Owners, Love's Custard Pies
Love’s Custard Pies offers 26 varieties of delectable custard pies from the Love’s family favorite recipes, including chess, pumpkin, sweet potato, beer nut chess and a featured pie-of-the month.
Visitors to Detroit’s Eastern Market and other Detroit local markets line up to purchase and sample Love’s Custard Pies. Chef Andrew Zimmern of Bizaare Foods has described Love’s pies as the best pie he’s ever eaten.
Funds from LaunchDETROIT were used to purchase inventory and develop new pies including savory shepherd’s pie, french dip pie, and steak & potato pie—resulting in increased sales. Catering is also available for weddings, corporate and other special events.
LaunchDetroit helped us with our business plan and learn more about how to conduct business. They’ve also been very supportive with mentorship and we want to continue a long relationship with Rotary.
