February 14, 2017

Olala Crepes will open its first location as a stall in San Diego's Liberty Public Market, offering a menu of stuffed French pancakes to the masses, anticipated to open this March.

Olala Crepes founder Samuel Icyk hails from the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region in the south of France and has always dreamt about starting a business in the United States. He previously worked with the marketing and management departments of a large accounting firm in France and has consulted with several area businesses. Samuel also worked at Walt Disney World in Orlando in the Bocuse French Gastronomic Restaurant. After years learning guest communication, food services and management, Samuel decided to launch his own crepes company in the United States, based on his grand mother's recipes.

The A La Folie in progress!
"Olala crepes is an innovative crepes place located at the Liberty Public Market of San Diego," said Samuel  "We have developed a variety of unique products that offer an alternative to the current fast food options. Olala crepes has developed an array of freshly prepared, high quality, savory and sweet crepes. We are offering new lunch, snack or dinner options that are fast, healthy, interesting, and reasonably priced. Our savory and sweet crepes would be a great fit in your everyday."

Olala Crepes will offer a concise menu of savory and sweet stuffed crepes made from organic French and local products, including organic buckwheat flour imported from Brittany, France. Highlights from the menu include the Je Suis Jaloux with chicken, pesto, cheese and tomatoes; the Je Suis Gourmand with smoked salmon, boursin or cream cheese and spinach; the A La Folie with nutella, strawberry and banana; and the Pas du Tout with peanut butter. There are also a variety of vegan and gluten free options, and the food stall will offer a small menu of soft drinks.
