Sweet Paris Crêperie & Café Reaches 359K+ Meals Donated Through its ‘Eat Here, Feed There’ Initiative
Houston-Based Fast-Casual Franchise Supports Community, Donates A Meal Per Participating Crepe Sold
March 15, 2023 // Franchising.com // HOUSTON – Sweet Paris Crêperie & Café recently donated 11,871 additional meals to the Houston Food Bank through its ‘Eat Here, Feed There’ program. The brand’s leadership team and staff members of several Houston stores visited the food bank on February 9th to present the check and to volunteer in the food bank’s activities for the day.
Sweet Paris has donated 359,705 meals and counting to local food banks since the program’s inception in 2018, including the Houston Food Bank, Brazos Valley Food Bank, Montgomery County Food Bank, San Antonio Food Bank, Central Texas Food Bank, Feeding South Florida, and Fundación Delia Morán. The ‘Eat Here, Feed There’ program was created to give back to local food banks, specifically targeting children in need. For each crêpe sold with the food bank logo on the menu, the brand donates a meal to fight hunger. Sweet Paris has three crêpes on the menu that benefit this program: the Allison's Parfait, the Truffled Caprese, and the Lemon Sugar.
Each franchise location donates to a food bank in their local area. The brand typically makes monetary donations to partnered food banks every six months. This initiative provides a way for Sweet Paris franchisees to get familiar and engrained in the local community through social efforts, creating positive change in their market.
“From the initial conception of Sweet Paris, we were inspired by fellow entrepreneurs who built social causes into their successful businesses,” said Allison Chavez, co-owner of Sweet Paris. “We decided to help fight hunger with hunger by donating a meal every time the Allison's Parfait, Truffled Caprese, and Lemon Sugar are ordered, targeting programs that support children. It is our honor to be able to continue donating meals to children in the communities we serve through the support of our guests. We hope to continue to expand this program and be able to feed more people every year.”
