The international bakery brand is looking to penetrate America’s neighbor to the North.

Paris Baguette, the international bakery franchise which currently operates over 4,000 locations (with 82 scattered throughout the U.S.), has indicated its plans to expand into Canada with the registering of its Canadian franchise disclosure document.

The brand currently plans to expand to Canada’s primary markets of Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver, as well as other suitably booming provinces and cities.

“We look forward to building our footprint in Canada through franchising,” says Gregg Koffler, VP of franchise sales and development. “Consumers are continuing to choose quick-service restaurants and, as such, we see a great deal of opportunity for business owners looking for a tried and true business model, that offers gourmet menu selections for dine-in, delivery or takeout.

“We offer multi-faceted store footprints and our concept succeeds in a variety of environments, from city centers to suburban shopping complexes. Pairing that with our global identity and real estate team, we are confident that Paris Baguette is positioned to resonate with an array of communities in Canada.”

Despite the pandemic, Paris Baguette has continued North American growth the past few months with deals continuing to be signed across the U.S.

Originally founded in South Korea in 1988, over 3,000 of Paris Baguette’s locations are situated in its home country. In 2015, the brand opened its 200th overseas store; showing that it had the legs to double-down on international expansion.
