Sweet Paris Crêperie Expands Midwest Presence with Multi-Unit Deal in Minnesota

Houston-Based Fast-Casual Brand to Open Four Locations in Minnesota

August 30, 2022 // Franchising.com // HOUSTON, TX - Sweet Paris Crêperie & Café announced a multi-unit deal that will bring four stores to Minnesota, specifically the Minneapolis and St. Paul areas.

Behind this deal is a group of partners with more than 55 years of restaurant franchise experience combined: Dan and Brenda Vansteenburg, Dustin Wetzel and Pete Thelen. Dan and Brenda Vansteenburg, a dynamic husband and wife duo, started their restaurant career with Jimmy John’s in 2001. They currently own and operate stores in the Twin Cities market. The Vansteenburgs found a sweet spot in franchising but weren’t always involved in the industry. Dan began his professional career as a special education teacher and then worked for an information technology firm. Throughout his various roles, a passion for people has always remained centric and played a crucial role in building a franchise empire.

“After our first visit with the Sweet Paris leadership team in Houston, we knew this was a concept we wanted to pursue and bring to the Twin Cities,” said Dan Vansteenburg. “Everything about the brand, from the authentic menu to the charming store design that transports you to the streets of Paris, brings a unique experience that the people of Minnesota will be excited about.”

“We are thrilled to take Sweet Paris to the wonderful people of Minnesota,” said Allison Chavez, co-founder of Sweet Paris. “We are honored to be working with local business leaders such as Dan, Dustin and Pete to propel the Sweet Paris brand further north.”

The brand has become one of the hottest restaurant franchises in Texas with an extravagant ambiance and delicious food and drinks made of the highest quality ingredients and bold flavors. Made from scratch, the dishes are as delicious as they are beautiful. The lavish interiors and the artful food and drinks make Sweet Paris a favorite place for haute social media influencers.
