Spicy Pickle Franchising, Inc., fast casual restaurants serving all natural premium meat and poultry and other fresh products, provides this update on current business activity at its Bread Garden Urban Café chain.

Marc Geman, CEO of Spicy Pickle Franchising, Inc. which is the franchisor of the Bread Garden Urban Café chain, said, “While we provided information earlier this year in a broad release on the status of the company a recent article in a Vancouver, BC business publication focuses on our expansion efforts and the strong connection that the Bread Garden brand name carries in the Greater Vancouver market. Western Canada, as we predicted when we bought the chain, is weathering the economic storm better than most areas and is providing us with expansion opportunities.

“I just returned from Vancouver and there is a lot of excitement about our expansion. We met with the Vancouver airport authorities and began the process of scheduling access to our location on the C concourse for an opening later this summer. We also toured the University of British Columbia Bread Garden Urban Café that is soft opening this week. Along with the Kamloops airport site which will open early this summer and the new locations in downtown Vancouver at Hornby and Davie and the new CBC building we will add five restaurants to the chain. Our associate, Zahir Dhanani, will be traveling to Australia to open the first Bread Garden Urban Café in Brisbane at the end of March.
