Who am I? 

Hey there. Hi. HELLO! I am Meghan Daly, founder of Daly Pie. I started on this crazy journey back in 2011 when I decided to quit my corporate job, follow my heart and start my own pie company. I have spent the last few years perfecting over 100 fun original recipes while slinging pies all over NYC. You may have seen me at markets like Artists & Fleas and The Brooklyn Night Bazaar, or at fun events like Pat Kiernan's Trivia Night, at your office luncheon or perhaps at your doorstep with a pie and a smile.   Check us out on Instagram for more pie pictures and general shenanigans.

What will the Daly Pie Shop be like? 

Close your eyes, well you know not literally because then you couldn't read the rest of this, metaphorically close your eyes…Picture a space that is equal parts hip cafe, kitsch classic diner, and upscale beer & wine bar. Imagine being able to get a slice of our delicious pie and pair it with the perfect craft beer. Imagine hanging out at a neighborhood joint where people remember your name and your favorite slice of pie. Picture sharing a float with two straws while making eyes across the table at someone who makes your heart flutter. Daly Pie will be bring all of these things to you, plus so much more.

The nitty-gritty a.k.a. why I need your help:

It probably isn’t too shocking that opening a store in NYC can be very expensive. To date Daly Pie has been totally self-funded and I’ve been growing the business methodically year-over-year. Now it’s time to open a store so I can bring bring you pie all the time. I need your support to ensure that this venture is totally successful.

What the Money, Money, Money will go towards:

The moolah raised will help secure the perfect space, and pay for loads of important stuff like construction/build-out, permits, and equipment.

 Who should support the project?

Anybody and everybody! More specifically if you love pies, supporting local small businesses, woman-owned businesses, people who chase their dreams, puppies, people who work hard, coffee, snacks, bunnies, being silly, high-fives, deliciousness, hustle, and you know PIES!

Risks and challenges

There are lots of variables and challenges opening a bakery in NYC, I have made all the spreadsheets and run all the scenarios, crossed the i's and dotted the t's (and the other way around too!) The biggest challenge will be finding the right space and time it will take to build out said space. I have already sourced many of the rewards and am really good at stuffing envelopes (i.e., getting things out quickly). The target open date for the shop is Fall 2015.
