When Bruges introduced their waffles at the 2003 Salt Lake City Farmers’ Market, we were on a mission to share the best Belgian waffles people had ever tasted. What started as a humble waffle cart has grown to four year round Utah restaurant locations, with franchise opportunities now available. On our way to becoming one of Utah’s best food franchise opportunities, Bruges has also received local and national media attention and awards. Our latest recognition comes from the popular blog “The Culture Trip,” where we were named among the Best Places to Eat in Salt Lake City.
Salt Lake is a culturally diverse city. That diversity is reflected in the food options the city offers. From Mexican to Japanese, American and now Belgian, Salt Lake’s exotic flavors satisfy even the pickiest of eaters, and Bruges is flattered to have made the Best Places to Eat list. Our authentic Belgian cuisine is not like your average waffle house! From savory to sweet and everything in between, Bruges has something for everyone. Our dishes are all authentic, fresh and delicious, and served in an atmosphere described as ‘Little Belgium.’
Each of our restaurants features elements of Belgian culture from the famous statue Manneken Pis, to our most recent Belgian comic mural inside our Draper store. The mural, painted by famed Belgian artist Adrien Noterdaem, brings to life some of our most famous menu items in true Belgian comic fashion. We aim to deliver a true European dining experience to each customer who dines with us from the moment they smell the waffles to the moment they leave our restaurants.
Currently, Bruges is offering franchise opportunities throughout the Western United States. We look for franchise partners who can catch our vision and help us become one of the best food franchise restaurants in the nation. Franchisees should be leaders in their community, be driven by achievement, and be ready to work in a fast paced environment. We provide all the training needed to be successful even with no prior food experience. If you can smell the waffles and are interested in the opportunity to bring the authentic flavors of Belgium to your town, we invite you to visit our online discovery center!
