Buttermilk Sky Pie opened their new Franklin location at 5050 Carothers Parkway (next to Juice Bar and Chicken Salad Chick) at the end of April. This weekend, the pie shop is celebrating its new location with a grand opening event. Friday, June 7, the grand opening festivities will begin with a ribbon cutting at 11 am. Saturday, June 8, the first 50 customers will receive a 4-inch pie each month for a year with purchase. Throughout the weekend, 20 percent of all sales will go to nonprofit Franktown Open Hearts.
Buttermilk Sky Pie opened a location on Cool Springs Blvd in early 2016 but that location closed in 2018.
Owners of the new Franklin shop are Ken and Chris Smith who also opened a Murfreesboro location at 2314 Medical Center Parkway in September 2018.
Buttermilk Sky Pie was founded by Scott and Meredith Layton who took memories and entrepreneurial dreams in the form of a pie shop. They currently own and operate the original Buttermilk Sky Pie Shop in Knoxville, Tennessee, baking the time-honored family recipes of grandmothers Ruth and Edith. According to the website, there are 18 pie shops currently operating or to open in 2019.
In addition to full-size pies, you can also get mini pies, which are enough to feed two people. You’ll also find gift items, greeting cards, and platters.
Hours for the store are Monday – Saturday, 10 a – 8 p. Follow Buttermilk Sky Pie on Facebook for the latest updates.
