PDX Vegan Food Cart Kickstarter

Two aspiring entrepreneurs in Oregon seek funds to make their bike-towed vegan food cart a reality.


With the help of donations collected through Kickstarter, Rocks and Cicada Vohzayda seek to make their vegan food cart concept, Tandem Treats!, a reality. The Vohzaydas are Portland-based animal-welfare and environmental activists who hope to bring vegan street food to the masses via tandem bike—thus the project’s moniker. The pair hopes to collect $2,000 by March 7 to purchase special tires, a trailer, and licenses for the cart, which will serve items such as buffalo tofu-ranch pizza, sushi wraps, hot dogs, nachos, kombucha, and more. In addition to being fueled by pedal power, the cart will have a minimal environmental impact by exclusively using organic, locally sourced ingredients.
