Crepe Madame Fire Relief Fund

Originally from Paris, France, Laetitia Verdeaux started Crêpe Madame in San Francisco in June 2012. Crêpe Madame specialized in bringing authentic crêpes to the Bay Area via on-site catering events.

While steadily growing her company and making a name for herself in the competitive catering space, Laetitia has always made the compassionate and fair treatment of her employees a central focus (I should know, I was one of them).

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all future catering events were put on indefinite hiatus in March of this year, but Laetitia was resilient and pivoted to a pop-up to-go operation from a friend's wine bar storefront. Unfortunately, disaster struck again, this time in the form of a five-alarm fire.
On July 28th, 2020 a five-alarm fire started on 14th street next-door to the commercial kitchen (160 14th Street SF) that was the home to all production and operations of Crêpe Madame, and virtually everything was lost. The former employees of Crêpe Madame are devastated and saddened by this loss and have joined together to help Laetitia regain some of the financial losses from losing the business she worked so hard to build. All proceeds will go to rebuilding Crêpe Madame and helping to employ a full staff when conditions allow for catering operations to resume. Any amount you can spare is greatly appreciated.
