All of this started very innocently at my parent’s convenience stores in 1997. After roaming the countryside chasing my dream to be a famous singer I landed back at home with out much of a direction. My parents had been in the convenience store business since 1985 and it was natural that eventually I would end up back working for them. I remember the first store that they opened. The deli consisted of an electric skillet to scramble eggs and a hot plate to cook burgers on, not very fancy but never the less the American Dream. I helped open three of the four stores that my parents built all the while still searching for my niche or my place in this crazy world. My sister Loretta and I had several businesses through the years, painting T-shirts, making jewelry and other artistic types of things. While working for my parents I was able to have the space to cultivate and grow my business of pie baking. My earliest memory of this was Cherry pie and Banana Nut Bread. I would bake an assortment of sweets, let them cool, hand wrap them and label them with labels that I printed off of my PC. A lot of things have changed since then. I now have real stick on labels that are printed by a label company a wrapping machine to wrap them with and employees to bake my pies. In 2005 my father gave me a ½ acre of land and I took the dive and built the first Pie in the Sky Pie Co.. It has been tough and I must admit that there have been days when I have doubted myself. It was much more simple to pick up a paycheck every two weeks. But when I walk in the back door of my kitchen each day I smile inside.
