Staying on Mama Crunk's Brand, it has taken us a full year to update our blog, because, well, life.
Cuz woo, life has moved pretty fast this past year.
When you last caught up with us here, we were ready to move into a shared kitchen in St. Elmo with Plus Coffee. It was our "baby storefront" as we lovingly called it and we learned a ton!
We held events there, sold a ton of pies and pastries, worked with some great folks and went thru a year of trials, challenges and education. When we finally decided to move on and pursue more space and room to stretch our legs, we were really grateful for the experience and for all the relationships we forged there.
In early August, we moved to the historic Countdown Building in Old Town Brainerd and have been using it as a our commissary kitchen and occasional pop-up/event space. This quirky and spacious venue has been home to some old Chattanooga classic establishments like Leonard's Restaurant and Tap Room and Cooper's Antiques.
We've felt very welcome there and have already held some events, including our dim sum-influenced Spirited Away showing, which was packed and SO much fun.
How cool is this No Face cosplay tho???
Though our goal of eventually opening another retail storefront is in the works, this venue allows us to build towards that while sharing creatively themed and community-centered events and workshops, not to mention a place for y'all to pick up the pies you know and love.
With the fall/holiday season on the horizon, we're so excited to bring you more flavors and options for your gatherings, tables and events (I am already salivating thinking about the smoked turkey Thanksgiving pot pies we'll be offering on the website soon, along with a bevy of sides....I don't think I can overstate how much I love Thanksgiving and start planning my own personal menu for it in oh, April).
With that in mind, we're moving towards providing you with more catering options, packages and snacks that'll appeal to everyone, whether they have a sweet tooth or not!! Whether it be big or small pies, pastries or charcuterie, we've got you!
You can check out more info about our catering here and stay tuned to that page as we update it with more details!!
If that doesn't keep us busy enough, we're always out and about in Chattanooga hustling at other local establishments or out in the community. If you want to see one of our lovable mugs and smiling faces (depending on the day, ha), never miss catching us at one of our various pop-ups, vendor nights, movie events, etc., on our new events calendar found here.
Yeah, I know that's barely hitting the tip of the iceberg of what we did in the past year + all the plans we have into the new one, but I guess that just means I'll have to update this blog more often ;) We'll see if that happens.
In the meantime, y'all stay hungry and happy and always leave room for pie!
