Niles Pie celebrates five years in current location
Submitted By Carolyn Berke
Niles Pie Company is an artisanal worker-owned bakery in Union City that specializes in handmade seasonal pie and pastry with fresh, local produce. In business since 2010, they opened their retail location in the Dowe Business Park on Alvarado-Niles Road in the spring of 2013. In the summer of 2017, they changed their business model from being a sole proprietorship to a worker-owned cooperative, and have continued to grow and expand their business. In addition to their retail shop, they sell at farmersÕ markets from Oakland to San Jose, host monthly dinners and regular baking and cooking classes, and provide pie and pastry to East Bay and Silicon Valley companies. They are deeply committed to their support of local non-profit organizations, particularly those that directly support local people and families in need.
Niles Pie is celebrating the beginning of their sixth year in the Dowe Business Park, and looking forward to the next five years, by throwing a celebration and pie party on Saturday, April 7. If you havenÕt figured out where their shop is yet, now is the time to seek them out! TheyÕve been transforming their bakery and retail space over the past five years into a bright and welcoming haven for local pie lovers. ThereÕs a comfy couch, a giant communal table, plenty of reading material, and free Wi-Fi. Chalkboards change around with various talented customers drawing their love for pie and community. At the celebration, there will be more chalkboards and plenty of colored chalk for artists of all ages to leave their marks too. There will be live music and promotions and specials, perhaps a giveaway or two.
Niles Pie wants to thank the local community for the strong support theyÕve given the business in their first five years in Union City, and to celebrate the promise of their future growth and commitment to the community. If the weather cooperates weÕll bring our party into the parking lot. WeÕll have a pie-eating contest for kids Ð and maybe for the grownups too. Prizes, treats, and all the happiness that pie brings will be the order of the day!
