Paris Baguette is set to debut a new lineup of bakery-cafés in the North. The chain has announced that Canada will get its very own Paris Baguette stores starting with a flagship location opening in the heart of downtown Toronto in June 2022.

“It’s taken far too long for this beloved brand to enter Canada,” says Jack Moran, chief executive officer of Paris Baguette Canada. “With a flagship location in Toronto as a starting position, we believe Canadians will quickly realize why the rest of the world is so passionate about Paris Baguette.”

With plans to open 100 stores in the next nine years, Canadian franchisees are excited about the prospect of bringing the brand to their cities. Paris Baguette has become a popular brand for franchising around the world due to its focused menu, small store footprint and leading brand status.

“There’s simply no other competitor in Canada offering what Paris Baguette does. We stand alone in this category,” says Moran. “We’re specialists in pastry, whether you want warm croissants and coffee on your way to work, or sandwiches served on housemade bread served in a casually sophisticated ambiance for lunch. Add to that our show-stopping layer cakes and it all adds up to an experience that customers won’t find anywhere else.”
