My name is Amanda, I started The Village Perk in May of 2022.
This business plan has been in the works since 2018 when I first opened my small bakery out of a commissary kitchen in my hometown. The concept shifted from selling my favorite baked goods to coffee and cannoli after my first year in business.
With a goal of opening a brick-and-mortar bakery, I picked up the trailer and hit the ground running serving espresso. In this first year I've gotten the opportunity network with other small businesses, serve at large corporations and build connections within the community.
We have visited events across Washington state and have started opening booking to Oregon and Nevada for the 2023 season as expansion continues. We have a growing team of baristas and big plans in the new year as we work toward our dream of opening a cozy little coffee house.
Business was busier than expected in the first year so we're quickly working to open a couple more trailers. Our newest addition is coming summer of 2023. With plans for a third shortly after that.
Our newest addition to the business is wedding catering. We're offering this for the 2023 wedding season.
