Entrepreneur starts business amid pandemic

By November 11, 2020 No Comments

2020 has caused many businesses to change the way they do business.

For food businesses around Orlando, many now offer walk up windows for to-go orders. 

Some have reserved parking spaces in front to pick up food.

There are even robots that can deliver food, but those aren’t in Florida 

Locally, you can get plant-based cookies delivered by Kelly-Anne Salazar, owner of Pop Vegan Baking.

“I’m pretty much a one woman circus. I bake everything and then I deliver them straight to the door,” Salazar said.

The 33-year-old former Disney employee was furloughed back in March and later laid off. 

She said during the pandemic she “just needed to do something, basically, so that’s when I started baking.”

With no experience in baking vegan goods, it helped that she had a lot of time on her hands. 

Her business is based from Facebook and Instagram. Between the pandemic and election stress, business is booming.

“So in that way, I think it’s been good for my business, just to be able to have that contactless delivery for you and then everything is online. I’m an online bakery. I don’t have that storefront and that rent.”

The next step for Salazar is to continue delivering, and possibly expanding. 

For now, if you live in Orlando, you can order here: popVeganbaking.com
