We are an artisan bakery creating some awesome pies, they are gourmet and healthy. The founder and chief creator and baker is Mari-Lyn Harris aka The Pie Princess…Who’s talking about pies? The Pie Princess is along with her fans.
Since I love to bake, I started doing some baking of pies and muffins and shared them with friends and neighbors. They were ecstatic and said what I made was very delicious. And I ought to go into the pie business.
On a trip to San Francisco, I didn’t want to go into the city one day and I asked if I could just stay and hang out at Doug and Diane place, (friends we were staying at) they said, “sure that’s fine with us”. Then, I asked if it would be okay if I made some pies? “Pie?”, Doug says. Yes I replied, off to the store I went and bought a few ingredients to make pies. At the end of the day I had made five pies.
On the way home from San Francisco, I started to chat with friends about getting into the pie business. So, for a couple of weekends I did some sampling of my pies at Linda and Ray’s yard sale. Over the course of two weekends – 200 samples were given away and had gotten some pretty good accolades without asking for them from people who tried one or two samples. I even had a guy call me back later just to tell me how “my pastry was awesome.”
Here were some accolades that people have given me:
◆ Outrageous pie, Wow!
◆ The cranberries just burst in your mouth – full of flavor
◆ Best Pecan pie ever
◆ Loved the Grapefruit & Lime
◆ Very good
◆ Fantastically delicious – inventively satisfying
◆ Pastry is out of this world
◆ Very flavorful…
• Great Pie
• Really Good!!
Since the sampling, I got serious started to set up a pie business. The pies sold themselves. Completed the brochure and continue to make up recipes, serving pies to friends, strangers.. Giving people the opportunity to experience the 5 minute bite. Ideas started to flow, people began to share them, and ordered.
The pies names are created, like the recipes from the “ Waitress movie.” (I was a waitress for a few years too!) are unique, as they are made up combination’s of flavors and ingredients that in turn make some very interesting flavors.
We make Adult Gourmet Pies. Why adult you ask? Because they are made with Beer, Wine and Spirits, these are my specialties, naughty ingredients.
As an artisan bakery, we’ve grown through word of mouth, exhibiting, cross-promoting and getting reviews and raves from my customers, using Social Media and video marketing.
We offer Wedding Pies, or Grooms pie for any occasion you are celebrating. Even I can create a gift basket for welcoming, your guests, for B&B’s, hotels or a gift just to say Thank you! It’s all about our relationships and retaining our clients and paying it forward to our community too!
Looking forward in serving you soon!
