Learn About Sweet Troo Vi
Sweet Troo Vi is the project of wives and business partners, Rebekkah (she/her) and Bobbi Jo (she/her) Lamar Brunson. When Rebekkah was playing basketball overseas, she had her first taste of Belgian liege waffles. Liege waffles (named after a town in eastern Belgium) are made with a bread dough-like batter that contains chunks of pearl sugar, which caramelize and form a crispy, crunchy, golden coating. The comforting flavors of these treats soothed Rebekkah’s homesick spirit and sparked her desire to create a way to use food as a vessel to bring this warmth and comfort to her community back home.
Help Grow Inclusive, Small-Scale, Local Businesses
Sweet Troo Vi’s mission is “Eat Deliciously. Love Freely.” It began as a food truck that served delicious gourmet liege waffles. However with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, they had to switch gears. With flavors inspired by their decadent waffles, Sweet Troo Vi pivoted to vegan cookies. Care for community drives the Sweet Troo Vi mission, with the “Troo” in the name meaning “truth,” and also “to realize your optimal opportunities.” For the Lamar Brunsons, this means hiring at-risk people, partnering with other local inclusive businesses, and donating to youth organizations and the houseless community.
