In the spring of 1978, businessman Louis Kane was strolling through Boston's historic Faneuil Hall Marketplace when he noticed a display showcasing a new line of French bakery ovens. The aroma and quality of the fresh breads were enchanting. So enchanting in fact, it gave Louis an idea. Why not make wonderful, authentic fresh breads and croissants easily available to everyone in the city? From this chance encounter came the first ever Au Bon Pain.
Au Bon Pain arrived in Thailand July 1997, and the first Au Bon Pain
bakery café was opened at Sinthorn Building on Wireless Road. Today,
over 60 Au Bon Pain cafés are in operation with plans for further expansions
into urban and suburban areas.
All Au Bon Pain cafés provides a unique blend of fresh, nutritious and trans-fat free products that caters to customers of all tastes — ranging from breakfast bagels and all day sandwiches made from daily fresh baked bread, highest quality pastry, all natural soups and cool crisp salads, all complemented by delicious cold or hot beverages. These delightful offerings are matched by excellent service, warm and friendly atmosphere.
Today, there are over 300 Au Bon Pain cafés throughout the world. Operating in the United States, including Thailand and India. Each café is situated in some of the most accessible corners of these cities, ranging from bustling business centers and well-known shopping complexes to hospitals and universities.
