Seabirds Truck founder Stephanie Morgan acknowledges she has been AWOL lately, but for good reason. She’s been cooking up a few deals to expand her popular vegan truck business.
The latest coup: Seabirds is hosting a three-day pop-up event at Whole Foods Market in Newport Beach.
Morgan is taking over the kitchen at the store’s Back Bay Tavern restaurant Dec. 6-8. The vegan menu will be available 11 a.m.- 10 p.m.
“I’m excited to be in a kitchen and not on wheels,” Morgan said.
In addition to serving signature dishes like her critically reviewed avocado tacos, Morgan said the pop-up menu will offer complicated dishes that can’t be done on the truck, such as butternut squash enchiladas and a persimmon roasted beet carpaccio.
The pop-up will act as a dry run for Morgan, who has plans to open a brick and mortar restaurant in Orange County. No deals have been finalized, but she’s hoping to launch a taco stand in Santa Ana. A larger restaurant is also in the works.
“We’d love to be part of downtown Santa Ana,” she said.
Morgan is also getting into the wholesale market.
She’s selling vegetarian wraps and burritos to San Diego State’s Aztec Market, a student-run convenience store on campus. Morgan said the market contacted them after tasting her food. “We’d love to get with more schools,” she said. “So many kids want healthier options.
