The Inspired Pie Series (What is it?!)
by: Lauren Bolden, Owner, Pie Bar
We have a summer series launching in May that I am super excited about!!
When I talk with my team about 2022, I refer to it as "The Year of Fun." The past two years have been wonky (to say the least) and I wanted to find a way to channel our "WE WILL SURVIVE" energy into "LET'S HAVE FUN!" energy.
I take all goals seriously..even if the goal is to have more fun.
Some FUN things Pie Bar has done so far in 2022 include:
- The Spring Break Pie Collab with Red Hare Brewery.
(hello, we got to bake with pineapples! So fun.)
- Our team hosted a surprise wedding shower for Pie Bar's General Manager and Fairy Godmother, Vivian.
(P.S. Our fav dark-haired cutie is getting married in only a few shorts days!)
- We donated over $800 worth of pies to local schools and organizations.
(because sharing is caring..and caring is fun.)
But the FUN will not / does not stop there.
On May 1, 2022, we will kick off our 1st ever:
Inspired Pie Series
This idea (like most of my ideas) came to me while I was in the shower.
I was thinking all businessey when I realized, I don't want to focus on that right now.
I want to focus on collaboration and joy and PIE.
I want to focus on FUN.
I immediately emailed some of my fellow pie shop owners across The United States and pitched my idea to them.
What if Pie Bar baked one of their signature pies for a whole month?
We would introduce their shop to the Pie Bar Fam, and hopefully, expand this pie-loving community even more than we already have.
They all agreed!!
From May - August 2022 we will feature a different pie shop + their signature pie flavor here at Pie Bar!
Of course, lucky for me I ran this idea by Vivian before reaching out..and that genius brain of hers had the brilliant idea to create an Inspired Pie Series Passport.
*Round of Applause*
The Inspired Pie Series Passports are small cards that you can get at either Pie Bar Shop.
Then when you make your first purchase of either a slice or whole pie of the Inspired Pie Flavor of the month, you'll receive one stamp.
At the end of the summer, if you have a stamp for each month (May - August) you'll receive a special Pie Bar treat as a thank you for participating!
I know you're excited to hear what the flavors and pie shops are going to be for each month. Details on each shop and flavor will be announced early next week, so stay tuned!
