Sucré brings Pupelato to stores benefitting the LA SPCA + Launches New Winter Menu on November 3rd!

This November Sucré New Orleans & Salon Restaurant by Sucré are partnering with the Louisiana SPCA! 

As part of the partnership, Pastry Chef Signe Seaborg and Executive Chef Tariq Hanna wanted to do something special just for the pups. Together they took their love for dogs & love for gelato inspiring them to create Pupelato, the ultimate gelato flavor for our furry friends: Bacon & Peanut Butter.

Pupelato is 100% dog-friendly AND human-friendly, so you and your companion can enjoy a scoop together! Scoops will be $3 or you can take a pint home for your pups for $12! A portion of Pupelato sales will be donated to the LA SPCA throughout November!

Bacon and Peanut Butter not your style? You can also contribute by stocking up on Sucré Cupcakes, as a portion of cupcake sales will also be donated to the LA SPCA.

We love dogs so much over here at Sucré we’re even getting merch in all three Sucré Stores. Yes you heard correctly, you will soon be able to sport a Sucré Frenchie + Macaron Shirt. Stay tuned for the release date; they will be available for purchase very soon! A portion of the proceeds will benefit the LA SPCA.

She was treated locally at Children’s Hospital and now lives in Kenner, LA with her parents Cabrina and Kevin and little sister Kenzie. Kay is shy at first but has a smile that can light up the room and dreams of being a fashion designer! A percentage of sales from the Lakeside location during the event and throughout the entire day will be donated back to the LLS in order to help little superheroes like Kay overcome cancer!
