Learn About Bonte Wafflerie Cafe Franchises
Once upon a time, on a college break, Bonte Wafflerie Cafe founder went backpacking
through Europe after completing a grueling round of midterms at the University
of Colorado. While in Brussels, he discovered one of Belgium’s most popular
offerings: the sugar waffle or gaufre (pronounced go-fră). No matter where he
ventured, he was captivated again and again by the sweet-scented aroma and
luscious taste of these expertly prepared, street-vendor treats. Suddenly, he
had a vision to make these treats available to the residents in his own city: In
that moment, Bonte, which means “goodness” in French, was born. Since 2003,
Bonte Wafflerie Cafe has been enchanting the people of Philadelphia with the same sweet
experience encountered on the streets of Brussels.
Bonte Wafflerie Cafes offer upscale customers gourmet private-label coffee, a variety of
specialty espresso beverages, freshly baked goods, gourmet sandwiches and
salads, soups and of course our signature Belgian sugar waffles. Our products
are made with all-natural ingredients, and we take pride in providing prompt,
friendly and personalized service, delivered in a genuine, enthusiastic way. The
philosophy of Bonte is simple: to create premium Neighborhood Cafe’s recognized
for high quality products and exceptional service to our customers. Our fresh,
diverse menu, innovative store design, and proven operating model allow Bonte to
offer a huge opportunity for new and existing franchisees.

should! Bonte has positioned itself to take advantage of the two quickest
growing sectors of the rapidly growing Premium Convenience Restaurant Sector:

coffee is on fire! America’s love affair with specialty coffee has exploded into
