KATY/FORT BEND COUNTY (Covering Katy News) - Kolache Factory, a unique national chain based in Katy is being recognized as a leading franchise in the Franchise Times. The list ranks the top 500 franchise-based businesses on systemwide sales. Kolache Factory is listed as number 445 on the newly-released list of best-performing franchise systems in the United States. 

Kolache's have been popular pastry in the Houston area for decades. The semi-sweet pastry dough filled with sweet or savory fillings is most popular at breakfast but can be enjoyed anytime. 

The company is in the midst of a nationwide expansion. It had more than $36.5 million in systemwide sales in 2018, operating in 60 locations.

“We are thrilled to be nationally recognized by the Franchise Times 200+ for our growth, but we are even more proud to be leading the growing bakery-café market with our popular kolaches - the perfect on-the-go meal for breakfast or lunch,” said Dawn Nielsen, Kolache Factory Chief Operating Officer.

Kolache Factory was founded in 1982 by John and Jerri Banks, who identified a need for a fresh, high-quality breakfast that could be eaten “on the run.” They encouraged consumers to try the high-quality, fresh pastries filled with fruits, meat and cheeses and soon they were in high demand for business meetings, family breakfasts, on-the-go lunches and afternoon snacks.

Kolache Factory has been recognized as one of the Top 5 drive-thrus in America by Food Network, one of the fastest-growing companies in Houston and one of the top 50 foodservice bakeries in the United States by Modern Baking magazine. Entrepreneur magazine named it among the top 500 food-based franchises in 2019. Kolache Factory is privately owned and operated.
