A national bakery cafe chain is opening its first Ohio location in Cincinnati.
Paris Baguette has over 90 storefronts across the country and its newest one is set to open inside 3CDC's recent 4th & Race development.
Cincinnati restaurateur Ai Lin of Sichuan Chili and Gyu-Kaku BBQ will own and operate the new location, per a press release from 3CDC.
According to 3CDC, Lin came across Paris Baguette while visiting her mother in Flushing, Queens, where she is originally from. There are three locations just in that neighborhood alone, so she was inspired to bring Paris Baguette to Cincinnati.
“If I believe in the concept, I want to open one,” Lin says in the release. “I saw the potential here.”
Paris Baguette is based in South Korea and the company's vision, according to its website, is “to reestablish the neighborhood bakery cafe as the heart of the community around the world.”
Looking at the store locator, most of the U.S. locations are on the East and West coasts, with a few in Chicago, Detroit, Atlanta and Dallas.
Cincinnatians will be able to grab sweet and savory items at Paris Baguette, including breads, seasonal desserts, cakes, salads and sandwiches.
An official opening date has not been announced.
Paris Baguette will be located at 124 W. Fourth St., Downtown. Find more information at parisbaguette.com.
