The Sugar House Chamber of Commerce sponsored a ten day ‘Sample Sugar House’ event that featured some of the best food franchise locations in the city, offering three course meals at affordable prices. Our Bruges Sugar House restaurant was excited to participate in the event and offered a three course meal consisting of a Ricky Burger, authentic Belgian Frites, and a Liege waffle with either our homemade creme fraiche and strawberries or caramelized apples and ice cream. Other restaurant franchises that participated include:
- Wasatch Brew Pub
- Mellow Mushroom
- Pei Wei
- Even Stevens
- Red Lobster
- Kimi’s Chop & Oyster House
- Este Pizza
“The goal of the event is to benefit the business owners in the Sugar House area,” said Scott Fletcher, Sugar House Chamber of Commerce, Marketing Chair. “We think after this year, all the restaurants will see the benefit in it and want to participate.”
Our Sugar House restaurant was impressed with the turnout they experienced and will definitely participate in this event again in the future.
Restaurant Franchises Offer a Sweet Opportunity
Bruges Waffles & Frites is expanding through the western United States and is looking for franchise partners to help us build our brand. Ideal candidates are active in the communities they plan on franchising in and are aware of events similar to the Sample Sugar House one, and are willing to participate for more exposure to their business.
Bruges began when Belgian natives Pierre Vandamme and Philippe Wyffels met in Salt Lake City, Utah and reminisced on the cuisine from their childhoods. The two men set out to recreate the famous Liege waffle they remembered from their youth and debuted their creation in the Salt Lake City farmers market. The demand for authentic food led them to open a year round restaurant location in Salt Lake City and expand their menu offerings. They later opened three additional Utah restaurants.
Bruges offers a wide variety of menu items ranging from the sweet Liege waffle to the savory Machine Gun Sandwich™. If you are searching for opportunities with restaurant franchises and can smell the waffles, we want to hear from you!
