Franchising

Magnolia Bakery opened its first location on a cozy street corner in the heart of New York’s West Village in the summer of 1996.  From its inception, Magnolia Bakery has been cherished for its classic American baked goods, vintage décor, and warm and inviting atmosphere.  We are dedicated to serving fresh, handmade baked goods with superior customer service.  Today, Magnolia Bakery can be found in New York, LA and Chicago in the U.S., as well as Tokyo, Seoul, Mexico City, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Doha, Kuwait City, Amman and Riyadh. We continue franchising internationally, targeting markets including the UK, China, Canada, Brazil and Puerto Rico for upcoming expansion. 

Magnolia Bakery captured the attention of a worldwide audience after being featured on the hit TV show Sex and the City, the Saturday Night Live Digital Short:  Lazy Sunday and in popular movies such as The Devil Wears Prada and Prime.  Included in numerous television shows and movies, Magnolia Bakery has established itself as a pop cultural icon.  Our famed reputation continues to grow by serving high quality products with excellent customer service.
