Opening a small business in Colorado takes a lot of courage, and determination. On the bright side, this pie maker has been doing well, already, with their food truck.

Find a food truck at a Farmer's Market can be a bit of a hassle, as you have to put it on your calendar to get to a particular market, during that season. Having a brick-and-mortar location to get a great pie, is much easier.

Breads, pies and pastries will be a part of this new pie shop; many will be stopping by for a special occasion to get the "right" pie, many will be coming often, to get the great breads and pastries.

Imagine how good the shop will smell when you walk in.
