MOBO Award winning grime duo Krept & Konan, otherwise known as Casyo Johnson & Karl Wilson, just announced the launch of a new dessert restaurant called “Crepes & Cones”, which is set to open in Croydon on May 12th.

The announcement made last night via Twitter stated “After working on this for over 2 years I’m so proud to announce that me and Konan are opening our restaurant @CrepesAndCones next week saturday may 12th. I hope to see you all there”

Advertising themselves as “not your average dessert spot” in another post on Instagram, the pair spoke about their plans to stock a full-range of halal-friendly food items in their new Croydon location.

“We do crepes, waffles, grilled food, chicken, burgers, ribs, hot dogs to name a few…. We do cocktails, mocktails, slushes, milkshakes, everything” “We even have vegan options and ice cream and even a private room to hire.”

A tweet from 2014 which was Retweeted by Krept shows that the idea to create Crepes & Cones has been in the works for quite some time.

In the comments he continued to say that “When i tweeted this i swear i had no idea where to start or how to go about this. I rap, how am i gonna open a restaurant. Where do i start etc… 4 years later it came to life. And somehow we made it happen”

In terms of working on the project, it appears that Krept & Konan have not shied away from the hard work. Going on to say “during the process (of launching the store) I even became a builder for a bit”

In order to promote the launch new store the pair have put together a promotional music video featuring appearances from the likes of popular artists such as Big Narstie, Mo Stacks and J Hus.

It is interesting to note that with just one week to go until the big day, Crepes & Cones is still looking for staff, and just yesterday posted information on how local residents can apply on Snapchat.

Currently, the website for Crepes & Cones (http://crepesandcones.com/) remains unreleased as a holding page. However, you can follow the progress of Krept & Konan’s new venture, Crepe’s & Cones, via Twitter @crepesandcones.

In other musical pursuits, Krept & Konan continue to see success with upcoming plans to release 2 new music videos as well as confirming their largest ever headline show at the Alexandra Palace on October 25th.
