Tootie Pie Company, Inc. (OTCBB:TOOT) will sell its gourmet pies in the newest Tootie Pie Gourmet Café, located in the prestigious “The Shops at Starwood” shopping center in Frisco, Texas. This will be the first Café in the Dallas, TX area.
Similar to the four 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. This location is expected to be open for pie and coffee in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. The Company is looking for more locations in San Antonio, Austin, Houston and Dallas.
“We have a growing but underserved base of loyal fans in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, and when the opportunity to obtain a fully functional, ready to go, turn key operation in Frisco, Texas appeared, we felt compelled to act,” said Don Merrill, Tootie Pie Company’s President and CEO.
“We envision Tootie Pie Gourmet Cafés in Austin and Houston as well and will be on the lookout for opportunities like this one,” Merrill added. “Ideally, we envision 4 or 5 locations in each of these major metropolitan areas to create enough Café critical mass in each market, thus helping to ensure success and, of course, sell more Tootie Pie!”
“The addition of Tootie Pies to The Shops at Starwood exemplifies our quest to add award winning, one-of-a-kind tenant experience to our center,” said Kirk Hermansen, owner of the shopping center. “We are genuinely excited to have a concept of the caliber and legendary history of the Tootie Pie Company select ‘The Shops at Starwood’ for its first location in the D/FW area,” he added.
