If one can't learn to make a crepe after  10 minutes, of practice  then something is wrong.

Interesting thread.

 

Evidently I am one of the few people in the Western Hemisphere who is not planning to open a crepe stand. wink.gif

 

I'm going to check in on this thread from time to time to see how all you aspiring entrepreneurs are making out. I hope you all will keep us up to date.  I've started a couple businesses in my time (one still operating after 30 years, now tended by my son) so I have a deep appreciation for your hopes. I wish you all  the greatest success.

 

Ummm... on the other hand, if you ALL make it big, we may well find ourselves up to our a**** in crepes! rolleyes.gif

Hi,

 

I am trying to calculate the cost of running a crepe stand at my farmer market, I really appreciate if someone can share how much propane can I expect to spend on a weekend (9 hours total) for one griddle. 

Thanks a lot for your help

Hi Dean,

I'm in the early stages of starting a crepe van/trailer. I have read a lot of your tips and comments to others. Do you have a book that gives further advice on starting up, and if so what's the process of getting a copy?

Regards, Chris

Hi ,

I am also in the initial stages of looking at equipment to get a crepe operation going. Did anyone get a guide on how to start it up? I see many posts about it. Please let me know. Also,is everyone else using a commercial kitchen to prepare the batter. Any advise on that?

This has got to stop!

She is having WAY too much fun!

 

On the other hand, if there's a lot of this going around, you guys may be on to something...

 

And, that's some pretty impressive wrist action there by the crepeista (or whatever the  term for the professional is.)

How do you do to clean your hands if the crepe cart doesn't have a sink?

Moist Towelettes?

Your local health department will have the answer---I believe a sink is mandatory in this area---

[BHello Everyone[/B]
I need tips on making crepes using an electric crepe maker. I would eventually get a propane one, im in the early stages of adding crepes to my menu. I can not make a perfectly round one. I been practicing. I have used the tool that came with the crepe maker as well as a wooden one, however they keep ripping in the middle. I would greatly appreciate any tips on how to keep this from happening.
Thank YOU in advance!
