THE WORKS CAFÉ NAMED ONE OF AMERICA’S HOTTEST FAST CASUAL RESTAURANTS 

 

On February 1, 2022 The Works Café was named one of QSR Magazine’s 40/40 hottest startup fast casual restaurants in the country.

The article read, “After 30-plus years in operation, The Works Café remains true to its original mission of serving wholesome food, but it's also ready to enter a new era of growth and evolution.”

Richard French, founder and CEO, has a long history in the food business. He launched Bagel Works, in Manchester, VT back in 1988 after graduating from University of Vermont. Inspired by his love of good food, French has spent more than three decades growing his café concept.

“It is an incredible honor to be recognized by QSR’s 40/40,” said French. “The past two years have provided challenges for everyone; however, we did our best to use it as an opportunity for company reflection and growth.”

The Works Café still reflects the early idealism of its founder. The company continues to run on the principal of the triple bottom line – people, planet, profit.

The 33-year-old chain of cafes has implemented an online ordering platform and app along with partnerships with third-party delivery services, DoorDash, GrubHub and ezCater.With nine locations across the Northeast, including their now open Latham, NY location, The Works Café aims to continue expansion by opening more than a dozen new cafés in the coming years.

“It’s a major goal and undertaking to open a café, but we are determined to serve ‘eat well, feel good’ food to as many customers as we can—providing everyone their daily staples at that!” said French.
