Nashville’s Sweet Tooth: Full House At Recent Grand Opening!

On Saturday, June 25th, underneath a brand new illuminated sign, we cut the ribbon, and officially opened the doors of our newly remodeled pie bakery on historic Jefferson Street.

As we took our place behind the counter, we stood in awe of all the support and love extended to us that day. It was standing room only. The energy was palpable; expectations high.

Humbled, Ms. Barbara and the “Pie Man,” (Barbara Toms and Herman Patton, co-owners of Sweet Creations, LLC), shared their gratitude and vision for what Sweet Creations Pie Bakery will accomplish in the North Nashville community.

And then we started selling pies. The crowd swelled. The line extended out the door. It truly was amazing to see.  

And we have a lot of people to thank for that. During a brief program before the ribbon cutting, we had some very special guests stop by. We’d like to thank Carlina Bell Rollins, Executive Director of the Fifteenth Avenue Baptist Community Development Corporation, Audra Ladd, Mayor’s Office of Economic Development, Stephanie Harris, J.U.M.P., and Tony McLarty, Community Member and pecan pie fan, for their kind words.

And to the food writers, bloggers, and news media, thank you for taking an interest in Sweet Creations and sharing our story with the community. Links to their work are listed below:
