NEW YORK, Oct. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- 25 years ago this week, Alain Coumont opened the first Le Pain Quotidien in Brussels. Coumont's concept was simple: create a place where friends, family and even newcomers could come together and linger around a communal table to have their daily bread. What began as a side business — borne from his desire to serve high quality bread both at his restaurant and to the community — quickly became a success.
The foundation of Le Pain Quotidien is a menu rooted in fresh, pure and organic ingredients. Signature tartines and generous salads have remained central to the menu, with sweet bakery items abound. Ever mindful of the range of palates and dietary needs of guests, Le Pain Quotidien has consistently offered dishes that ensure everyone has delicious and healthy options.
A haven for quality, handmade breads, Le Pain Quotidien serves 6 different 100% organic loaves, reminiscent of those Coumont enjoyed as a young boy. From crisp baguettes to dense sourdoughs, they serve as the base for much of the menu and are sold retail at every location.
Over its 25 years, Le Pain Quotidien has remained a leader at providing unparalleled food quality in a quick service environment. While it has grown to 230 locations across 18 countries, Le Pain Quotidien maintains the same ambiance and homey spirit it established in the beginning.
