Exclusive Brief: 

Au Bon Pain launched its latest pastry innovation to cafés nationwide—Bacon & Cheddar Kolache, a savory handheld breakfast treat with a history of flavor evolution. Originating in the 1700s as a semi-sweet, fruit topped wedding dessert in the Czech Republic, the kolache [koh-LAH-chee] was first introduced to America when Czech immigrants began settling in Texas in the mid-1800s. Over two centuries later, Au Bon Pain takes a nod from the Texan love for savory meats and cheeses and brings the Bacon & Cheddar Kolache to customers’ busy lives.
