Much mahalos to all of my dedicated customers. Thank you so very much for being patient with us as we take this step into retail expansion. We have been through a lot in the past 3 months, and I am so very grateful for all of my faithful customers as well as the many new customers and friends we have made since opening the shop.
It has been a whirlwind of going from doing 5 or 6 farmer’s markets a week with 2 part time employees to adding in 7 days a week at the retail shop AND bringing on 5 more employees. Trying to fit it all in and make it all work took some time, but I think we have it figured out. We have a great team at the bakery, and their training is almost complete…I hope that you have been able to meet all of our new bakers and get to know them. Watch for several new faces at our upcoming farmer’s markets as we start cross training.
Thank you also to everyone as we train our new staff. You may have noticed some glitches along the way….but I think we have worked through those growing pains, and I am happy to say we are on our way to fun new things! Keep an eye on us over the next two months…you won’t want to miss a minute of it! …did someone say Pie Ravioli?!?!?! shhhhhh….
You probably noticed that we had some unexpected downtime last week, due to some poor attitude on our oven’s part. I am happy to report that we will be up and running at full capacity again tomorrow! Yippee! So…if you have been craving a homemade pot pie or a slice and coffee, stop in tomorrow! We will be open from 11-6.
Baker Sandy also just returned from a trip to the mainland. How did her bakers do while she was away? She would love to hear your comments/suggestions/concerns. Please reply to this post, or e-mail her directly at firstname.lastname@example.org . She is excited to get back in the bakery and is VERY happy to let you all know that she came back to Kaua’i with an entire suitcase FULL of caramels! You know what that means…Caramel Apple Pecan Pie is BACK on the menu! We will be baking some tomorrow, so stop in after work, or on Thursday morning and pick up one of our favorite flavors.
I hope to see you all enjoying a delicious slice of Kaua’i Fresh Pie soon! Stop by the new shop and say Aloha! 1543 Haleukana St, Lihue….Puhi Industrial Park…just a block from Mark’s Place!
And mark your calendars….Grand Opening Celebration…Saturday, October 8th…from 11-6. You won’t want to miss out on the chance to win free pie for a year, or our special pie deals all day long.
