From a young age, Toastique Founder Brianna Keefe’s passion for health, wellness, and fitness motivated her to create fresh smoothies and juices during high school.
As a D1 collegiate athlete, Brianna began experimenting with toast creations to provide the perfect combination of carbs, protein, and healthy fats in an easy, grab-and-go form. These toast masterpieces inspired the idea of a café that would combine her delicious, healthy, on-the-go toasts with the already-proven concept of smoothies and cold-pressed juices.
After bringing her idea to her boyfriend, George “Kyle” Izett, he offered to use his background in commercial construction to design the first location, and was able to complete the buildout in only 40 days!
Brianna and Kyle’s first Toastique location opened in the Wharf district of Washington, D.C. in 2018 to overwhelmingly positive feedback. Toastique was such a big hit that the couple generated over $1 million in sales in their first year.
In 2019, Brianna and Kyle opened a second location in Alexandria, VA, followed by a third Toastique in Washington’s Navy Yard district. Despite opening in summer 2020, at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, the newest Toastique location is proving to be just as popular as its two predecessors.
During the events of the 2020 pandemic, Toastique has been able to quickly pivot their model, implementing third-party delivery options and online ordering with great success. After repeated requests to expand, Brianna and Kyle decided that their gourmet toast business was too good to keep confined to the Northeast, and decided to begin franchising across the country!
