Josh Pollack, master bagel maker and owner at Rosenberg's Bagels & Delicatessen, has pretzels on his mind. His popular Five Points deli will launch a mobile side-business in July: fresh pretzels sold out of a brand new electric tuk tuk. The pretzel mobile does not have a clear planned location but Pollack sees it around the Ballpark, close to other sports events, and perhaps inside the Convention Center for pretzel-friendly festivals like the Great American Beer Festival. This coming winter, Pollack will open the Rolling Pin, a European-style bakery next door to his bagel shop.
Tuk tuks may well be the next big thing in Denver. Newly brought to the Mile High City by ETuk USA, the three wheeled electric vehicles are everything that's good about a pedi-cab, a scooter, and a golf cart combined into a slim, covered, and quick passenger vehicle. The company, which builds them locally, can customize these to house a small food business.
Back in March, Boulder-born Bhakti Chai welcomed Ginger to its family. Ginger is the company's tuk tuk, which has been roaming the country from Philadelphia to New Orleans and Austin to Miami spreading the gospel of chai.
