Mighty Missouri Coffee purchased a fat-tire tricycle last year, mounting an insulated coffee server on the back.
The trike made its debut at the Bismarck-Mandan Triathlon.
“It allows us to serve hot coffee in a cool way,” owner Brian Jackson said.
But what he really wanted was to be able to offer a full menu of espresso drinks for special events.
“Espresso machines are not naturally portable,” Jackson said, but the company managed to find and purchase a cart with a mobile plumbing system.
Mighty Missouri will now be serving everything from americanos to cappuccinos at area parties and events. Customers can request the cart for private gatherings, too, such as graduations and weddings.
“So you can hire us to basically serve your guests coffee,” Jackson said.
You have free articles remaining.
For those interested, the espresso cart will be out at BisMarket farmers market from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays at Kiwanis Park/Municipal Ballpark, over the next couple weeks.
Mall gets program for walkers
Edgewood Senior Living recently partnered with Kirkwood Mall to offer supplemental programming for the loyal group of mall walkers who frequent the property.
There will be mile markers installed in the mall — one lap is three-quarters of a mile — and monthly community activities called “Walkin’ Wednesdays.”
“We are committed to providing not only the residents of our four local facilities with opportunities that encourage healthy, independent and happy lives, but also the entire community of Bismarck-Mandan,” Gwen Beckler, Mandan Edgewood marketing director, said in a statement.
With extreme weather a factor, Jennifer Wilson, Kirkwood's general manager, said mall walking has been a huge attraction for the center for decades.
"We love our mall-walking community and encourage more people to take advantage of our climate-controlled environment to assist with their health and wellness goals. We know the partnership with Edgewood along with their programming will help to grow awareness for Kirkwood as a community resource not only as a source for retail and entertainment, but also for community wellness,” she said.
Edgewood’s Walkin’ Wednesdays will be at 8:30 a.m. the fourth Wednesday of each month. Each will cover a different topic and offer refreshments and fellowship. More information is available at shopkirkwoodmall.com/connect or at facebook.com/KirkwoodMall
The mall opens doors for walkers 7 a.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. Sunday.
