Combining decadent desserts, inspired eats, crafty cocktails and vintage vibes for your elevated experience.

 

What is Love Pop?

 

Three Servings of Food Trucks

(including a very cool trailer)

Two Helpings of Eats

(with dessert, of course)

One Cocktail

(mixed, shaken or stirred and served from the coolest of bar trucks)

Don’t forget the Garnish

(vintage inspired décor with a whole bunch of whimspirations)

Combined we are the perfect marriage of catering, cakes, cocktails and food trucks. Mix in some vintage vibe, awesome decor and a way-cool atmosphere for a one-of-a-kind experience in the spirit of a “Pop Up” Event. Our desserts, cakes and treats are creative, and oh so whimsical. Our eats are impressive, and very inspired. Our Trucks and Trailer are old. Yes, they’re vintage, fully restored and very cool.  The unique addition to your event calling for food trucks. Our harvest-tables were handcrafted by us for you.  Built of Colorado Beetle Kill Pine and Patina Metal, these tables highlight our impressive and inviting décor. This same wood is specially crafted to fill our Food Trailer and Bar Truck bringing the same look and feel with our entire experience and to your entire event. Our service staff’s one-of-a-kind bib aprons of leather and waxed canvas are crafted just for Love Pop.  They harken back to the days of the real craftsman that built this country and inspire the craft we bring to our offerings. Plenty of truly unique, special and vintage touches create Love Pop!

Dickie

A vintage camper that spent its life in the backcountry, now looking to spend its time in the limelight, Dickie is a camper reborn as a charming and inviting home from which to serve our whimsical treats, and of course any of our amazingly inspired eats.  Named after Barkley’s late father, Dickie pays homage to Barkley’s dad and his love of the great outdoors.  Always looking for his next adventure, of course with his trailer in tow, Barkley’s dad was an avid backpacker and a lifetime REI employee.  Dickie still captures this sense of adventure looking for a tow to your next event.  With a complete ground-up restoration, Dickie is fully equipped with power, commercial refrigeration, the perfect lighting and unique serving windows.  Add to that some one-of-a-kind touches like a barndoor and accents reminiscent of a barn located off the beaten path, Dickie is the perfect companion for an event looking to add a rustic yet refined touch.

A 1966 International Harvester dually.  A flatbed with rustic wood, and the look and feel reminiscent of the workhorse vehicle on your grandparent’s farm, Harvie is our workhorse and the “centerpiece” of our vintage fleet.  And, sure to be the centerpiece of your next event.  An open flatbed awaiting for your idea.  Harvie is the perfect “stage” for your next event.  A stage for the band?  Play on!  A grill and BBQ station?  Yes please, with seconds!  The platform for an “I Do”?  Let’s do it!  A Hayride?  Hey to that!  A promo vehicle for your company’s big announcement?  Everyone will surely listen!  A DJ Booth?  An incredible turn for the turntables!  Your idea?

Ralphie

A vintage postal truck turned ice cream truck turned one-of-a-kind bar truck.  The perfect setup for the beverage service of Love Pop, yet may just show up with the delivery of your custom cake.  Named after Jeff’s late father, Ralphie is the inspiration from a dad that always finished his day on a “sweet-note” and that of an ice cream treat.  From his days as a kid, dad would jokingly tell of his favorite chocolate ice cream treat costing just a nickel, and a “Milk Nickel” he requested at the end of every dinnertime meal.   Reborn from a complete frame-off restoration, our Ralphie truck serves as our delivery vehicle by day, reserving the evening and nights for your bar service.  Complete with a custom and rustic bar (designed and built by our creative genius proprietor Jeff), full beverage and alcohol services, glassware, ice and all the serviceware, Ralphie is one special bar looking for an invite to your big event.
