Bruegger's Bagels has announced plans for aggressive expansion in Nashville, Tenn.; Tallahassee, Fla.; and Huntsville, Ala.

"All three of our focus cities have a strong economy, and our corporate locations in these markets have a loyal following," said David Austin, Bruegger's Bagels president. "We are eager to find franchise partners who will take advantage of this great opportunity to advance their own enterprise and continue Bruegger's Bagels' positive growth in the region."

Interested franchisees will have the opportunity to operate existing company-owned bakeries in each of the three cities. The company is seeking experienced restaurateurs or owner-operators for its partners.

Groupe Le Duff, the world's second-largest company in the bakery-cafe sector, acquired Bruegger's Bagels through its U.S. affiliate, Le Duff America, in 2011. With more than 300 locations in the U.S., the company's goal is to expand by 35 percent within the next three years to more than 400 units through a combination of new franchisees and corporate unit growth.

"With Bruegger's strong corporate backing, excellent franchisee satisfaction and the fact that fast casual is the fastest-growing segment of the restaurant industry, Bruegger's represents an excellent opportunity for single- and multi-unit operators," said Paul Carolan, Le Duff America chief development officer.
