About this project

It's been a long and exciting three months. We took an old office space in Logan Square that was vacant for a decade and converted it to a beautiful pie shop. Check out our before and after pictures! This has been an incredible learning experience and opportunity for us to make something from nothing. While we feel ready to open and we think we've done everything properly, the city makes the final decision and they want more.

As it turns out, this space has never been occupied by a legitimate business so it has never been reviewed by a building inspector. This isn't something we could have known until we applied for our license (which we did, and were turned away). We now have to hire an architect to draw plans for work that typically doesn't need such plans. This will make the space legitimate for us, but it's a huge unforeseen cost.

The cost of the architect in addition to the time we remain unopen means we need to reach out to you for help. Our total costs add up to more than we're asking in this Kickstarter project, but this amount will help us a lot.

We're not asking for charity, think of this as prepaying for your future happiness. We have fantastic pies made from scratch, hand roasted coffees, and incredible biscuits made with house churned butter. As a thank you for your help, we're offering these rewards at discounted rates. We can't wait to open our doors and thank you in person!
