‘WELCOME TO SWEETIE PIE’S’ HEADS TO MEMPHIS 

Miss Robbie Expands the Family Restaurant Business With a New Location on Historic Beale Street.

Los Angeles, CA – Acclaimed soul food chef and Sweetie Pie’s restaurant owner Miss Robbie Montgomery returned to OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network on Saturday, July 12 at 9pm ET/PT for another lively season of the Pilgrim Studios-produced, NAACP Image Award-winning docu-series “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s.”

In an all-new season, Miss Robbie and her son, Tim, prepare to expand their restaurant empire beyond St. Louis with a new location on historic Beale Street in Memphis, Tennessee. Getting the restaurant together is no easy task as they prepare to renovate the new location and find staff to train in time for the summer rush. Meanwhile, back in St. Louis, Tim struggles with planning the move to Memphis while continuing to manage the local restaurants, and hires a new district manager, Ma’ri, who quickly implements change and starts ruffling the staff’s feathers. As if Miss Robbie’s plate wasn’t full enough, she’s also moving ahead with launching her new Sweetie Pie’s Sweet Tea line. It’s all systems go as this family works hard to expand their brand – one recipe at a time.

When talking about her new restaurant in Memphis, Sweetie Pie’s owner and co-manager Miss Robbie said,

“You are never too old to stop dreaming and it truly is an honor to be invited to open up my next Sweetie Pie’s restaurant on historic Beale Street in Memphis. I used to play in Memphis all the time during my days as an Ikette, and it’s great to be helping bring African American-owned businesses back to an area that has such significance to our community.”

Officially declared the “Home of the Blues,” Beale Street has served as a popular performance destination for blues and jazz musicians, including legends such as B.B. King (originally known as “Beale Street Blues Boy”), Louis Armstrong, Muddy Waters and Memphis Minnie. The new location is also home to the popular Beale Street Music Festival, the launch event for a month of local festivities known as “Memphis in May.” In keeping with the musical tradition of the area, the new Sweetie Pie’s restaurant will feature a performance stage in addition to Sweetie Pie’s staples like Miss Robbie’s famous macaroni & cheese, pear cobbler, chicken wings and new Sweetie Pie’s Sweet Tea. The new restaurant is scheduled to open later this summer.
