What is the story behind your business' name?
I thought of serving a 1/2 or smaller panini. My husband said, "You could call that a Bikini Panini." Right then, I knew that would be the name of my truck.
About Bikini Panini
Laura Daab’s career path has been marred by the unexpected. As much is reflected in the Bikini Panini’s origin story. Owning her own business was not new to Daab when she opened this food truck. In fact, she worked in theatrical production out of a company she owned with her husband, Jim, for 20 years. However, the Great Recession meant the company sadly shut its doors, but this setback translated to an opportunity for reinvention. A chance sighting of a truck at an auction inspired the Daabs to revamp their vocational aspirations and dive into the world of professional cooking. They’ve been rolling around the Richmond, VA area ever since pressing Mediterranean and Cote d'Azur-inspired flavors into the sandwiches of your dreams.
Sandwiches here range from paninis as simple as Cuban to as sophisticated as the Riviera (ratatouille with cheese and big, Italian meatballs). Classics like moussaka and paella are also available for those with larger appetites, crafted carefully to five-star dining status for a refined taste no matter where you're eating them. With baked treats and ice cream on the menu, you must save room for dessert. The Sweetie Bikini Panini is simply irresistible, stuffed with nutella, marshmallow, graham cracker, and your choice of strawberry jam or cookie butter. Drool worthy? Absolutely. Find Bikini Panini in Richmond, or have 'em out to cater your next event. You won't regret it.
