When guests walk into Eight Turn Crêpe, they are welcomed by friendly faces who guide them through sweet and savory menu options, including the brand’s famous crème brûlée crêpe and delicious Philly cheesesteak crêpe. The innovative restaurant concept serves mouthwatering Japanese crêpes made from fresh, high-quality ingredients for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and it is providing an investment opportunity that is just as appetizing to aspiring entrepreneurs.
“Consistency, quality, delicious food and a friendly atmosphere – that is what our customers love us for. Our investors love us for the same reasons and the ease of operation. We provide a simple model that is easy to assimilate to, allowing our franchisees to make a healthy living, backed by a great team of professionals providing ongoing crucial support,” said Marleen Zhik, president of franchising.
With three new franchise locations opening in Tampa, Florida, Dallas, Texas, and Houston, Eight Turn Crêpe is positioned for further expansion efforts in hot markets across the U.S., including New York, California, Illinois, Virginia, Washington, and Connecticut.
The brand’s recent growth demonstrates the strength and efficiency of its business model and uniquely appetizing concept. Zhik, who spoke of Eight Turn Crêpe’s “excellent” franchisees, reflected on how well the brand has persevered and performed throughout the pandemic.
“We have been in business almost a decade and have only been thriving, and that in itself is a testament to the greatness we deliver. One of our franchisees opened shortly before the pandemic and has already made his money back in less than three years. That is unheard of in the restaurant business, and that is a testament to the magic we make happen, and the excellent opportunity that an investor could foresee when considering our brand for a franchise,” she said.
The brand is committed to helping franchise owners be knowledgeable and competitive at startup and beyond. Prospective franchise owners who become
a part of the growing Eight Turn Crêpe family receive comprehensive training and support.
“Once the agreement is signed, we assist with everything, including the site selection and buildout, cutting-edge store design, recipe and menu development, operations training, local marketing training, staffing support, vendor and equipment selection, and grand opening support,” Zhik said. “We have monthly conference calls and offer a dedicated support line for the life of the partnership. Our success depends on the success of our franchisees, and we are there for them every step of the way.”
Every Eight Turn Crepe offers at least five different revenue streams, including dine-in, takeout and delivery options, a booming catering business, and perfect on-the-go food for pop-ups and food festivals. Sure to please every palate, the fast-casual concept is available in multiple business models.
As if the brand isn’t appealing enough, Zhik shared a few more reasons why prospective franchisees should join the team. “We are a brand that brings in a healthy revenue stream and has a track record of proven success. Take a look at our FDD; we are completely transparent with our numbers, and they speak for themselves,” she said.
