Last year, Paris Baguette made meaningful growth, opening 42 new cafés and awarding another 100, and they continued this momentum into 2024. They’ve already signed franchise agreements for another 43 cafés, opened nine new locations and secured prime real estate for 70 cafés in development.

This diligent work is powering both their rapid footprint growth and continued sales volume increases, capturing the attention of prospective owners and industry leaders alike.

Earlier this year, Paris Baguette was ranked No. 61 — climbing nearly 60 spots from their 2023 rank — on Entrepreneur’s 2024 Franchise 500, one of the most comprehensive and competitive in the industry.
