Dawn Nielsen, Chief Operating Officer

We are thrilled to be nationally recognized by the Franchise Times 200+ for our growth, but we are even more proud to be leading the growing bakery-café market with our popular kolaches — the perfect on-the-go meal for breakfast or lunch.

Kolache Factory, a unique national pastry chain based in Katy, Texas, is being recognized as a leading franchise in the Franchise Times Top 200+® rankings. Kolache Factory came in at #445 on the newly-released list of best-performing franchise systems in the United States. The list ranks 500 franchise-based businesses on systemwide sales for the previous year. Kolache Factory hit more than $36.5 million in systemwide sales in 2018, operating in 60 locations.

“We are thrilled to be nationally recognized by the Franchise Times 200+ for our growth, but we are even more proud to be leading the growing bakery-café market with our popular kolaches — the perfect on-the-go meal for breakfast or lunch,” said Dawn Nielsen, Kolache Factory Chief Operating Officer.

The Franchise Times Top 200+ is the only ranking by systemwide sales and units of the largest 500 U.S.-based franchise brands. The 200 largest U.S.-based franchisors grew their combined sales by more than $26.9 billion, or 4.2 percent, over the last year.

Kolache Factory’s lucrative franchise opportunity capitalizes on the year-over-year growth of the breakfast daypart and the growing popularity of a mid-morning snack. The semi-sweet pastry dough filled with sweet or savory fillings fits the bill for breakfast, lunch, and is the perfect go-to snack any time of day. Kolache Factory is in the midst of a nationwide expansion and its recognition by the Franchise Times as a leading franchise validates that continued growth in sales and territories.
