You may have heard that local bakery-café chain La Boulange is in major expansion mode. We already had word about their Pier 1 takeover [that fell through]. And that they were opening another location at 222 Sutter Street (formerly Loehman’s). Well, today we get news from the La Boulange team that they’ll be opening the Sutter spot on September 19, with another Walnut Creek location to follow in the fall. AND they now have a tentative opening date of December 1 for a large new location at 465 California Street, a.k.a. the Merchants Exchange Building, which will have a big catering component as well. This would bring their total presence to sixteen locations, up from their current thirteen, by next year. [Grub Street]
