Sweet Paris Crêperie & Café is set to open its first ever location in the state of Florida, in the city of Doral on Monday, December 5.

Sweet Paris in Doral is owned and operated by local entrepreneurs Antonio Arizpe and Ivette Escobar. Originally from Mexico, Escobar began her career in marketing for a cosmetics company in Los Angeles. In 2012, she started her journey working with the corporate team at Sweet Paris as the chief development officer, leading the opening of nine stores for the company. Arizpe, originally from Mexico as well, studied International Affairs and worked for the Mexican consulate in Houston, then found a career in residential construction. In 2021, the couple decided to sign a multi-unit deal and own their own Sweet Paris locations in Florida.

“After working the corporate side of Sweet Paris for so many years and fully learning the brand, opening a café of my own was a no-brainer,” says Escobar. “We have a passion for food and love the culture that Sweet Paris has created with its employees and franchisees over the years – plus, being a part of the brand’s continued nationwide growth is a huge deal for us. We completely trust the brand and are excited to bring the first location to the Miami area.”

“We couldn’t ask for a better Strategic Partner than Ivette. Watching her grow from her position at the corporate office to owning her own Sweet Paris location makes me so proud,” says Sweet Paris co-founder Allison Chavez.

The ongoing expansion of Sweet Paris will bring the total store count to 25 locations in the near future, with 15 stores currently in various stages of development in Texas, Oklahoma, Minnesota and Florida. A second location in the Miami area will open in early 2023.
