Sierra Storytelling Festival – Our First Event

Sierra Storytelling Festival – Our First Event

Wow! Our opening weekend was a great success! It was a hard push at the end, but everything came together just in time, and we made it to the festival. The first night we sold about 65 pizzas, most of them were in the space of one hour, and while it was a little hectic, we pulled it all off, and everyone loved it! The second day of the festival we sold out of pizza just as the dinner break was over, and we sold our last piece of pie just before closing up, perfect timing! Sunday was a little more mellow, but still a good solid run, who says you can’t have pizza for brunch? πŸ˜‰ All told I think we made about 275 pizzas over the weekend, and 15 pies, and we managed to do it all on 4 hours of sleep each night… It was a great crowd, and a great way to kick off The Pie Place!

  2. I went all teary seeing The Pie Place come to life–concept, design, workmanship, everything so beautifully done. Congratulations.

  3. Hi Kendra and Nathan,
    I love what you are doing. This ” Baby ” took of beautifully I think. I remember you talking about it last year when I came visiting.

    What an eye candy that RED trailer – and so creatively outfitted for the job.

    Cheers and a Hug
