Vegan on Kickstarter

Online dessert store Miss Vegan has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to become a food truck.

Miss Vegan, an online dessert store, has launched a campaign on Kickstarter, the private funding platform. Most popular for its cupcakes and cookies, Miss Vegan has been shipping a variety of sweet treats for the past two years. Meghan Bloadsield, the store owner, now wants to expand her business to include a food truck. The truck would be based in Providence, RI, and serve up diner-style foods such as steak-and-cheese sandwiches, clam cakes, and chowder. “We, at Miss Vegan, believe that food is more than just a belly filler. Food is a way to bring a community together and put smiles on people’s faces,” the campaign site states.
