As a pie shop, our mission is to make the best quality of pies for our community to enjoy & to give youth at risk a first chance employment.
Making pie is a mix of art and science all wrapped up in the feeling of family and home. At The Long I Pie Shop, we believe that our pies are an art that you can consume. The Long I Pie Shop bakes our pie in cast iron skillets which makes the crust extra buttery, flaky, and delicious. You'll love it! We use both family recipes like Grandma's Spiced Apple Cranberry Pie and experimental recipes that we've developed in our own kitchen such as The Honey Flower.
As a business, we not only want to give the community we are working in delicious pie, but we want to contribute socially as well. The Long I Pie Shop partners with local non-profits to hire youth at risk of homelessness, exploitation, incarceration, etc. to give them a first chance at employment. We believe that through a 6 month to a year employment program that addresses everything from hygiene to customer service skills to resume writing and interviewing all incapsulated in love and belief in our employees that the youth in our program will succeed and hopefully start businesses of their own someday.
