WAUKESHA —The plan for a food truck came about quickly for Sweet Perfections Bake Shoppe owners Ken and Peggy Heil, but they have found quick success.

Ken Heil said the Frostin’ the Streets with Perfection truck was brought to a big event at The Blind Horse in Kohler a couple of weeks ago and has been requested back for the 30th of this month.

“It’s pretty exciting stuff ... (we have received) calls for weddings and birthdays. It’s starting to explode,” Heil said.

Frostin’ the Streets currently stocks items already for sale at the retail location for Sweet Perfections, 1501 Paramount Drive, Suite C, Waukesha, but it will soon have exclusive items.

“We are bringing sweets to the streets,” Heil said.

In addition to private events, Heil said he is hoping to have the truck at public events around Waukesha in the future.

“It came to be very quickly for us,” he said. “I put it together very quickly based on requests from customers and vendors.”

Sweet Perfections is also expanding its offerings by adding a patio in front that will contain several tables, which will accommodate about six to eight people once completed.

“We wanted to accomplish a couple of things: one, give our customers another option for sitting outside and enjoying a pastry and a cup of coffee or tea while the weather is prevailing; and let our drive-by customers know we are a retail location,” Heil said.

The business continues to grow. It has 12 employees and is looking for number 13, who must be a special cake artist.
