Hi! My name is Chrissy and I’m the owner and creator of Pie Chicks.
Pie Chicks is a new wholesale bakery on the island of Martha’s Vineyard, which is where I live.
I’ve been baking my whole life and whenever I bring a pie to a potluck or a party people say to me “You should do this for a living”. So I’m going to. And I'd love to have your help.
In order for this to really work I need equipment like mixers and refrigerators and bowls and spatulas and pans and stuff that helps me make really good pie.
And you can contribute to my success by being a part of my Pie chicks campaign.
Think of it as investing in your future happiness.
Purchasing two large commercial mixers, a walk in fridge, a refrigerator and a few chest freezers costs about $12,000. I have found some really great used equipment and I’m hoping to be able to pay off a chunk of this initial capital investment so that my business can really flourish and I can stay focused on the important stuff—like baking really really good pies.
And when you contribute to my campaign you get pie, so it’s really a win win. Unless you don’t like pie, but I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who doesn’t like pie. And for those of you who are gluten-free--I will happily substitute a Gluten-Free Crisp in place of any delivered pie. And for all of my friends, family and fans in the Cleveland area: I will be home for the holidays and will gladly bake and deliver pies to you then. If you can wait that long! I promise you--it's worth it.
And if you really really love pie (like I do) you can come to pie class or have a pie party at your home for all of your friends. You can even get a pie named after you. Think of all the pie possibilities!
Anything I reach over my goal will go towards helping me hire a pie helper for this summer season. Because the world definitely needs more Pie Chicks. Anything I raise under my goal will help me to pay for my equipment.
I’m pretty certain that pie can save the world. I’ve written a little piece (piece, get it?) about Saving the World One Pie at a Time. You can find it on my website at http://www.piechicks.com/save-the-world.html
My new business is really exciting for me because it lets me combine my education (I have a business degree from Ohio State--GO BUCKS!) and work experience (I spent 7 years at The FARM Institute as the Business Manager and then as the Development Director) and my passion which is baking. So I’m thrilled to be at this point in my life where I’m ready to take a risk...and make lots of pie for all of you to enjoy!
I’d love your help in spreading the word and getting more pie out into the world. Please use the easy share tools on Indiegogo and Facebook. I appreciate your support and generosity.
Thanks Everyone! I hope to see you all real soon.
