Thank You.

A message from Dale:

'Tis the season to be thankful, and boy howdy, I am.  In July of this year, Dale's Fried Pies was just a dream.  I knew I loved making and sharing my pies, but the idea of starting a business from scratch felt scary and overwhelming.  I knew I wanted to move forward, though, so I started a little website stating my dream, and I shared it with a few friends.  Donations started coming, as did words of encouragement and offers for everything from legal help to manual labor.  A month later Dale's Fried Pies officially opened.  It has been just as scary and overwhelming as I imagined, but it has also been extremely rewarding, fun and educational.  I love making and selling these pies. So much.

I'm tearing up as I write this.  I am so thankful to those of you who believed in me from the very beginning.  Your support, in all of its beautiful forms, was just what I needed to take the leap forward and follow a dream.  I am thankful for those of you who I have met in the process- my lovely customers, my cheerleaders, my advisors and my fellow mobile food vendors in Knoxville. There are far too many of you to list, and that is something for which I am very, very grateful.
