Bakery and café chain Paris Baguette is eyeing the Nashville market for five locations — part of its plan to add 1,000 U.S. locations by 2030.
A release does not note the specific local locations or any franchisees.
Today, Moonachie, New Jersey-based Paris Baguette offers nearly 100 locations in markets in multiple states. The U.S. city located within the closest proximity to Nashville and with the brand is Atlanta (two in suburban locales). Greater Chicago also is home to four of the cafes.
“The Paris Baguette brand is eager to grow in Tennessee and we believe the Nashville market is filled with potential,” Mark Mele, Paris Baguette chief development officer, said in the release. “It’s been a tough year for the industry, but I think this brand has been ahead of the curve in terms of creating the kinds of spaces that work for franchisees.”
