Crêpeaffaire's history

When was Crepeaffaire set up? 

Crepeaffaire first began serving its thin pancakes in 2004, when it set up its flagship London location. Over the years, the franchise has evolved to meet the changing demands of its customer base. In the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, for example, it launched a postal pancakes service which allowed customers to order their favourite treats to be enjoyed at home. 

Now, the ambitious brand is looking to expand all across the globe. It’s keen to increase its UK presence to 50 stores within the next five years and is interested in putting its stamp on international locations such as North America and other European countries.
