South Korea-based café and bakery concept Paris Baguette is set to further expand its US footprint by signing a one-unit agreement in Leesburg, Virginia.

The restaurant brand signed a new deal with Farooq Siddiqui.

Siddiqui stated: “When looking for the right franchise opportunity, Paris Baguette was the ideal fit because of its amazing product line, store design and proven response from communities throughout the US.”

Paris Baguette will now have five locations in Virginia.

Paris Baguette chief development officer Eric Lavinder stated: “We are thrilled to announce additional expansion within Virginia. There’s a tremendous amount of opportunity in the bakery café space.

“No other bakery café franchisors are doing what Paris Baguette is on the same scale. Our ability to stay true to our bakery café roots while embracing aggressive expansion has garnered attention, and that only serves to drive us forward.”
