Baguette Express goes global – Spread the word

UK franchise success story Baguette Express is seeking international partners to take its award-winning business global.

The baguette and sandwich chain network, which currently has more than 70 stores in the UK and will shortly be opening in the Republic of Ireland and the Middle East and is now looking for master licensees in Europe, Asia, Russia, the Baltics, India, South Africa, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and beyond.

Baguette Express has built up its reputation on providing fresh, healthy, high quality food in prime town centre locations. The company has also developed a kiosk/concession model of their shops within shopping centres and business parks.

Franchisor Robin Stenhouse said: “Since establishing our first shops in 1999 we have proven the Baguette Express business model is sustainable and profitable. We already successfully offer single unit and master franchise licenses here in the UK. Many of our franchisees operate multiple outlets. Having appointed master licensees recently in Republic of Ireland and Dubai we are now ready to take our business to new international markets and we are looking for well-motivated, ambitious and determined partners to become master franchisees.”

Country master franchise licenses range from £150,000 to £350,000 and additional working capital is required to grow and develop the Baguette Express brand.
