Sweet Tooth Crepes and Shakes, a dessert destination in Springboro, is closing the doors to its storefront but plans to continue catering events, according to a post on the establishment’s Facebook page.

“After long and thoughtful consideration, we have decided to close the doors to our storefront here in Springboro,” the post said. “We still have plans to keep the Sweet Tooth brand by catering your special events. Please inquire about this.”

Sweet Tooth opened at 75 N. Main St. in Springboro in November 2021.

Rana Shalash, founder and co-owner of Sweet Tooth, told when she opened that owning a one-stop-shop for kindred sweet tooth-ers like herself had been a longtime dream.

The shop served gelato, crepes, waffles on a stick, Boba tea, milkshakes and more.

According to the post, the space will be converted into a new Mediterranean-style restaurant.

“We want to thank the people of Springboro for the beautiful memories, and we hope you’ll reach out to us for any event you have planned,” the post said.

When the business announced the closing Monday night on Facebook, several customers noted they were sad to see the shop go but thanked the owners for providing a special place.

“Thank you! We had a blast visiting your store,” Tim Morningstar wrote. “My kids have told everyone from out of town about you. Good luck on whatever comes next for you both.”

“Sweet Tooth Springboro your concept, décor, and service really were/are unmatched,” Britt Morgan added. “Thank you for all of the sweet treats, smiles, and community you brought — so very sad to see you lose a storefront, but SO VERY excited to see where the new concept will go!!!”

“We are so sad to see you go! It was always such a treat for my kids! Always their choice for any reward! We’ll miss you,” Ashley Baughman said.
