Pie, Pie My Darling signs lease on first retail storefront!

THE CAT IS OUTTA THE BAG!!! My hands are literally shaking as I write this because I truly can’t even believe it’s real. After nearly five years of stocking restaurants with cake slices, accepting hundreds of special orders, and popping up at several different locations around the city of Chicago, I have finally secured a retail space and signed a five year lease for my vegan bakery! Those of you who have been following since day one know how many ups and downs I’ve faced while chasing this dream of mine, and the thought of knowing for once that things are set in stone and can’t be taken away from me seriously brings tears to my eyes. I am absolutely overjoyed that things have finally fallen into place, after years of moving from kitchen to kitchen and never feeling secure or grounded where I'm at. I’ve created a gofundme to help cover some of the costs of purchasing equipment, obtaining licensing, hiring more staff, and buildout/remodeling, so click the link below if you’re interested in being a part of it. Any little bit at all is appreciated! Thank you all so incredibly much for making me believe that I can actually do this. I have never done anything like this in my whole entire life and I am absolutely terrified, but I’m going to keep pushing through the fear because I know what’s on the other side is worth every bit of the fight.
