Hi I'm Danica,
Thanks for stopping by!
I’ve been an entrepreneur since I could remember, I joke that I’ve been in business since 2nd grade when my sister and I would sell pencils and erasers out of our desk and popsicles after school.
In 2012 after being part of a big company lay off where I was a buyer; I decided to take a leap into something I could pour my time and passion into without it feeling like “work”. I knew there was something out there for me, I just didn’t know what it would be, so I prayed about it.

Tricycle Pizza's story...
Weeks later, believe it or not; I was inspired by our local farmers market to jump in and get involved in our local region. I saw the need for good pizza; in a matter of days I decided that pizza would become my specialty, so I got to work.
Here’s a funny story that was not as funny then, but it was surely humbling and did set the tone for the hard work and resilience required to run the business I envisioned. Within a couple of months of deciding to pursue a pizza business, I acquired my first mobile wood-fired oven. It was used, I found it on e-bay and negotiated a crazy good deal on it; it was just the exact model and color I wanted but thousands of dollars less. It arrived and when I saw it in my mom’s driveway (my driveway was too steep) I realized; what did
I get myself into?
This thing is enormous!
I called my uncles, cousins, and neighbors to come over to have pizza because I was starting
a pizza business! (Big mistake) Well, you see; you can’t just press the power button on a wood fired oven. My mom and I tried our best to follow you tube videos to try to fire up this
massive oven, but we had no luck. The highest temperature we achieved that evening
was 125 degrees! (1,000 degrees was our goal) Very bummed (and a tiny bit frustrated),
I had to take the pizzas into my mom's kitchen and
ended up serving our guests sad looking pizza that day.
