We are Bill and Kate Bedortha and we are the happy and proud owners of Rocky Mountain Wraps
We spent years running our Austin, TX based food company Solar Falafel & Hummus, bringing healthy food to the masses was our passion. Whether in the grocery stores of Texas or at the many Music Festivals, Street Fairs and live events, you could find us serving food made with love on a warm Pita.
After one of our customers, Wheatsville Coop, requested Solar Falafel to offer food at their music festival Bill & Kate were hooked and decided to invest and grow that segment of the business as a natural marketing vehicle, a very profitable revenue stream and a whole bunch of fun.
Solar Falafel then became very well-known at festivals and events in Central Texas for healthy food, served fast and with a smile. Solar Falafel serviced over 15,000 people a weekend at (6) six Austin City Limits Festivals, 8,000 at (2) two Willie Nelson Birthday Parties, 5,000 people at the Rolling Stones Concert in Zilker Park all the way down to a few hundred people at events like art festivals, street fairs and small music festivals.
From the Austin City Limits Festival’s to Willie Nelson’s Fourth of July Picnic's, The Old Settlers Bluegrass Festival's in Wimberley, TX to the Pecan Street Festival on Austin’s infamous 6th Street, you could find Solar Falafel serving hundreds to tens of thousands of hungry, happy festival goers with rave reviews!
Solar Falafel was a food manufacturer in Austin, Texas. We started with 2 products and a small food cart and grew to 16 retail products selling in over 300 stores and restaurants. We became well known throughout the southwest for our Falafel, Hummus and Chicken Wraps and Hummus Dips which were distributed at retail through HEB & Central Markets, Whole Foods, Wild Oats and Randall’s/Safeway Grocery Stores. Additionally, we established retail distribution in most independent grocers and coffee shops in Central Texas.
Bill & Kate sold Solar Falafel in 2008 to Solar Natural Foods of Texas in order to pursue another adventure.
We love music, people and healthy food and missed the action so after taking a few years off and putting down Colorado roots we have decided to bring our homemade, family recipes to the people locally or an event near you.
