There's a new crepe in town, all the way from Canada: Called Crepe Delicious, it's a small outfit based on Toronto that's undertaking an expansion to the U.S., with the first location in Texas opening at Stonebriar Centre in Frisco.
According to a release, this will be fifth restaurant in the U.S market, and will open in the spring.
The company views Stonebriar Centre as a "premier shopping center and dining destination for international and domestic shoppers in North Texas," that offers a mix of cultural and entertainment attractions, and also one of the biggest and most modern shopping centers in the area. They have such nice things to say about Stonebriar.
"We are extremely excited for the opening of our fifth location in the United States," says Elik Farin, COO of Crepe Delicious Holdings Inc. in a statement. "With so many people on-the-go, the demand for healthy food has sparked a growing need for health-oriented alternatives in the quick service industry."
Crepe Delicious was founded in 2004 by Oded Yefet, who wanted to do a fast-casual concept and thought crepes would be just the ticket. There are currently more than 65 locations, some in malls, some in commercial buildings, and some street locations.
The company uses fresh ingredients to fill its crepes, grouped under breakfast, savory, and sweet.
Breakfast includes eggs combined with cheese and various other ingredients like spinach and mushrooms.
Savory features more than a dozen varieties with chicken, ham, salmon, tuna, and steak. Options include:
- Falafel Licious: hummus, lettuce, tomato, red onions, falafel, Greek sauce
- Omega 3 Baby: smoked salmon, broccoli, red onions, arugula, tomato, balsamic vinegar
- chicken Teriyaki: chicken breast, tomato, mushroom, onion, mozzarella, and teriyaki sauce served in a crepe "pillow"
Sweet options include the prototypical trio of sweet crepe ingredients: banana, chocolate, and strawberry, plus one with cookie butter, another with cookies, and a S'mores.
They'll join a pretty solid crepe scene in Dallas-Fort Worth, led by the highly regarded local concept Whisk Crepes Cafe, which has two locations: Sylvan Thirty and Legacy Hall food hall in Plano; as well as T-Swirl Crepe, a chain with roots in Japan which has locations in Carrollton and Frisco.
