I WOULD REALLY LOVE TO HAVE MY OWN CrêpinosTM FRANCHISE

WHY A CRÊPINOSTM RESTAURANT?

CULTURE

Crêpinos™ is more than just a business that makes great tasting crepes, fresh juices, and delicious coffee; it’s a culture. The Crêpinos™ organization considers you a member of the family, whether you are an employee or a franchise partner. The founders’ background and their belief in a well-operated, highly efficient, and values-oriented business  make Crêpinos™ Restaurants stand out as the business model others strive to emulate.

BUSINESS MODEL

The Crêpinos™  business model is synonymous with simplicity and efficiency. The crepe business is a billion-dollar industry that continues to grow. The concept of a fresh, made-to-order crepe served  with a fresh juice or a premium quality coffee responds to a burgeoning niche  that Crêpinos™ is ready to fill.

OUR FOUNDERS' EXPERIENCE

Becoming a franchisee in any industry can be extremely challenging. When the founders of Crêpinos™ developed their concept, they understood, thanks to their previous franchising experience, exactly what needs to be done in order to provide their franchise partners the necessary support and structure to help them develop their business.

REQUIREMENTS

OPERATIONAL REQUIREMENTS

Crêpinos™ Restaurant grants its franchises to individuals who are committed to the same values as the founders: pride, passion, attention to detail, commitment and striving to do ones best. The values of the individual and our operational requirements go hand in hand in our organization. Whether you are an experienced  entrepreneur or a corporate executive, our staff will guide you throughout the process of opening and operating your own Crêpinos™ restaurant.

FINANCIAL REQUIREMENTS

The financial requirements for owning a Crêpinos™ restaurant are reasonable and can realistically be met. This could be through any combination of liquid assets, be they cash, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, retirement funds, or any other non-borrowed source. A co-applicant can also be of help in meeting these requirements.

INITIAL INVESTMENT

The costs of opening a Crêpinos™ restaurant depend on several factors such as location, size, and layout, as well as on the following:

  • Franchise fee
  • Opening costs
  • Initial inventory & supplies
  • Construction costs
  • Restaurant equipment & POS package
  • Signage
  • Set-up costs
  • Working capital

Please note that these costs also depend on the progressive increases that may occur in an inflationary economy.
