Quick rising wholesome meals franchise opens 12th NYC location
The fast growing acai and smoothie bowl franchise Baya Bar will open its 12th New York location at the foot of the new apartment on the corner of Fifth Avenue in Greenwood Heights, Brooklyn.
Baya Bar was founded in 2016 by former Brooklyn-born finance manager Bill Loesch and has big plans for national expansion.
After a successful start in New Jersey, Louisiana and New York, Loesch decided that the franchise opportunities for acai and smoothie bowl restaurants could expand the concept nationally. “My vision is to see this brand across the country to help people become more aware of what they are putting into their bodies,” he said. “You want to be transparent about what is in your food. The goal is to develop it into a lifestyle brand. “
The other benefit of creating a franchise system is helping others start their own businesses, Loesch said. “I believe in it very much. I would like to give other entrepreneurs this opportunity. There are a lot of people who have problems, people who don’t love 9 to 5. I want to help other hard working people start their own business. They may not know how to do it, but they can watch our process. We can change lives. “
William Tan, Baya Bar franchisee with business partner Nicholas Liu, will open the store in Greenwood Heights. Tan commented, “The location at the foot of 233 Eighteenth was just perfect for our first franchise. We look forward to the opening this summer. “
Developed by Eagle Development Corp. 233 Eighteenth is a six story building with 20 one, two, and three bedroom condominiums. Sales are led by The Aguayo Team at Brown Harris Stevens Development Marketing (BHSDM) and 65 percent of the units are already under contract.
Baya Bar has signed a long-term lease for 1,500 m² of retail space on the ground floor. “Baya Bar will be a welcome addition to the neighborhood and we expect many of our shoppers moving in later this year to enjoy its offerings along with the rest of the community,” said Ioannis Glyptis, director of Eagle Development Company
