About Us

Franco Welsh Ltd

Creperie & Vegetarian Catering | Event Catering | Vegetarian Weddings

Franco Welsh Ltd has come such a long way since its humble beginnings in London in 2008. From a little market stall to dominating the crepe making business market place in the UK, here is a brief summary of our journey so far.

Created in 2008, La Creperie de Sophie was our first company & trading name. It was set up following its French founder Loic Moinon’s main passions for food and business. Today (nearly 7 years later already!), we operate from Llantwit Major, South Wales, and the company operates a small fleet of vehicles ready to come to you. We employ up to 6 chef crepiers in the summer months and still attend major events throughout the UK.

In 2013, a new company was born and 2 brands created within it: ‘The Welsh Creperie Co.‘and ‘The Veggie Platter Co.‘ offering both specialist crepes and absolutely unique vegetarian cuisine. That year Pancake World Ltd (our sis’ company) was also incorporated, looking after the manufacture and worldwide distribution of batter mixes and creperie equipment.

Since 2008, we’ve been catering at all sorts of events throughout Wales and England, produced a range of fresh crepes, crepe mixes, and buckwheat galette mixes for retailers to sell. in 2010 we also developed a Franchise model for individuals to start their own Creperie businesses, as well as we assisted food outlets in their creperie setup. Our journey was complete with the addition of a fixed outlet in Cardiff in June 2012, successfully sold in December 2013.

Nowadays, Loic Moinon spends the majority of his time dealing his the current affairs of Pancake World Ltd whilst developing other web based businesses. But this would never have been possible without the help of the thousands of customers supporting us since the beginning. So to all of them, to all of you, a warm thank you.
