Hey guys! Just a little update about the world of Proper Pie. We had a big day on Friday. We passed our health inspection with flying colors, procured our Certificate of Occupancy, and got our business license! Woohoo! So now we are APPROVED to OPERATE!!!
So here's what's next on the plate: we are making big ingredient orders today and tomorrow and finishing up our punch list at the shop. We will be testing our ovens and practicing our pies this week (and doing some paint touch ups and various other things...) Not 100% sure when our "official" opening date will be, but you will be sure to know!
As far as those who are getting their rewards shipped, once the Proper T-shirts have arrived, we will be shipping out everything! Thanks again so much for helping us make this a reality. I can't wait for you all to come see the pie shop. It's been a crazy, exhausting, and wonderful experience, and we have had help from the most amazing people: YOU!
Thanks so much to everyone that has answered the survey. Looks like we're still waiting on about 49 people to respond. The faster we can get your responses, the sooner you'll get your rewards!
Also: it appears that 8 people are still having trouble getting their Amazon payment to work. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks so much to those of you that have resolved the issue already!
We think we are very close to getting up and running. Just a few more things to purchase, hook up, and do, and our deli case (that will be filled with lots of delicious things soon!) is in transit. Plus, we need to get our final inspections once all of the key pieces are in place (fingers crossed that it will all go smoothly). We will be sure to let you know when we have figured out our opening day!
Thanks once again for all of your support.
I just want to thank everyone again SO much for all the support! Truly incredible! We are closer than ever to getting the shop open! (We're getting our phone line installed today! 804.343.PIES! Yay!)
I will be sending out a short survey with a few questions about your rewards later this afternoon, so keep an eye out for it!
Also: a number of you have gotten in touch about a failed Amazon payment. Apparently this is a pretty common problem and can happen for a number of reasons. Here's a handy-dandy link that might be helpful:
And please feel free to send me a message if you have any questions!
Thanks so much, and as always, remember to keep it PROPER!
You guys are INCREDIBLE!! We are so honored, humbled, and thrilled by your support. We seriously cannot wait to get you all of your delicious pies and things! Thank you SO MUCH. I can't believe we not only reached our goal, but 3 days early! And it's our also our 4th wedding anniversary, which makes it all the more meaningful. For real, thankyouthankyouthankyou. And remember: keep it PROPER!
