Paris Baguette has announced its strengthened presence on the West Coast with plans to open two new locations in Portland, Oregon, the first in the state.

The global brand currently operates more than 82 corporate and franchise bakery-cafés throughout the United States, and over 4,000 internationally. In targeting Portland, Paris Baguette continues its growth plans as a major franchise concept in the US.

“We are looking forward to leveraging our West Coast presence with our expansion into Oregon,” says Gregg Koffler, vice president of franchise sales and development. “We know Portland will be a great opportunity for Paris Baguette based on the customer support we already have throughout the rest of the region. We are confident our vibrant atmosphere will resonate well with the Portland community, along with our wide variety of menu options, such as our chef-driven sandwiches and salads and our assortment of delicious pastries and cakes.”

“Being from Korea, my partners and I absolutely love the products and offerings from Paris Baguette and we are looking forward to offering the diverse menu variety to the Portland community,” says Portland franchisee Jay Chun.
