Slowly but surely I’m hatching a plan to unleash my fried pies across the great land of Knoxville, Tennessee. Check back for updates about upcoming events and ways you can help launch Dale’s Fried Pies.
Thanks to the encouragement and support of some dear friends, plans are in action for the construction of my fried pie stand, and with any luck I’ll be launching it later this summer. Now that we’re gathering materials and construction will soon be under way, I’m enjoying dreaming about all the goodies I’d love to pimp my pie stand,
A few friends have encouraged me to a Kickstarter campaign, but I’ve decided not to because almost everyone I know has Kickstarter fatigue, and also because it will eventually be a for-profit (hopefully) business rather than a community, artistic or charitable endeavor, which are the kinds of projects for which I feel Kickstarter is really appropriate. However, I’m not one to turn away anyone who wants to offer support, so when a friend suggested I post a wish list of items I’d love for my pie stand, I thought I’d oblige, as it sounded like a fun way to start thinking about how I’d like the pie stand to look, and a nice way to give folks who may want to contribute the chance to support by funding concrete items instead of a general idea.
Of course, the best support is kind words of encouragement, so feel free to leave some of those! Also, if you’re a culinary dreamer, please visit the Suggest a Flavor page and leave a comment with an idea for new pie flavors you think you’d like to eat.
