Pancake truck owner crowned June Entrepreneur of the Month by US embassy

Businesswoman Alexandra Lipovan, the owner of a pancake truck in Satu Mare, is the June 2015 Entrepreneur of the Month – a title awarded by the United States Embassy in Bucharest.

“The U.S. Embassy applauds Ms. Lipovan for her success with Clatitaria ClaTos. She reminds us all that business opportunities, both big and small, are plentiful in the Romanian economy and within reach for those with the courage to pursue them. As Romania grows and develops, it will benefit from entrepreneurs who build new companies, adapt and reform old ones, and lead the country into the future,” the embassy wrote in a media release on Wednesday.

Armed with little more than her love of cooking and her modest savings from a part-time job, Ms. Lipovan started this micro-enterprise while attending university in Cluj. She turned her passion for crepes into a thriving, successful business that employees two people. Her street cart is a beloved fixture of the picturesque streets of Satu Mare for delicious food at an affordable price,” the US embassy website details. More…
