"A future memory of pie" has taken on new meaning through every order, email, DM, and phone call we've received. Our shop east of Lake Merritt closed not very long after the shelter-in-place order was extended. Each week brought about new lessons of change and we worked hard as a team to pivot to serve customers . How would we continue to incite joy through pie for our supportive Bay Area community and beyond? Contactless Delivery was key to us reaching customers that infrequently visited the shop on 2nd avenue sometimes driving 20 miles or more to get pie every Wednesday through Saturday. Increasing availability of Pietisserie at Grocery Retailers helped us provide pies in communities around the bay 7 days a week, delivered fresh up to twice a week in some locations. Places like Star Grocery, Berkeley Bowl, Sigona's Market, Diablo Foods, and others haved since welcomed new faces in search of pie. Our most enthusiatic pie lovers continue to let bakery managers know that they are looking for Pietisserie. We forged new partnerships to create pickup locations for online ordering in Oakland at Belcampo Meat Co. and in San Francisco at Douglas on Sanchez -- they also carry pies that you can purchase (especially on days we are closed). Calls from a far have been answered with the return of Pie-by-Mail shipping to our friends in South Carolina, New York, Texas and Southern California.
We look forward to sharing new flavors and updates like this one in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.
