Paris Baguette Ranked In Franchise Top 400 List at No. 40Paris Baguette, the bakery franchise with more than 4,000 locations across the globe, was ranked No. 40 in this year’s Franchise Times “Top 400” list. This is the most comprehensive franchise ranking list available and includes the 400 largest franchise systems in the United States. The distinguished ranking is based on Paris Baguette‘s global system sales. The bakery/café franchise joins the most reputable brands in the nation on the list, including McDonald’s and Chick-fil-A.

The brand has consistently ranked high on the list for several years. But since 2020, the brand has climbed 14 spots, showcasing its impressive growth.

The Franchise Times uses a combination of companies’ voluntary reports and their most recent Franchise Disclosure Documents to rank the 400 largest franchise systems in the U.S. To qualify for the ranking, companies must be a legal United States franchise, with its headquarters based in the United States, or have at least 10% of its total units located in the country. At least 15% of the company’s total units must be franchised.

With its U.S. debut in 2005, the French-inspired café has grown rapidly with locations across the country. Paris Baguette has nearly 150 units operating in the U.S. and aims to reach the 1,000-unit mark in the United States by 2030.

“This ranking is a testament to the hard work of our franchise development team,” commented Tipton. “The team continues to find excellent franchise partners to continue our growth in new and existing locations.”
