“At our core, Paris Baguette is a bakery that is French inspired and innovates through global influences,” Gregg Koffler, vice president of franchise sales and development, said in a release.

“Our rich history of more than 70 years in the baking business coupled with our global identity are sure to resonate with the diverse population of Toronto. Fast casual restaurants continue to outpace industry growth and we see a great deal of opportunity for business owners in this urban market.”

Because of versatile shop footprints, Koffler said, the bakery’s concept succeeds in a variety environments, ranging from urban centres to suburban shopping areas.

“Though the restaurant industry is facing unique challenges at this time, we’re seeing positive steps being taken to support our industry and business owners. Based on this outlook, we are bullish about the long-term prospects of owning a Paris Baguette franchise and are eager to meet with the best-in-class operators in this city.”

As warm weather lands on the city and Torontonians are called to their favourite eateries for takeout to bring (safely and distanced) to the park, it looks like a new buttery, flakey, and délicieux option may be on the horizon.
