
Thomas first joined our B42 team during his studies (which he successfully completed)! Once a Marseille native, he is the quiet force in charge of the computer development behind the scenes—and a true coding wizard! Thomas loves Reese's peanut butter as much as video games!
A native Southerner, Julien needed to travel throughout France before realizing there truly is no place like home. Now he's back in Toulouse and working on the front! As front-end developer, Julien is responsible for our sleek and user-friendly website. He's fluent in the language of Cascading Style Sheets…er, CSS, that is. Translation: You can click on "Buy me" and raid our shelves thanks to him.
Marketing Team, aka the M&M's
How do we make our products even MORE irresistible? Faith, trust, a bit of pixie dust…and our Marketing magicians! Our team has its finger on the pulse of the latest US trends. Don't miss out! Follow My American Market on social media and subscribe to our newsletter 📣
Our multilingual Swiss wordsmith (try saying that five times fast!) We rely on Grazia's neutrality to solve the most vital debates of our time: Which comes first, the cereal or the milk? She is also in charge of SEO and web traffic (a convenient front for her underground Jelly Belly trafficking) 🍬
Our graphic designer, par excellence. But wait, there's more! Marion is also a master of affiliate marketing, newsletters, and branding. We can always count on her infectious laugh to brighten our day. #FunFact: She has a green thumb...most of the time!
Customer Support Team, aka the Jedis
Our wonderful lightsaber-wielding Jedis are here to listen, make sure everything runs smoothly, and above all find solutions to any problem that may arise. With them on your side, everything's gonna be alright 🥰
As our fearless Jedi commander, Laura trains her young Padawans to be warriors…of kindness! She is beloved across the galaxy for her million-watt smile and legendary patience. Our bomba latina knows that customer satisfaction is the true "Force" behind My American Market.
He brings a special American touch to the Jedi (and he doesn't mind being the only guy)! Dorian lived in the US for quite a few years before coming to join our team. He loves pop culture, Harry Potter, and superheroes, and knows the products related to them inside and out.
Fast and efficient, this spirited Italian draws her lightsaber quicker than you can say "Help me, Hoda Kenobi!" She looks forward to making your experience with us as enjoyable as our Twinkies. The fashonista's one weakness? Pringles!
B2B Sales Team, aka the Beez
My American Market is proud to be the #1 supplier of American products to European retailers! Are you looking for a wholesaler of American goods? Our brilliant and dedicated B2B team is here for you from start to finish. No French? No problem. These talented team members can assist you in several different languages.
Marine is the Beez knees! She masterfully manages her team for maximum client satisfaction. Her colleagues appreciate her quick wit and passion. She loves a joke but is serious about her work. Whenever a new challenge arises, Marine is first to step up to the plate 🙋🏼
Thanks to her international gift of gab and her appetite for challenge, Audrey is truly in her zone with our B2B clients. She walks them through the steps of their business development and manages every project with an iron fist in a velvet glove.
Mamma mia! You've sure found the right person to give advice for your business. Giuseppina, and her 15 years of work in e-commerce, is here to take care of you like a real Italian Mamma. She's the real deal! You can chat with her in Italian, French or English.
Carolina helps Giuseppina and Audrey manage client accounts. Our B2B clients love her for her warm and gentle nature—call it joie de vivre! Carolina's superpower is super kindness: anyone who crosses her path walks away with a smile. Que guapa!
Support Team, aka the Big Spenders
As their name might suggest, our Support Team is tasked with the huge responsibility of keeping us running as smoothly and efficiently as possible. Questions about regulations, exchange rates, or TVA (or our next fun team activity)? The Big Spenders are here to help!
It's Hélène who controls the purse strings in this operation. Our Director of Administration and Finance is a hard-working, multi-tasking Jill of all trades! But most importantly, she's the #1 Reese's Pieces fan.
Laura joined the Big Spenders as Hélène's second-in-command to pursue one of her greatest passions: going on spending sprees with the company credit card to stock the shelves of your favorite American grocery store! No matter the currency, no matter the taxes, she conquers invoices in the blink of an eye. She's our very own Calamity Jane!
Lucie handles all things administration, accounting, and human resources…no big deal! She is always on hand to look after our team and anticipate our every need. What would we do without her?
The Warehouse crew
As soon as your order is confirmed, the warehouse crew rushes to prepare with care and send your products out as fast as possible! They're working on the sidelines and are daily faced with the temptation of yummy American food all around them! Somehow they resist! They're basically the best.
