French-Canadian Inspired Cake Business in Tucson Expands to Food Truck

Forget the plain white box - Christa Lebron is serving up childhood nostalgia in the form of vibrant, intricate bento cakes. Her business, "Chez Peachy," is a sweet fusion of her French-Canadian roots and a growing trend in bite-sized delights.

"Chez Peachy" isn't just a shop name, it's a family affair. "My dad, who passed away in 2015, used to call me 'Peachy' because I had big, rosy cheeks as a baby," Lebron explains. "Chez" in French means "at someone's place," so "Chez Peachy" is essentially an invitation to her own creative haven.

These aren't your average cupcakes. Lebron's bento cakes are mini masterpieces, adorned with intricate piping, playful decorations, and sometimes even a touch of sparkle. Inspired by the Japanese bento box - a single-serving meal packed with delicious variety - these cakes offer a unique twist on familiar flavors.

But why bento cakes? "People are craving originality," Lebron says. "They want cakes that reflect their personalities, and bento cakes allow for so much customization and creativity."

From her home kitchen to a food truck rolling through Tucson streets, Chez Peachy is on the move. "It was time to grow," Lebron admits. "And the food truck scene in Tucson is amazing, so welcoming and supportive."

The truck itself will be a visual extension of her cake designs, evoking a sense of childhood nostalgia. "Think Barbie, Polly Pockets, Pet Shops," Lebron describes, "anything that brings back happy memories."

Choosing a food truck over a brick-and-mortar store was a simple decision. "It's more affordable, and the community is incredible," Lebron shares. "I can't wait to share my creations with even more people at our grand opening in April!"

So, get ready for a taste of sweetness and a sprinkle of nostalgia. With Chez Peachy's food truck hitting the streets, Tucson's dessert scene is about to get a whole lot more colorful and charming.
