BRUGES FRANCHISE RESTAURANTS ARE MOVING TO TEXAS. WILL YOU BE THE ONE TO INTRODUCE YOUR TOWN TO A TASTE OF BELGIUM?

From Waffle Cart to Franchising

When Belgian natives Pierre Vandamme and Philippe Wyffels met in Salt Lake City, Utah, they became fast friends as they reminisced about their childhoods in Belgium. They longed for the flavorful and authentic cuisine they remembered from their youth, and set out to recreate the famous Liège waffle.
As they shared their invention with their Salt Lake community, they experienced increased demand, media attention from both local and national outlets, and the opportunity for expansion. Their humble waffle cart was relocated to a year-round restaurant located in downtown Salt Lake which has now grown into four Utah locations, and now the opportunity for franchise restaurants in Texas.
