C’est Si Bon Bids Adieu to Bexley
After four years of business in Bexley, C’est Si Bon has permanently closed, as of Sept. 30.
“We had support from the community, but it was kind of limited,” says co-owner Billy Strickland. “We didn’t go out of business, just made the decision to close.”
The crêperie first started in 2011 in Canal Winchester, moving to 2258 E. Main St. in Bexley in 2014. Serving up breakfast, lunch and dinner, C’est Si Bon offered a variety of sweet and savory crepes with fillings like cajun chicken, smoked salmon, lavender and lemon, and s’mores. They served a variety of coffee beverages as well.
Strickland says that while C’est Si Bon has come to an end, they may start on a new project soon, sans crepes.
“We are looking as a family for another location right now to do another business,” she says. “I’d love to have some type of coffee house, so whatever it is, the primary focal point would be coffee. And I am a baker so we may do some baked goods.”
Strickland says they’d like to move into a more urban setting and will likely advance the plan within the next six months.
“I loved every opportunity. For me, it was never about the money, but the passion and the opportunity,” Strickland says. “We’ve had some crazy wonderful experiences with C’est Si Bon, and it goes beyond making crepes for me — I’m a big old mushy gushy lady. People enjoyed the atmosphere, it was welcoming and loving. So it’s bittersweet for me.”
Strickland says the C’est Si Bon Facebook page will remain active, so that followers can keep up with their next business steps, which may include a few popups.
