Paris Baguette is now open in Herndon’s Arrowbrook Centre

Paris Baguette has officially opened its first location in Herndon.

Located in Arrowbrook Centre at 2324 Silver Arrow Way, the French-inspired bakery serves pastries, croissants, sandwiches, cakes and coffee.

The franchise location is owned by Alma Siddiqui, a local construction estimator, who dreamed of owning her own bakery since childhood.

Siddiqui says that her passion for architecture and design are interconnected with her love for baking.

“When I stumbled upon Paris Baguette, I immediately fell in love with the quality and variety of its products and knew I wanted to bring it to my local community,” Siddiqui said. “With a strong global reputation for high-end bakery café, Paris Baguette had a business model that would offer us great support throughout the process.”

She called Herndon the “perfect place” for Paris Baguette.

“With continued growth of Herndon’s population, there will be an increase in businesses opening as well. I hope both residents and visitors will make it a point to visit Paris Baguette Herndon,” she said.

Siddiqui said she hopes the company will expand to other locations throughout the region. Started in South Korea in 1988, Paris Baguette can now be found around the world, including in Tysons, Fairfax, and Centreville. The company’s U.S. operations, which are based in New Jersey, are expected to reach 200 stores by the end of this year.

An official grand opening is slated for tomorrow (Friday). The bakery is open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Sunday.
