Sucré ‘Never Defined By One Individual,’ CEO Says After Exec Chef Resigns

"Sucre's success, creativity, and efforts are credited to each and every one who has worked for Sucre over the past 12 years."

A day after it was reported that the executive chef of Sucré resigned from the sweet shop he started, CEO Y. Hans Baumann issued a statement Friday to the shop’s employees and media outlets about the move.

UPDATE: Sucré to close its doors after 13 years

Sucré was opened by restaurateur Joel Dondis with pastry chef Tariq Hanna in 2007. It was the first dessert-only shop in New Orleans. What started on Magazine Street swiftly (and sweetly) spread to the French Quarter and Metairie.

Baumann announced in a statement Friday that Hanna resigned on Aug. 14. And while the team is appreciative of Hanna’s artistic contributions to Sucré over the past 12 years, that employees should take comfort in knowing that not “one” person can define the saccharine success.

“…Sucre has never been defined by one individual,” Baumann said. “Sucre’s success, creativity, and efforts are credited to each and every one who has worked for Sucre over the past 12 years.”

“As CEO of Sucre, I will continue to promote suggestions, input, and ideas from all employees who wish to contribute to the continued success of Sucre as a creative collaboration. In addition, I will continue to promote a professional and respectful culture as we progress in raising the bar in providing fine, elegant, delicious desserts, cakes, gelatos and confections for the city of New Orleans and our customers across the United States.”

I’m the Local Market Manager for Very Local New Orleans. I’ve lived in New Orleans since 2001 and been living my best life in this rad place since that year.
I have 10 years of broadcast journalism and digital media experience. Before Very Local New Orleans, I worked for WDSU-TV – producing, product developing, digital media managing– I’ve done it all. I’ve seen first-hand the trials we’ve suffered in this city and the celebrations we’ve enjoyed. I love New Orleans. It’s home.
I’m going to work my hardest to bring you the content and experiences you care about to live your best life here in one of the best cities on the planet.
I love finding things to do here – concerts, food, drinks, nerding out, etc. And I love sharing those things with others.
Contact me via email. Gimme a shout on social. If you see something you think we should know about, hit me up. If you see something that needs fixing on the site, ditto.
