FRANCHISE

Do you want to run a few smiles with us? Be your own boss? Lead a team while getting our fullest support? If you’re passionate about turning little moments into big memories and watching it happen, you’re more than welcome to help us branch out into more areas around the country (and the world!).

 Our main purpose by expanding is to bring something new and fresh to our neighboring communities, while still touching our local cravings. You can already find us in One Galle Face Mall, Colpetty, Bambalapitiya, Mount Lavinia, Maharagama and Maldives, and it would be crepe if you, as an innovative, hands-on, active partner would help us spread smiles across the globe.
