FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Irvine, Calif. – May 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 has just announced the impending opening of 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 will be flying in the President, CEO and Taiwanese P.R. Representative for the ribbon cutting ceremony to be held that morning. In addition, there will be a media reception and an exciting Dragon Dance to round out the morning’s festivities.
Schedule of Events:
• 8 – 8:30 AM – Media Reception
• 8:30 – 8:50 AM – Dragon Dance
• 8:50 – 9 AM – Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
• 9 – 9:15 AM – Public welcome by company President

The soon-to-open Houston location of 85°C Bakery brings the company count to 1000 across the globe, and the 30th in the USA. The first US location to open in 2008 in Irvine, Calif. became an overnight sensation, spurring sister openings throughout California, Washington and Texas. Two additional Houston locations are in the works for later this year.
85°C Bakery Cafe’s offer 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 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 pre-made and made-to-order layer and roll cakes for any special occasion.
