The bakery-cafe chain first entered the U.S. market by way of Los Angeles in 2005 and has spent the past decade growing in California and on the East Coast. Its Facebook page reads like a map pinpointing its development in urban areas. What sets Paris Baguette apart is its glass display cases filled with a range of pastries and desserts and its array of salads and sandwiches in grab-and-go boxes for diners who don’t have time to wait for an order to be prepared.
