Detroit’s Sister Pie is pivoting from curbside takeout during the coronavirus pandemic. The beloved bakery is currently focused on directly serving its immediate neighbors with their grocery needs.
The bakery’s grocery options include flour, beans, sanitizer and other items that the bakery typically has on hand, as well as produce supplied by Cherry Capital Foods.
“I really want to be able to provide this service to the neighborhood, especially given the fact that we still have stuff that we can sell,” owner Lisa Ludwinski tells Eater Detroit.
To keep sales going, Sister Pie is also considering selling baking kits with popular Sister Pie recipes like buckwheat chocolate chip cookies, possibly bundled with the Sister Pie cookbook that was released in late 2018.
“It’s really hard to say what tomorrow will look like,” Ludwinski says about the next step for the bakery in these challenging times. “I can barely focus on what day it is right now.”
