Our initial idea is to open a Texas Pie Kitchen storefront as a small non-profit business in a low-income neighborhood in the Rundberg/I-35 area of Austin. The Pie Kitchen will be an investment in the surrounding community enabling economic growth, offering job training and opportunity to those with barriers to employment. In the meantime, we share and sell our pies throughout the Austin area working to establish a diverse client base. So, when it comes time to open up the storefront it will serve to bring together people from all over Austin. In keeping with the world-renowned Austin tradition of live music, we will draw on a rich, regional musical heritage by featuring in-store performances from a range of artists as diverse as our client base.
