The Bruges concept is based on the European approach to food—indulgent, flavorful and to be enjoyed with friends and family. We believe food should be savored not just eaten. This carries over to our approach to franchising. A Bruges Waffles & Frites owner/operator doesn’t just own a business; he or she becomes part of something bigger—the Bruges family. Our collaborative approach to franchising means everyone works together to build something better and to share in mutual success.
The Bruges concept was born in 2003 when Belgian natives Pierre Vandamme and Philippe Wyffels met in Salt Lake City and lamented how difficult it had become to find the authentic Belgian flavors they had enjoyed growing up. Starting with family recipes and their memories, they worked in diligently in the kitchen until they had perfectly recreated the Liège waffle of their youth. When they shared their rediscovery at the local farmer’s market, it was an instant success. They soon expanded operations to include genuine Belgian frites and other Belgian specialties served at multiple restaurant locations. Today, food lovers from all over the world have enjoyed Bruges’ famous waffles and frites! Now available as a franchise opportunity, Bruges is seeking owner-operators to help us share the Belgian experience throughout the American West.
