After moving to Turlock from New Zealand three years ago, the Hermiz family was looking to find a way to establish themselves in their new country they now call home. Over the years, the way to do that became clear: opening The Creperie.
“Our other family members have crepe restaurants on the east coast and since there is a shortage of crepe shops in the area, we thought we would bring something different to Turlock,” said daughter Manwella Hermiz.
Hermiz said that her parents Akheqir and Nora Hermiz plan to offer an assortment of breakfast crepes using ingredients such as ham, eggs, cheese, tomatoes, onions, bacon, cream cheese, cinnamon and apple butter; Belgian chocolate and Nutella crepes with the option to add strawberries, bananas and other fresh fruit; savory crepes including chicken crepes and salmon crepes; and ice cream crepes with flavors ranging from vanilla, strawberry and chocolate.
“The wonderful thing about crepes is that they are for people of all ages,” said Akheqir Hermiz. “All ages love to eat them and they are so simple.”
“You can eat them in the morning, afternoon or for dinner—whenever you like,” added Nora Hermiz.
The Creperie’s menu won’t stop with just crepes, according to the Hermiz family, who said that they will also be offering light meal options, including chicken wraps, veggie wraps and gyros, as well as homemade soups and salads.
“Having it family owned means that it is very special to us and we want to show people that we care by giving them something that most people drive to San Francisco or other cities to get. Now they can get it right in their hometown,” said Manwella Hermiz. “Everything will be made with care and quality, especially coming from my dad. He puts his heart into his work.”
Hermiz said that her family hopes to open The Creperie within the next week or two with a soft opening for family and friends tentatively scheduled for March 15. The crepe shop will open to the public the following day.
“We’re just excited and happy,” said Hermiz. “We are hoping to offer something special to Turlock and we hope everyone picks it up and gets accustomed to it because it is different.”
