Our “Meet The Merchant” series is written for you, our reader, to introduce you to the shops, restaurants, services + people that make the Bishop Arts District unique. This week, we’re talking to Emporium Pies.
Emporium Pies wants to make people happy and to create opportunities for friends and neighbors to spend time together over a delicious slice of pie.
BAD: What is your business all about?
EP: We are a local pie shop. We make our pies with love by hand, from scratch with our own recipes. Our menu is seasonal, but our smiles are always in season! 🙂
BAD: When did you open your doors?
EP: We opened in September 2012.
BAD: Why did you choose the Bishop Arts District?
EP: We chose Bishop Arts District because it is where our community lived and the folks in the neighborhood really understand the value of a hand made product without a bunch of hydrogenated oils, dyes and preservatives.
BAD: What’s your favorite thing about the Bishop Arts District?
EP: I love that I can walk down the street and see a bunch of people I know. Friends and neighbors, fellow business owners. It is a real community of people who look out for each other and genuinely care for each other.
BAD: Build a perfect date night in the Bishop Arts District. Where would you go? What would you do?
EP: My perfect family day would start with brunch at Boulevardier and then a walk down to Dirt Flowers to pick a flower out for each of my girls. We would stroll around for a bit to walk off breakfast and then grab a piece of pie before nap time.
BAD: Any fun news you’d like to share during your “Meet the Merchant” Tuesday Takeover?
EP: National Pi Day is coming up on March 14th (3.14) and our delicious Chickin Lickin pot pie will be in stores all day!
