Two Slices Pie Co. is all about natural, fresh baked pies. All pie crusts are recipes handed down for generations. Fruit pies, custard pies, cream pies, nut pies, and specialty pies, in various crust (i.e. flakey butter crust, vanilla wafer crumble crust, graham cracker crust, etc...) all made from scratch. These pies come in four different sizes: the 1" Pie-Bite, the 2" Pie- Cup, the 4" Mini-Pie, and the 9" Whole Pie.

Iced Fruit Stand Smoothies are all natural, whole fruit smoothies. They start with frozen fruit, 100% fruit juice, almond milk, soy milk, or yogurt, and for an additional amount some "Boom"  could be added in; such as protein powder, wheat grass, multi-vitamin, energy, flax & fiber too. What makes Iced Fruit Stand different is there is no ice added so the flavor doesn't get watered down, and you are left with full servings of delicious fruit.

                                          What's the money for?
Well, we need to lease our storefront, then we have to upgrade it with commercial kitchen which not only requires materials and construction labor, but city and county permits. license's, and inspections, walk-in refrigerator, baking equipment, inventory, a cooled delivery van, a sign displaying the name out front.  Not to mention decor; we are looking to have an eclectic rainforest feeling, and eclectic is a few pennies more than standard.  I could continue the list, and it is a long list on what we need to get this going.  The money we have asked for in our pledge will just get us open, no extra's, no frills, no "insurance" in the bank. But to just get open, would be priceless to us.

Risks and challenges

A major risk for us is not securing our chosen location. We currently do not have the funds for a down payment, or a leasehold, and though the owner likes us, and would love to have us, if another company showed up with "fundage", well, business is business.

Another risk is that there are restaurants, cake and pastry shops, and other food locations opened around the world everyday, and then less than a year later, they are closed. We think those failures often happen because of mismanagement, unrealistic financial goals and lack of work ethic. Well, we have some college education (Eurshla-fincance, Ella-chemistry, Kim-restaunrant management/hospitality), a lot of common sense, and as for work ethic, we currently cater for small businesses, and bake hundreds of pies out of a 50 sq. ft kitchen, and we don't rest until every order is out the door.

And what about the economy? Well, it is on a upswing, and not every restaurant/food establishment went under when our economy crashed. People still had to eat. We won't have dollar menu pricing, but it will be feasible for the majority of budgets.

Other risk will be in the remodel/upgrade of the building with permits, drains, maybe even the right color of paint, but we will take each challenge as a lemon, and turn it into lemonade.

Here it is, we have had some moments of frustration, in our 50 ft kitchen, but we are all in agreeance that this is what we want, that this feels so right, that everything we have done and experienced in our lives has prepared us for this moment for this business.
