The chain opened 21 new cafés in established and new markets in the United States as well as 11 throughout the Middle East in Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Kuwait and Lebanon.
“Thanks to our outstanding franchise partners here in the U.S. and in our international markets, we continued our strong growth pace over the past year,” said Rudy Frederico, vice president of franchise development for Crest Foods, Inc., the franchisor of Nestlé Toll House Café by Chip. “We’ve also been successful in attracting outstanding new franchisees, which sets us up nicely for another excellent year in 2018.”
