Sweet Paris Crêperie & Café has announced a newly-signed agreement that will bring three locations to the Phoenix area, in addition to one location to Fort Worth, Texas. Through a multi-unit deal with Strategic Partners, John and Sue Gilbert, Sweet Paris will open one store per year starting in 2024 and ending in 2027. These four units, along with others in various stages of development, will bring Sweet Paris’ total store count to 36 locations in the near future.

“Sweet Paris Creperie & Café checked all the boxes for us - worldly cuisine, incredible service, beautiful decor and ambiance. As strategic partners, we were attracted to the ability to secure territories in areas where we believe the market dynamics are optimal for future success,” say the Gilberts. “It was very important to us to find an ownership and corporate management team that was a good match for us, and after meeting the Sweet Paris team during our Observation Day, we instantly meshed. You couldn't ask for a more friendly, positive, knowledgeable, and supportive team that is willing to do whatever it takes to help their franchisees succeed. We are eager to get started with the brand and share delicious crepes with the Phoenix and Fort Worth communities.”

Sweet Paris Crêperie & Café currently has 14 stores in operation located in Austin, College Station, Houston, and San Antonio, Texas; Doral and Coral Gables, Florida; and in Mexico. The brand is days away from opening its 15th store in Woodbury, Minnesota.

“The territories that will be developed by the Gilbert’s are truly premium markets,” says Allison Chavez, co-founder of Sweet Paris. “The south Fort Worth area will undoubtedly become a high performing Sweet Paris location in the near future and the Phoenix area has impressive potential as it boasts some of the best performing fast casual restaurant concepts in the country. Sweet Paris’ unique concept and cuisine will certainly occupy an untapped segment of the Phoenix market and will consolidate the brand’s growth across the Southwest.”
