Cupcake Royale was founded in 2003 as Seattle’s first cupcake bakery and café. In fact, Cupcake Royale is the nation’s first cupcake bakery to open outside of NYC! So you can imagine that many of their friends and neighbors didn’t know quite what to expect.
Turns out, their hunch was right, and their delicious, made-from-scratch-daily cupcakes were an instant hit. Most folks who came in had never had a scratch baked cake (Betty Crocker doesn’t count!) or a buttercream frosting made using only real and premium ingredients (like sweet local butter and dark Belgium chocolate).
The best part of Cupcake Royale is that their cupcakes are paired with delicious artisan espresso under the house brand of Verite Coffee. They’re Seattleites – milk alone just won’t cut it here! From day one, they were dedicated to the notion that a good business gives back to the community that supports them – it’s the virtuous circle of life.
They also believe in creating a sustainable and viable local economy. They partner with Washington farmers and producers to bring you the best their neighbors have to offer, because they believe that buying local is vital to building a strong community (and it tastes a lot better).
Their flour comes from a handful of wheat farmers in Eastern Washington who mill it especially for their needs. Their dairy is local and growth hormone free.
Their eggs are cage-free organic. Even their sweet pink boxes are printed locally with soy-based inks and are compostable.
Feed The World Foundation
Feed The World Foundation has established a great team of local farmers, agro engineers, the country’s largest cocoa producer, the Bolivian government, and they are now ready to move forward. What they need is an investor/partner.
They are currently in NYC.. .

Using only the highest quality ingredients, hours of smoking it to perfection, handcrafting their award winning sauce, and providing the best customer service…that is their philosophy here at Pinky’s Kitchen. Pinky’s Kitchen was founded in November 2011 by Australian born chef and entrepreneur Andrew Bray.
Pinky’s acknowledges the personal nature of BBQ and people’s strong allegiances to the regional styles of BBQ they grew up with. What is comfort food for one man can be adventurous eating to the next.
Seattle being a diverse city of transplants Pinky’s draws upon what it considers to be the best methods and techniques of slow smoking its dry rubbed meats using locally sourced Applewood which provides a distinctly Pacific Northwest flavor. Bray has developed a line of unique BBQ sauces most using smoked onions and garlic as a base and which represent the major American states of BBQ.
All their sides are scratch made using quality ingredients and modernized versions of the classics. Specialty meats can be smoked at request and essentially all sorts of surprises can pop up as specials on the menu as Pinky’s follows the simple rules of “if it tastes good it is good” and refuses to remain bound by the confines of any single tradition..
