Dessert Pop-up Morgan St. Theater is going mobile with a roving ice cream social serving seasonally-inspired ice cream desserts.
PORTLAND, Ore. – April 23, 2015 – Jared Goodman of Morgan St Theater launches a kickstarter campaign to go beyond the seated pop-up experience, and bring its unique and delicious ice cream desserts to the streets of Portland. From ice cream bon bons to sundaes, ice cream sandwiches to scoops, the Pedal Parlor is a roving ice cream social serving seasonally-inspired ice cream desserts. Our ice cream is truly unique because no pre-made base is used, rather each flavor is built upon a recipe made to highlight a desired flavor and texture. All ice creams and toppings are made from scratch using high quality ingredients sourced from local farms, artisans and food purveyors.
The Pedal Parlor will provide the infrastructure and mobility to cater large public events, as well as
weddings or other milestone celebrations. The funding requested will purchase a customized and branded ice cream tricycle plus a small commercial ice cream machine. Throughout the summer the Pedal Parlor will be parked at local business districts in North and Northeast neighborhoods, as well as Sunday
Parkways and other street fairs across Portland.
Morgan St. Theater will continue to host monthly dessert pop-ups throughout the summer. Monthly menus are inspired by a creative theme and seasonal flavors and served up with stories. Jared Goodman, Morgan St. Theater’s creator, is a self-taught ice cream aficionado who makes all the desserts from scratch, sourcing from local farmers whenever possible.
