Piebird wants to bring more joy to more people - we do that through more dessert! Since 2011, Piebird has supplied restaurants and clients in Pittsburgh with pastries and desserts, keeping their clients delightfully satisfied. Chef Annalee DePaoli invites your help in order to grow!

To keep up with the pace of demand, Piebird wants to move into her own commercial kitchen with plans to add a retail space in the next three years. In 2015, Piebird's new nest is opening at 5304 Butler Street, in Lawrenceville.

This kickstarter campaign will support the purchase of upgraded commercial pastry kitchen equipment including ovens, mixers, refrigerators, cookie sheets, and all of other essentials that are necessary to make your sweet essentials. 

Helping Piebird today will support us into our next phase of development. We hope you join us!!

Risks and challenges

Some of the challenges any food related business faces in this area are permitting, inspection, and the red tape associated with building something new. we've done our best to surmount these obstacles by doing our diligence and as much leg work as we can upfront. The other, much more entertaining obstacle in our life, is our three beautiful and very distracting children ages four, two, and two months... we'll subject you to many more pictures of them before this is all through!
