The Scoop: One truck hits the streets, another finds a permanent home

April 26th 12:04pm, 2012

The Sweet Divine truck rolled onto the streets of St. Louis a little more than a year ago, serving cupcakes, muffins, cake pops, whoopee pies and more to sweet-toothed St. Louisans. Now, owner Jenna Siebert has found a permanent truck stop for her mobile sweets biz and will be opening a brick-and-mortar shop within a matter of weeks.

The Sweet Divine will make its stationery home at 4521 S. Kingshighway Blvd., at the corner of Devonshire Avenue. The space will serve as the commissary kitchen for the food truck operation, but there will also be a bakery case in front to serve walk-in patrons looking to nibble on a pastry or cake by the slice or even grab a whole cake to go. Though there won’t be sit-down dining space, Siebert will offer breakfast sandwiches and croissants for the morning crowd, plus coffee to wash it all down.

Siebert is hoping to unlock doors by May 15. “We have the potential to open up very quickly because everything was already set up,” she noted, explaining that the space was previously occupied by a bakery business. “We just have to dress up the front of the store.”

In related truckie news, The Summer Truck will soon be joining the area’s ever-growing fleet of mobile eateries. Co-owner Kenda Morado told The Scoop that The Summer Truck will feature prepared dishes made with fresh, locally raised produce and meats and that the truck will only operate during warm-weather months. Morado and her business partners, Cha Cha Chow food truck operators Candice Davis and Linda Jones, are working with a farm in Moscow Mills, Mo., to grow produce specifically for the truck.

The menu will tout salads and sandwiches that change with the growing season. “When tomatoes come in, we’ll have BLTs, bread salad, that kind of thing,” noted Morado. The Summer Truck expects to hit the streets in May. To track the status of the truck, visit its Facebook page or follow it on Twitter @SummerTruck.
