Pie, Pie My Darling 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.
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'm 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.
My bakery will be located at 2636 W Chicago Ave in West Town. It is not currently open to the public but I will be sure to make a big announcement on here and all of my social media platforms when an opening date is set!
Please note that special orders are closed for the time being so I can work on the build out/re-model of my store! You can still find my cakes by the slice daily at Paulie Gee's Logan Square and The Handlebar in Wicker Park.
