Last August, we featured Frosene Sacco and her delicious Greek pastries sold from a pedal-powered vending cart.
Sacco informs us that since she launched her business, Bikelava, word-of-mouth about the delicious pastries traveled quickly and she’s got some exciting changes coming in 2013.
Until the weather picks up again, she has been keeping busy with events and special orders.
Sacco said she will be obtaining a Mobile Vending Permit this month, which will allow her to sell her pastries at more locations throughout the city.
“It’s issued by calendar year, and since we started later in the season, we decided to wait to get it with a full year’s worth of operational time,” she said, adding that Vanessa Resler and Will Lemke, the couple behind the previously featured bike business, Six Strawberries, were very helpful in obtaining the permit.
“We plan to vend in Seattle more during the weekdays, a few other farmers markets and of course at special events,” said Sacco.
Sacco also revealed a new product that she will be rolling out this year: Baklava Sundaes!
“We will be sourcing a local ice creamery and making a topping with our authentic Greek Baklava! YUUUUMMM!,” she said.
