Amelie’s French Bakery managing partner Bruce Willette (founder of Salsarita’s) wants to massive new uptown location to pave the way for a major expansion of the Amelie’s brand.
Amélie’s already has 5 locations, in addition to the original in NoDa and it’s current small location in Uptown, they also have opened bakeries in South Charlotte, Rock Hill, and Atlanta. The first Amélie’s bakery opened in 2008, and has since become a staple in Charlotte as one of the few places that are open 24-7.

Their expanded uptown location will be open for 24 hours on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
