Fresh Baguette bakery opening Tuesday in Old Town

Bethesda-based Fresh Baguette is opening in Old Town on Tuesday (March 1). The first 20 customers in the door will also get free croissants for a year.

The bakery at 1101 King Street joins the companies locations in Maryland and Georgetown — all part of an expansion plan that will see a number of the bakeries popping up around the region.

“We need to pass inspections, but we’re confident that we will open at the end of January or beginning of February, Fresh Baguette’s Retail Manager Jérémy Touchard told ALXnow. “We want to open more locations. In 2022, we will open in Alexandria and we are looking for another location to open in Northern Virginia. We also plan to open a few more locations in 2023.”

All proceeds from the opening will go to Carpenter’s Shelter.

“Come by and get a Free Baguette and purchase a Fresh Baguette Sampler for $3 and all proceeds go to Carpenter’s Shelter,” Fresh Baguette said on social media. ” We are very excited to bring our modern French Bakery to Old Town.”

The first 20 customers in the door will get free croissants for a year (one a week for 52 weeks), and eligible customers will need to be 18. There can only be one winner per household.
