Fresh Food for those who don't have time to wait
Croissant Express is a nationwide company, and you will find a number of franchisees around different parts of town. The biggest challenge any business has, that focuses an expansion through a franchisee operation, is ensuring that each venue follows the company policies and procedures.

My first introduction to a Croissant Express was mostly out of haste. I had been working long hours, and had reached a point of being completely famished. I saw a Croissant Express logo which was very inviting because it had a bicycle in it. Anyone who knows me knows I love cycling.
I purchased a salmon and cream cheese bagel. The problem with bagels is that they can be hard and biting into them can be a complete challenge. This bagel was nothing like I had ever experienced. It was soft, tasty and left me wanting another.
Of course an opportunity was presented where I could have another. It was many months later, and I was basically in the same situation. This time I ordered their B.L.T Bagel. All their prepared B.L.T's had sold out, and without wasting time they quickly made me another. I was impressed with this service because many cafes tell you that what you see is what you get, and if you don't see it you don't get it.
The key to any businesses is getting it right. If you aim for average, and achieve that, then you set that benchmark for that expectation. I am not sure if Croissant Express aimed for average, because this B.L.T bagel was just a good as the one I had the very first time. This was a clear indication that they have set their standards well above average!
Would I recommend Croissant Express? Yes! If you are looking for a quick, easy meal that is fresh and tasty then Croissant Express will be your port of call! I can envision myself stopping here in the near future. Hopefully a little sooner, because writing this article hast made me hungry!
