What do cotton candy, event planning, and bartending all have in common? Each of these is part of a larger movement that has gained a lot of traction this summer: mobile services. With COVID-19 limiting peoples’ opportunities to celebrate events and accomplishments at a restaurant or a bar, mobile service companies such as cotton candy company Spun Sugar Detroit, mobile bartending company Neat Pours Detroit, and event planning and design company Morgan Taylor’d Events are stepping up and taking over. Mandy Tamborini, owner of Spun Sugar Detroit, started her business at the end of 2016 and has been doing mobile cotton candy sales for events and parties since 2017. She has eight cotton candy carts, giving her the flexibility to attend all different kinds of events whenever she is booked.
