If you’ve been around Indianapolis and Greenwood recently, you might have spotted a vibrant pink food truck attracting attention. That’s none other than the elusive The Cavity Factory, a dessert sensation that has taken social media platforms by storm. Thanks to its viral success on TikTok and Instagram, the Cavity Factory is now expanding its reach with the opening of a ghost kitchen in downtown Indianapolis.
Operational mainly on weekends, The Cavity Factory is about to bring joy to even more sweet-toothed customers with its new kitchen. The expansion means that delightful cookies will soon be available for pickup, delivery, and even online shipping, making them more accessible to Central Indiana residents and beyond.
The mastermind behind this delicious venture is 24-year-old Destinee Smith, who ventured into the baking world during the pandemic. Faced with uncertainties about her full-time job, Destinee decided to turn her passion for baking into a business, initially focusing on creating cakes and cupcakes.
However, despite her best efforts, the cake and cupcake venture didn’t yield the desired profits. In a stroke of inspiration, Destinee decided to pivot to cookies, seeking something convenient and enjoyable for her customers. And so, the cookie cult of The Cavity Factory was born.
The iconic cookie truck didn’t come into existence until a significant turning point in Destinee’s journey. During her first vendor event, disaster struck when her table collapsed, sending all $700 worth of her product crashing to the ground. Though heartbroken and frustrated, Destinee didn’t give up. In the middle of the night, around 2 a.m., she purchased an electric truck, determined to make her cookie dreams a reality.
“I ended up going home so upset, crying and everything, I went home, I got mad, and I bought the truck,” shared Smith. “I’m going to make it happen.” And make it happen, she did.
Since then, The Cavity Factory’s cookie cult has been spreading like wildfire, captivating the taste buds and imaginations of dessert lovers all over Central Indiana. Now, with the new ghost kitchen in downtown Indianapolis, the delightful treats will reach even more eager customers.
But Destinee’s ambitions don’t stop there. Currently working on developing a website and a merchandise line, she has plans to cater to more dietary preferences, exploring sugar-free and gluten-free options to accommodate a broader audience.
The Cavity Factory’s success story doesn’t end with this expansion. The brand has its sights set on conquering the west side of Indianapolis, aiming to establish a walk-in bakery in the city and eventually expand its presence across the country.
