7 Bakery Chains That Serve the Freshest Baked Goods

Einstein Bros. Bagels

Einstein Bros. Bagels not only bakes all bagels daily on-site, but also has hot bagels going out of the ovens for the majority of the day.

Pret A Manger

Given that baked goods and pastries comprise a significant portion of the Pret A Manger menu, it is not surprising that this chain has high standards for these items.

Panera Bread

Panera Bread utilizes its in-store furnaces daily to bake an abundance of fresh bread. Across the United States, the bakery chain operates facilities that produce fresh dough for its restaurants.

Tous les Jours

A key component of the business model of Tous les Jours, a South Korean bakery chain with more than 90 locations in the United States, is the daily baking of bread and pastries. Indeed, Tous les Jours translates to "every day" in French.


If you've ever smelt the enticing aroma emanating from the Cinnabon in your local shopping mall, it's probably no surprise that the chain's signature cinnamon rolls are fairly darn fresh.

Crumbl Cookies

since the first Crumbl Cookies store opened in Utah in 2017, both its popularity and scale have skyrocketed. Crumbl cannot guarantee that customers will receive the same biscuits every week due to its limited, rotating menu.

Auntie Anne's

Auntie Anne's has high standards for the freshness of these signature baked products as a chain whose menu is centered around soft pretzels.
