STEINBACH, Man. – There’s no wind and it feels like the sun’s heat has baked the inside of a food truck where Anna Sigrithur stands over a hot stove pouring crepe batter into a pan.
Without a second thought, Sigrithur flicks her wrist and the circular crepe flips over expertly.
Ride-sharing service TappCar will soon be expanding to Steinbach after testing the waters this past week to gauge interest in the southeastern Manitoba city.
The Edmonton-based company says it has received an “overwhelming response” for driver applications through its website.

Two motorcycles were seized last weekend after Steinbach RCMP clocked both of them excessively speeding.
Police were on patrol May 11 when they caught a motorcyclist travelling 202 km/h in a 100 km/h on Highway 52 between La Broquerie and Steinbach.
The deaths of a father and son in a Steinbach home Saturday are being treated as suspicious by Manitoba RCMP.
Police say they were called to Parkwood Cove at around 2 p.m., where they found the bodies of a 54-year-old man and 25-year-old man.
A man from La Broquerie, Manitoba was struck and killed by a vehicle on Highway 52 early Sunday.
Steinbach RCMP responded to the crash at around 2:20 a.m. about eight kilometres west La Broquerie.
