Recently I had the opportunity to hear the story of how Pie Bar in Woodstock began with owners Cody and Lauren Bolden. This couple told their tale about working with your spouse, starting a business born of passion verses real business knowledge, andloving the community they serve. (I have a new crush couple and will be buying pies to support them and their business!) At this entrepreneur speech at The Circuit, they announced their new endeavor, Pie Provisions. Enter here to win a pie and their new pie crust mix!
The Pie Bar launched Pie Provisions on June 14th, 2017. Pie Provisions will provide home bakers the ingredients and know-how to make high-quality pie in the comfort of their home. A featured offered item is a Pie Crust Mix based on the recipe and ingredients used in their well-known pie shop, Pie Bar located in Downtown Woodstock.
Initially, Pie Provisions’ Pie Crust Mix will be available on their website as well as in several local markets. A pie-based monthly subscription box will be added later this fall, and they think that a gluten free option may be their second item launched.
Cody and Lauren opened Pie Bar in Downtown Woodstock in the Fall of 2015, and have worked since then to bring the community great pie on a daily basis.
“Starting Pie Provisions is going to allow us the opportunity to share our love of pie with more people across The United States,” Lauren said.
She added, “This fall we’re going on a ‘Pie-O-Neer Tour’ where we’ll be driving across the country and teaching people how to make their best pie using our pie crust mix.” Dates and tour stops will be announced on the Pie Provisions’ website.
Each Pie Crust Mix contains enough dry ingredients to make one double crust or two single pie crusts. The mix is made up of organic pastry flour for easy work-ability, pure cane sugar for a tender dough, and premium sea salt to elevate the crust’s overall taste.
“We have created this Pie Crust Mix to be an easy-to-prepare recipe for buttery, flaky pie crusts for those bakers that have a fear of bakingpie,” Cody explained. “Each box contains detailed instructions as well as the highest quality ingredients that we have spent the past few years curating at our pie shop.”
The Pie Bar won an episode of “Sugar Showdown” on the Cooking Channel, bringing home a $10,000 grand prize that they invested back into their company and employees.
