Following debuts in Indiana, Nevada and Ohio in December 2022, TOUS les JOURS is set to add to its existing 27 outlets in North Carolina, California and New York in January 2023.
“2022 was a banner year for TOUS les JOURS, which ended with the December addition of three new locations in three new states, and we are proud to be dotting the US map and expanding our accessibility for guests around the country. As we enter new markets, we continue to experience an incredible amount of enthusiasm from these communities, and we are excited to maintain the momentum throughout 2023, as we expand our presence to new areas and invite new customers to experience the TOUS les JOURS brand,” said Sam Hong, Business Development Manager, TOUS les JOURS.
Founded in South Korea in 1997, TOUS les JOURS began franchising in the US in 2004 and is targeting 100 stores across the country in 2023, and 1,000 by 2030.
