Tootie Pie Company, Inc. (OTCBB:TOOT) will sell its gourmet pies through its fourth Tootie Pie Gourmet Café by acquiring the former Mahaley’s Bake Shop location and assets, located at 339 East Main Street, at the corner of Main Street and Highway 87, in Fredericksburg, Texas. The newest Café is expected to be open for limited service in time for Thanksgiving.
Similar to the three other Tootie Pie Gourmet Cafés, this location will sell Tootie Pie, coffee, bagels, gourmet sandwiches, pastries and other comfort foods Monday through Thursday, 7 am until 7 pm; Friday and Saturday until 9 pm; and Sunday until 3 pm. The Company is looking for more locations in San Antonio, Austin, Houston and Dallas.
“Fredericksburg is an upscale, resort styled destination that has always been in our sights. It attracts thousands of visitors from Houston, Dallas, Austin and San Antonio,” said Don Merrill, Tootie Pie Company’s President and CEO. “Our belief is that not only will this be a successful location in its own right, but that customers will return to their respective cities and continue to be Tootie Pie customers, either by ordering online or buying them in grocery stores.”
“Our newest Café is on a high visibility corner, located right in the heart of the shopping district and yet easily accessible for locals as well,” Merrill added. “Fredericksburg has a beautiful mix of quaint hotels, bed and breakfasts, restaurants and shops and is thriving with Tootie Pie target customers.”
