With more than 300 bakeries around the world , Eric Kayser has become one of France’s best-established food brands abroad .
A first bakery in 1996
Son, grandson and great-grandson of a baker, Eric Kayser grew up in kitchens. As a child, he already dreamed of baking bread and traveling. He wanted to leave the family cocoon as soon as possible to discover new cultures and new places. At 14, he began his apprenticeship as a baker, near Cannes. In 1983, when he was only 19, he became a Compagnon du Tour de France. On September 13, 1996, he opened his first bakery at 8, rue Monge in Paris. It was in 1996 that the Kayser house was born. Since then, it has continued to develop and expand its worldwide reputation.
He continues to expand his brand
The artisan baker Éric Kayser was one of the first to venture into the territory of an emblem of French culinary heritage: bread. By betting on a new kneading method and a superior quality of flour, he won this bet considered unprecedented at the time. It was in Japan that this institution really began its international journey. Today, Japan has around thirty boutiques of the French house. Around the world, there are approximately 300 Kayser points of sale. The craftsman is thus continuing his global expansion and is now settling in Panama, Burkina Faso, but also in new addresses in the Middle East and even in Asia. These new addresses will perhaps allow French people living abroad to come across a Kayser bakery on their way and rediscover the flavors of yesteryear.
