About Us

Life is one that is well lived when you are doing something fun.

TukTuk YumYum came about by matching two great skill sets of myself, Founder Debey Grimes and co-owner Daniel Faulkner. I've had the best life growing up in the mountains around Truckee and Lake Tahoe diving deep into Hospitality from hotels, to coffee shops to working in some of our best restaurants in the area. I attended University of Nevada Reno, studying Economics, which lead to my Masters in Hospitality Administration from University of Nevada Las Vegas.

Traveling around in Rickshaws in Southeast Asia is some of my best travel memories and the idea of traveling around or sharing your trade via a vehicle that also makes you smile created a lasting impression on me. When we started coming up with a plan, I knew a TukTuk would certainly bring the fun.

Dan is a builder and vehicle designer and custom built everything you see, and don't see on our Piaggio Ape TukTuk. He created a one of a kind Lithium Battery System powerful enough to work with our machines... and I got to design it to how I wanted this little box of joy to be.

As a family we celebrate our community at public events in the Reno-Tahoe area, sharing our amazing treats with you. We want everyone to share in 15 minutes of a delightful treat, where you truly get to live in the moment. Our private catered events are our next step to creating a lasting memory for you and your loved ones. We like to bring even MORE fun to your celebrations!
