Lenôtre made bold moves during his lifetime. Among his list of firsts: the first chain of upscale bakeries in Paris, a bakery-café bistro in the first French shopping mall, the first central kitchen in the country outside of Paris, the first professional French re-training chef school in Plaisir (near Paris) since 1971, the first line of frozen desserts distributed all over France, and the first International bakery franchises (now in a dozen countries including Germany, Japan and Kuwait).
Mr. Lenôtre “dusted, lightened and modernized the heavy pastries of the 1950s. He made dessert lighter, more pleasureful, more desirable, and that’s fundamental in the world of pâtisserie.

In 1998, Lenôtre became the caterer at Stade de France stadium in Paris and cater for the Football World Cup in 1998, Sydney Olympic Games French team in 2000, and for the 2007 Rugby World Cup.
