In 1999, Sticky Fingers was born in Doron Petersan’s kitchen via the original trifecta: the Little Devil, the, Cowvin, and the Sticky Bun. Friends and family lined up for miles to partake in the taste-tests and after the ‘yums’ outweighed the ‘mehs’, she moved on to a tiny little basement store front tucked away in the heart of DC.
Meanwhile, Kirsten Rosenberg got her hands on these rumored treats and couldn’t resist the urge to join the fight to bestow tasty vegan temptations on the masses. The two built an empire that would boast many accolades and awards. With television appearances, landslide contest winnings, a chain of shops in Seoul, South Korea, countless news interviews, and expanding the menu to include a café, their mission was a success.
