Growing up, Joe was surrounded by the sights, smells, tastes and feels of working in the kitchen with his mother, who was a home economics teacher. For years he has reminisced and dreamed of sharing his love for homemade pie with the Lakeland community, but raising his family and working his full-time career kept him too busy to start a passion-project. That is, until now! After testing and perfecting homemade classics and developing the ideal pie crust, Joe has introduced Beacon Hill Pies to the Lakeland Farmers’ Curb Market on Saturday mornings!
What is your business? We’ve perfected a handful of classic pie recipes and wrapped them in our flaky, all-butter, signature crust that’s baked just right. You can find us in our brand new home at the Lakeland Curbside Market!
Who are your clients? People of all walks of life love and buy our pie.
What are your short-term goals? At this point, we’re focusing on quality. We have worked very hard to make our crust and products the best they can be. We think that will lead to opportunities for growth and offer our community something valuable.
What are some business wins? Getting to hear the stories of our customers’ experiences with our pies. It usually takes them back to their fond childhood memories.
How has Catapult helped you? We clearly couldn’t do what we are attempting to accomplish without Catapult. It has equipped us for success and given us the tools we would not have had the opportunity to use. We’re grateful.
Why Lakeland? Lakeland is home. I was born here, grew up here, and have raised my family here. I would challenge anyone to name a place better than Lakeland in terms of what it offers, community spirit, and location!
What is your Secret Sauce? Our secret sauce is our process to make our crust so that it’s consistent every time. If I told you, it wouldn’t be a secret anymore!
