Happy Pi Day! Today is 3/14 or 3.14 for the Mathematicians.
Johnson City is about to welcome a new pie shop this spring with the opening of Buttermilk Sky Pie Shop.
Buttermilk Sky is a bakery that specializes in all things pie. From classics like buttermilk and pecan to mini pies, this pie shop offers it all.
The shop promoted itself for Pie Day by having a contest to win free pie for life. The winner, Doris Hendrix, was announced today at 3:14 p.m. (more Pi Day fun!)
Contestants had to sign up for “Pie News” email from Buttermilk Sky.
This was one of several giveaways the shop has done to promote itself. All winners have been promised to receive their prizes when Buttermilk Sky opens. Other prizes awarded include single pies and mini pies.
The Johnson City location hasn’t announced its official opening yet, but it has begun accepting employee applications and working on the shop location.
Buttermilk Sky was originally opened in Knoxville, Tennessee, in 2012 by Scott and Meredith Layton.
Now, the pie shop is in five locations including three Tennessee shops, one in Georgia and another in Texas. The Johnson City shop will be the sixth location.
Buttermilk Sky Pie Shop will bring a new sweet variety to the Tri-Cities area. Check out its Facebook.
