On the heels of its bankruptcy buy of Le Pain Quotidien, the private equity investment firm Aurify Brands confirmed it will reopen bakeries in Greenwich and New Canaan, but not in Stamford where Le Pain Quotidien has a location opposite Fairway Market.

Le Pain Quotidien filed for bankruptcy protection in late May, indicating in initial court documents the possibility of ending its Stamford presence among “dark store” leases slated for rejection. Fairway is separately readying for a July closure of its Canal Street supermarket, unless a white knight surfaces to purchase the store.

Aurify Brands operates several restaurant chains including The Little Beet Table which has a location on Greenwich Avenue in Greenwich.
