TORONTO — Paris Baguette has opened in Toronto, marking the brand’s first bakery café in Canada. Paris Baguette’s North-American expansion will see at least seven stores open across Canada this year, with an additional 64 in the U.S., through a strategic approach of corporate-owned and franchise locations.

The Paris Baguette bakery café highlights signature cakes, specialty brewed coffees by Lavazza and exquisite baked breads and pastries. Initial growth in Canada will be concentrated in Ontario, focusing on the Greater Toronto Area; in Alberta, with locations in Edmonton and Calgary; and in Vancouver.

The Toronto store is 2,300 sq. ft. and has seating for up to 20 guests. Large self-serve displays feature an extensive menu and an open kitchen provides a window into Paris Baguette’s expert bakers at work. A large centre island showcases signature treats, such as the Strawberry Soft Cream Cake and mochi doughnuts. The café has a modern design with French architectural features.

“The expansion of our bakery cafés into Canada marks an exciting period of growth for Paris Baguette,” says Darren Tipton, CEO, Paris Baguette North America. “We can’t wait to celebrate moments of joy with our guests as we establish our neighborhood bakery cafés in Toronto and bring our vision to life throughout Canada.”

Paris Baguette has been recognized as one of the top 500 franchises by Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500. Earlier this year, Paris Baguette partnered with Italian coffee company Lavazza to bring its coffee beverages to all cafés.
