FORT LEE, N.J — Fort Lee welcomed crêpe franchise T-Swirl Crêpe into the community Monday afternoon with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The store replaces Malaysian restaurant "House Of Malaysia" at 242 Main Street. Franchise owner David Weng said he changed his restaurant into a crêpe shop to appeal to a younger crowd.

"I want my kids to want to come see me at work," Weng, 50, told Daily Voice. "This is a place where young people will want to come grab a bite with their friends and hang out."

The ribbon-cutting ceremony featured a "lion dance" by students from the Chinese Community Center in Glen Rock.

"It is a Chinese custom that is supposed to scare away the bad spirits and bring good luck," said Weng. "Hopefully it will bring us lots of success."

T-Swirl Crêpes started in Flushing, Queens in 2014. Fort Lee marks the first New Jersey location for the franchise and the seventh location overall.

The menu offers a variety of sweet and savory options as well as milkshakes and coffee.

T-Swirl Crêpes is attached to "Q-Tea Premium Tea House," a tea franchise Weng bought into back in 2013.
