Woops! Franchise Announces Plans to Expand in Texas
The premier macaron franchise plans to open several more locations in the Lonestar State in 2017
Woops! is entering the new year with expansion efforts that far exceed the record-breaking year the premier macaron franchise had in 2016. Last year, the brand expanded well beyond its New York City base to multiple states around the nation. Woops! also went big in Texas, expanding into three of the biggest markets in the Lonestar State: Austin, Dallas and Houston. Now, Woops! is actively seeking savvy investors and first-time entrepreneurs alike to bring the joy of macarons to their communities across the entire state.
Why is now a great time to open a Woops!? In 2016, Woops! successfully emerged as the nation’s premier macaron franchise, growing to nearly 40 locations nationwide, as well selling thousands upon thousands of macarons. The result of our success is evident in the fact that Woops! is on target to become the largest provider of retail macarons in the U.S. in early 2017.
“Now is the perfect time to invest in Woops! in Texas,” says Ben Woodruff, Director of Franchise Development with Woops! “We’ve successfully opened two franchise locations in Dallas and Houston, and those locations are doing tremendously well right out of the gate. In 2016, we also signed a franchise agreement to open a bakeshop in Austin, and that will be open shortly. There’s a ton of interest in our brand, and we’re riding a wave of enthusiasm as we enter 2017 to open many more locations in Texas. The interest in Woops! is so great that we plan to have 100 locations open by the beginning of 2018.”
