About Crepe Delicious
Crepe Delicious founder and chef Oded Yefet embarked on an international journey to search for the perfect addition to the vibrant North American quick service restaurant industry. His travels took him across the globe from Western Europe to Far East Asia, with stops through North Africa. When he was on the streets of Paris, he saw street vendors serving crepes, as an alternative to North America’s typical hotdog. He began thinking about how to combine the two: Canadians’ love of street food with the delights of a fresh crepe. He took this elegant yet simple concept, combined with over twenty years of hotel and restaurant experience and created Crepe Delicious.
Crepe Delicious is now Canada’s largest chain specializing in the creation of world-class sweet and savoury crepes and is a leader in the trend towards healthier eating.
The first Crepe Delicious opened in Vaughan Mills, north of Toronto, in 2004. Success was almost immediate, the concept was franchised the following year, when the location in Sherway Gardens opened in west Toronto. Today, we are proud of our 15 locations in Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta and Illinois, and have aggressive franchise development plans.
Today, Crepe Delicious is Canada’s fastest growing mall-based creperie, offering sweet and savoury crepes as well as a selection of panini sandwiches, salads and premium beverages. Serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert, Crepe Delicious is a healthy meal option.
Our business philosophy is simple:
Serve Quality, Fresh Ingredients: Using only the finest, freshest ingredients to fill our signature crepes ensures maintenance of a high level of quality.
Offer Quick, Friendly Service: By employing well trained, quality personnel, in addition to the relative ease of operation, we offer fresh and healthy eating combined with quick and courteous service.
Deliver Competitive Value: Customer loyalty is enhanced by offering consistently fresh and tasty entrees and desserts at competitive prices.
Focus on Results: Through quality site selection, low building costs, and controls on food and labour costs, we enhance our collective prospects for financial success.
