A new Paris Baguette franchise will open on Northern Boulevard in Jackson Heights this fall.
The new cafe will open at 88-16 Northern Blvd and will occupy a newly-constructed building next to a Red Wing boots store, according to a spokesperson for the company.
Paris Baguette–which describes itself as offering French inspired baked goods in a cafe setting–has multiple Queens locations, including in Sunnyside, Astoria, Rego Park and Forest Hills.
Paris Baguette, which is based in South Korea, has about 3,800 locations worldwide.
The brand has about 70 locations in the U.S., and has announced plans to operate 350 locations across the country by 2020. Paris Baguette said in a press release that 300 of these will be franchises.
I agree ,
Good food + Good service = returning customers.
au bon pain would have been a good choice to .
If the service is good and the food is good then it will be a successful business.
The article is about the new cafe opening on the blvd, NOT about what class of people are in the neighborhood , New businesses is always good for everyone.
A bit pricey
Clean / Organized
If there is free Wi-Fi the people would just hang out there and not order anything.
The same as Starbucks
Wow. ‘JH resident’ accurately describes the majority demographic of this neighborhood and is immediately called a dumbass, an uneducated a-hole, and a pathetic racist.
Seems MR, Anonymous, and Maria Gonzales are intolerant of people stating basic facts.
Who names Denny’s and Dunkin’ Donuts to make a point? These two franchises are not aspirational or a sign of improvement.
There are a lot of working / lower class WHITES & BLACKS in this neighborhood also , but the majority demographic is working class Latino. ( emphasis on working )
Hard working Latinos in Jackson Heights.
Just goes to show how many Latinos read the Jackson Heights Post.
LET’S GO METS !!!
In several years it’ll be something else…another ethnic group or culture. Try going with the flow for now.
Anonymous 2, the “flow” seems to “going” to the illegal. Do you really want to go there ?
As a latino myself, i have to agree that this neighborhood is not what it once was. Theres no more variety and a majority of northern boulevard is occupied by clubs and bars.. taking up much of the parking when i come home from work at night but thats a whole other story.. a bit disappointed since i grew up in this neighborhood for almost 40 years. Back then there was a little bit of everything. Now its just salsa clubs and late night bars, mixed with some 99 cent stores, fast food and what not. Northern boulevard is the next roosevelt ave.
This is awesome! We need more businesses like this to help fuel gentrification. Jackson Heights is the new Williamsburg.
No it’s not. This is the second comment where you talk about gentrification. You must really want to live here.
Indeed. I live across the street and thank god something good is coming to the neighborhood other than colombian, peruvian and fast food (junk). We need a good coffee and bakery in the neighborhood.
Haha serves you right
It’s been a pleasure seeing how JHts is coming back with such diverse restaurants along 37th Ave and Northern Blvd. Parking is the biggest issue for the latter if you want to attract people from other neighborhoods
Well, I am an uneducated Latina. However I hold a master’s degree and own an apartment in Jackson Heights where I have lived for 49 years What do you have ? A PhD?
A welcome addition.
It is time more diversity come to Jackson Heights. In the past, there were a lot of different business, no just Latinos or Indians. Hope the new bussines do really great.
It will work, Latinos are great consumers and enjoy great food…. Dumbass
I’m surprised this business is taking a chance on a working/lower class Latino neighborhood. I hope it works out.
All you need to do is take a look at “Cannelle”, the french cafe on 31st Avenue…. always crowded.
Paris Baguette is nowhere as good as Canelle but I would go once in a while. I hope this means more Asian places come along. I would like to see more authentic Southern Chinese and Vietnamese food come to the neighborhood.
Yeah buddy, “low class Latinos who buy 1.2 million dollar homes. Uneducated a-hole!
Well Denny’s just opened on the same block along with Dunkin Donuts also Addictive Wine and Tapas Restaurant is across the street and all of them seem to be doing really well!! I guess those “lower class Latinos” as you refer to them have some extra money to spend! You pathetic racist!
Very happy about the new place opening. So sad to see all the negative comments toward each other. A neighborhood with great food and mean neighbors is not a
good place to live. Is the racial stuff really necessary here? Is it doing anyone any good? PLEASE SPARE US this useless chatter!!!
