Houston, TX – July 2017 – Noted as one of the top foodie destinations in America, Houston will soon be home to the 1000th 85°C Bakery Cafe location in the world. The company opens their 1000th worldwide location on Friday, July 7th in the city’s culture-rich community of Bellaire.  Nestled in an area whose population is as diverse as their collective flavor palettes, the bakery will be a welcome addition to the city’s more than 6 million residents.  


According to a recent article in Travel + Leisure, Houston tops the list of foodie destinations in the U.S., with its “irresistible combination of refined tastes and downhome comfort”.  The city ranked No. 1 in three separate food categories.  


Michael Post, 85°C Bakery Cafe’s Houston General Manager, stated “We have the opportunity to bring a unique bakery concept to one of the most diverse cities in America, and we believe Houstonians will welcome us with open arms.”  The Houston Flagship location will be larger (5,886 square feet) than others in the state and will offer both indoor and patio seating to its patrons.  “Every store has its own unique differences such as exterior and furnishings, but one thing remains constant, we all offer quality products at reasonable prices and a level of customer service that is second to none.” 


In honor of their 1000th location opening, the company flew in the President, CEO and Taiwanese P.R. representatives for the ribbon cutting ceremony held that morning. In addition, there is a media reception and an exciting Lion Dance and Keynotes which all together, rounds out the morning’s festivities.

85°C Bakery Cafe offers a wide array of taste-tempting breads, delectable cakes, Guatemalan coffee and refreshing teas, all under the expert hands of master chefs.  The 85°C Bakery Cafe experience begins when patrons walk through the front door, grab a set of tongs and begin walking from one tempting Asian-European inspired pastry to the next.  Their choices are placed neatly on a tray and are boxed as they make their way to the register.  The bakery also has an extensive offering of layer and roll cakes for any special occasion.
