Our favorite cooking mama Miss Robbie of Sweetie Pies has expansion on the brain and she is looking at Memphis Tennessee.
I love Miss Robbie and the idea of Sweetie Pies being a little closer to Atlanta makes my heart skip beats. Fried Chicken anyone?
Check out the details below.
Acclaimed soul food chef and Sweetie Pie’s Restaurant owner Miss Robbie Montgomery and her family are returned to OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network on Saturday, July 12 at 9pm ET/PT for another lively season of the Pilgrim Studios-produced, NAACP Image Award-winning docu-series “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s.”
In an all-new season, Miss Robbie and Tim, prepare to expand their restaurant empire beyond St. Louis with a new location on historic Beale Street in Memphis, Tennessee. Getting the restaurant together is no easy task as they prepare to renovate the new location and find staff to train in time for the summer rush. Meanwhile, back in St. Louis, Tim struggles with planning the move to Memphis while continuing to manage the local restaurants, and hires a new district manager, Ma’ri, who quickly implements change and starts ruffling the staff’s feathers. As if Miss Robbie’s plate wasn’t full enough, she’s also moving ahead with launching her new Sweetie Pie’s Sweet Tea line. It’s all systems go as this family works hard to expand their brand – one recipe at a time.
What Miss Robbie has to say about the Beale Street location,
“You are never too old to stop dreaming and it truly is an honor to be invited to open up my next Sweetie Pie’s restaurant on historic Beale Street in Memphis. I used to play in Memphis all the time during my days as an Ikette, and it’s great to be helping bring African American-owned businesses back to an area that has such significance to our community.”
I think this is a great look. Beale Street is known for its culture and a little Sweetie Pies is just what the belly ordered!
The new restaurant is scheduled to open later this summer.
