The rapidly growing fast casual restaurant featuring crepes and waffles opens second location in Florida
Coral Gables, FL (RestaurantNews.com) Sweet Paris Crêperie & Café, the ultra-popular restaurant brand specializing in sweet and savory crêpes, hot drinks and more, recently opened in The Plaza Coral Gables at 3005 Ponce De Leon Blvd, Suite 142 in Coral Gables. The store will celebrate its grand opening with a special event on Thursday, August 24th, 2023.
Founded in 2012 by Allison and Ivan Chavez, Sweet Paris has quickly become one of the hottest restaurant franchises in the country with its Instagram-worthy, French-inspired interiors and delicious food and drinks made of the highest quality ingredients and bold flavors. The duo met as undergraduate students at the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania and bonded over a love for crêpes. Soon, they made it their mission to “Revive the Art of Eating Crêpes” and began traveling the world in search of flavors and new ways to bring this popular street food to market. Made from scratch, the dishes are as delicious as they are beautiful.
“We are absolutely thrilled to announce the grand opening of Sweet Paris in the heart of the beautiful and vibrant Coral Gables community,” Allison Chavez said. “Located at The Plaza Coral Gables, our new store is surrounded by the charm and elegance that this city is known for. We cannot wait to welcome everyone as we embark on this exciting new chapter, and let Sweet Paris transport our guests to a beautiful world of culinary delight!”
Sweet Paris in Coral Gables is a corporate-owned location and will be operated by long-time general manager, Marlen Navarrete. Marlen moved from Texas to South Florida to take the helm of this beautiful new location. With over five years of experience working with the company, Navarrete’s leadership will guide her team to provide the impeccable level of service and elevated experience that Sweet Paris is known for.
The community is encouraged to join in the grand opening celebration of the new location. Guests are encouraged to sign up for the Sweet Paris Passport to receive exclusive monthly promotions, a birthday bonus, collect points and use them for purchase, receive texts regarding upcoming giveaways, and receive bonus entries for giveaways.
