Pop-Up Party! Vendor Spotlight - Hail Snail!

As you may have heard by now, Vegan Iron Chef is hosting our all-new Pop-Up Party! event on June 22nd at the Lagunitas Community Room. Ten (or so!) of Portland’s hottest vegan pop-ups will all be in one location at the very same time, and it is sure to be a culinary smash!

Between now and June 22nd, we will be introducing each of the vendors with an exclusive Q&A right here, on our VIC blog!

Our first vendor spotlight is Hail Snail, a queer, family-owned, vibrant & totally vegan cinnamon roll cart. Here is what Jaq & Karly of Hail Snail have to say:

What’s the story with your pop-up/business? What inspired you?

We wanted to create an innovative & fun way for people to experience a classic dessert while still holding true to our values (100% vegan, fair trade chocolate & natural colors). We believe the culinary journey is best explored when you've designed it to your personal taste!


Where do you see this going? What’s the dream?

We are working towards a food cart in the near future!

Where do you like to go out to eat in the Portland area these days?

Lately, our favorites are DC Veg and Virtuous Pie but we also love Los Gorditos and Wolf & Bears!

So, what are you planning to make for June 22nd’s “Pop-Up Party!” crowd?!

Cinnamon rolls with gluten free options & lots of fun toppings!

We’re stoked!! See what these two are up to, including upcoming events around Portland and exciting new rolls, by following them on social media: Instagram: @ hailsnailpdx and FB/hailsnailpdx
