MOONACHIE, NJ — Paris Baguette, a bakery cafe concept with over 4,000 locations worldwide and nearly 150 in the US, continued toward its expansion goals with its most recent franchise signing in Stamford, CT.
“We are thrilled to announce additional expansion to Connecticut. There’s a tremendous amount of opportunity in the bakery cafe space,” said Mark Mele, chief development officer of Paris Baguette. “No other bakery cafe franchisors are doing what Paris Baguette is on the same scale. Our ability to stay true to our cafe roots while embracing aggressive expansion has garnered attention, and that only serves to drive us forward.”
The Stamford location will be the first Paris Baguette bakery cafe in the state.
“When looking for the right franchise opportunity, Paris Baguette was the ideal fit because of its amazing product line, store design and proven response from communities throughout the United States,” said Tom Paek, who, along with Ji Hoon Kim, entered the franchise agreement.
Paris Baguette aims to sign 160 franchise agreements and open 64 new locations in 2023. The company has a goal to operate 1,000 locations in the US by 2030.
“Even throughout the pandemic and its aftershocks, we did not shy away from opening additional units and exploring new markets,” said TJ Rogers, franchise sales manager of Paris Baguette. “With great year-over-year revenue increases, and a persistent interest in the brand from franchisees and consumers alike, we expect nothing but a strong continued growth trajectory for the brand.”
