The Hipstir Wagon

We are a food trailer with a permanent location as well as the ability to go to special events in the area. The Hipstir Wagon roots are a bakery – making donuts, cinnamon rolls, and good coffee. Our menu has expanded already to include several egg-based breakfast items and lunch sandwiches. The list of pastries we can prepare has also expanded to fruit turnovers, crescent rolls, apple fritters (with a gluten-free version), and fruit and cheese-filled brioche loaves. All of our pastries and other items are made from scratch and baked or fried in the trailer.

Working with the SBDC

The East Colorado SBDC has been very supportive of us along the entire process of thinking about starting a business to planning a business to finding a place for a business to putting all the pieces together and actually getting started. The continuing support that we receive from Troy and Raejean is much appreciated as we maneuver through our first year of being in business.

“Best donuts in the world”

As we are now in our fourth month of business, we are seeing slow and steady growth. More locals are coming to us regularly and we’re getting big growth in the number of wind farm workers coming for our excellent breakfast options. We’re also seeing more highway traffic from those passing through town seeking a non-fast food option. Many visitors comment on the cuteness of our trailer and how it caught their eye as they were driving past. Even more importantly to us, we are hearing things like, “My kids thought those were the best donuts they’ve ever had,” or, “Your donuts are so good! How can all these people just continue to drive by a place that is making the best donuts in the world?”
