Melange Creperie is yet another local organization successfully having funded a campaign via online site, Kickstarter. (A documentary featuring Montrose nightclub Numbers recently reached their Kickstarter goal of $40,000 last week.) Melange’s campaign raised $52,548 in approximately one month, which will help the beloved business transition from a humble crepe stand into a full-fledged brick-and-mortar location.  Formerly serving in front of 403 Westheimer, owner Sean Carroll decided it was time to “take things to the next level” when their lease was up.

The ultimate goal was to raise $100,000 to keep Melange in Montrose, which Carroll describes as the “heart of Houston culture” and the “Left Bank” of the city. No word on whether the fundraising efforts will continue to ensure Melange Creperie’s permanent home will be in their original neighborhood.
