With 15 stores currently operating—including two in the Miami market—popular café and restaurant chain Sweet Paris Crêperie and Café has signed a 15-unit agreement that will bring the brand to several new markets, including Florida markets like Orlando, Jacksonville, and Tampa.
The agreement was signed with Virentes Partners Group, South Carolina- and Florida-based multi-family company.
“The Chavez family and its extremely talented management team have built an incredible brand that has endured and grown for more than a decade in varying economies and states,” Jim D’Aquila, the Managing Member of Virentes Partners Group, said in a press release. “We are excited to introduce Sweet Paris into new territories. The festive atmosphere within a Sweet Paris location, the proficiency of the operations, and the extraordinarily wonderful culinary offerings and hospitality set Sweet Paris apart from other concepts in the restaurant industry. With table side food delivery, its chandeliers overhead, Venetian plaster walls, marble tables, plated food and silverware, it is almost a misnomer to label it as QSR.”
Sweet Paris plans on opening at least one location in 2024, with all 15 expected to open within the next eight years, spread across the Orlando, Jacksonville, and Tampa Bay areas in Florida; Raleigh and the Piedmont Triangle in North Carolina; and the greater Nashville area in Tennessee.
“The territories that will be developed by the Virentes Partners Group are truly premium markets and the fastest growing cities in the South Eastern United States,” says Allison Chavez, co-founder of Sweet Paris. “We are excited to welcome these three families with ample business experience to Sweet Paris and watch them thrive in these three untapped states.”
