Paris Baguette, a premier bakery cafe franchise with more than 3,700 worldwide locations, is targeting the United States for growth after incredible international success in South Korea, China, Singapore, Vietnam and France.
The French-inspired bakery and café concept, whose variety of proprietary products offer guests a unique and sophisticated taste, is projected to add an additional 350 locations to its current 46 U.S. stores by 2020.
Paris Baguette was born out of a concept which first began in Korea in 1945. With over 70 years of experience in the baking industry internationally, Paris Baguette first debuted in the United States in 2005 and began franchising in August 2015. Paris Baguette recently announced aggressive expansion plans in the United States in 18 target markets with an immediate development focus on California, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
Led under the direction of chief development officer Larry Sidoti, who helped grow several iconic brands over the past two decades, Paris Baguette is introducing its internationally recognized brand to the mainstream American market through strategic franchise partnerships with dedicated, passionate individuals.
