When Crepini contacted Design & Processing Resources for a kettle to cook and chill their fillings for their crepes, Firex was specified. The company has been expanding due to a growing market for their product and they need a unit that could cook / chill and keep track of batch information. The Firex Baskett series with the cook / chill option was custom designed for their needs. As a result they were able to cook 300 pounds of eggs, hold them at temp., then cool them down to 50•F in one batch within two hours total time. After the eggs are cooled, the cheeses and other ingredients are added to the eggs, then used to stuff the crepes. Mmmmm Yummmmm.
The Crepini Way – How It’s Done
How it all began…Crepini was born in 2007, and at the time we were making crêpes by hand. One person working with eight crêpe pans was able to produce about 300-350 crêpes per hour. At such a pace we could not possibly meet growing demand for our delicious product, so we quickly recognized a need for automation.
Today…We are more efficient and make better crêpes than ever before! Customized equipment and state-of-the-art technology allows us to make crêpes of superior quality, that are thinner and more uniform than we were ever able to produce by hand.
How is it really done? Evenly cooking the crêpes is key! We start with a creamy, butter-free batter made from all natural ingredients. Our slick, modern crêpe machine smoothly pours the right amount of batter needed for each crêpe onto a hot-plated moving belt. The crêpes are fully cooked and rolled with fillings in seconds, and then IQF flash-frozen for guaranteed lasting freshness. Finally, they are weighed, vacuum-sealed, and packaged instantly. We add different kinds of delicious fillings to the crêpes and our machines are capable of forming them into various shapes and sizes. Our current production rate is 6,000 crêpes per hour!
Naked and filled Crepini crêpes are all natural. No MSG’s! No trans-fats! No GMO’s! No hydrogenated oils! Now that’s the healthy choice!
A variety of irresistibly delicious flavors are made with fresh ingredients that come from U.S. farms. Our sour cherries are from Michigan and our cheeses are from Upstate New York. Whenever possible, we buy ingredients from local farms.
Crepini goes green, all the time. We use packaging made from recycled materials, including trays, boxes, and anything else that carries our crêpes. Our production facility utilizes optimum energy levels and electrical energy whenever possible.
We’ve got the freshest stuff in town!
