We had the good fortune of connecting with Merlin Heras and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Merlin, do you have some perspective or insight you can share with us on the question of when someone should give up versus when they should keep going?
Giving up has never been an option. Has it crossed my mind? Definitely, once or twice. I know that is no the path to success, however. We are a Latina LGBT owned business who have faced many obstacles in the journey. From starting in moms kitchen to importing a tiny food trailer from another contiene because that was what we could afford at the moment. We look forward to one day serving the entire valley, country and world the most amazing crepes made with love. They are a combination of French & Japanese style Crepes with a touch of Mexican.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
We are a food trailer who serves amazing desserts. French & Japanese style crepes with a touch of Mexican. Bubble waffles & milkshakes.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Downtown Phx
