Popular French-Asian Bakery Debuts at #122, Highlighting the Brand’s Steady Growth in the U.S.
Commerce, CA (RestaurantNews.com) TOUS les JOURS, a French-Asian bakery café chain offering more than 300 different kinds of artisan pastries, gourmet cakes and desserts baked in-store daily, was recently named to Franchise Times’ Annual Top 500 Franchises Report, marking the brand’s first time occupying a spot on the prestigious list. The annual report is an exclusive annual ranking of the 500 largest U.S.-based franchise systems by global systemwide sales. The project is the result of a five-month research and reporting effort that leads to the most credible and objective franchise ranking available. TOUS les JOURS debuted at #122, surpassing several other popular bakery chains.
“2022 has been a landmark year for TOUS les JOURS, and this recognition from Franchise Times underscores our tremendous growth story, which is one that continues to be written,” said Tony Ahn, CEO of TOUS les JOURS. “Our proud debut on this list is a testament to our dedicated franchisees, who are the foundation of the brand’s success, and we look forward to climbing the ranks in the coming years as our expansion in the U.S. continues.”
TOUS les JOURS has experienced considerable franchise growth in the U.S. this year, expanding to 80 total stores, including first-time cafes in Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Nebraska. With over 50 development agreements signed so far in 2022, the brand expects to soon open its 100th U.S. location. Franchise development plans also include another new state location for the brand, which will establish a presence in Nevada for the first time, plus a revamp of the TOUS les JOURS corporate store in Flushing, New York.
Complementing a significant increase in store count, TOUS les JOURS continues to see the popularity of its brand grow with the introduction of dozens of new menu items, plus the expansion of its coffee program, led by award-winning in-house Beverage R&D specialist Alexandra Hager, who earlier this year earned the top spot in the “U.S. Coffee in Good Spirits” category at the U.S. Coffee Championships, the coffee community’s largest annual competition.
In addition to an array of new menu offerings, TOUS les JOURS continues to launch strategic partnerships with brands such as Innersloth. Earlier this year, TOUS les JOURS announced an alliance with the prominent game studio to create a specialty cake modeled after Innersloth’s wildly popular game Among Us, allowing the bakery to reach Innersloth’s large network of devoted fans.
