I just wanted to give everyone an update on what is going on in the world of Scissortail Savories and Sweets.
First, I want to say thank you to all my awesome customers who have kept this operation alive over the past five months. It’s hard to believe that I’ve only been in business for five months, but it also feels like just yesterday that I decided to take the plunge and put something amazing into the world. I can’t thank you enough for being a part of it.
So, what is in store for the future?
Right now I am building a commercial kitchen that will be my base of operations going forward. It’s next door to the house my husband and I just bought, which is also under construction. Given how much work is left to be done and how long the permitting process takes, I can only guess at when Scissortail will be fully up-and-running, but I will be optimistic and say this September.
Having a commercial kitchen will allow me to not only to provide you with more consistent, efficiently-created products, but also to supply retailers (coffee shops, restaurants, etc.) with my pies and such, so more people can experience this thing that I love so much. I’ll also be implementing a quick and reliable delivery system so you can get your pastries with as little inconvenience as possible. I appreciate all your patience while I figure things out!
In the mean time, while not swinging a hammer and getting stung by scorpions at the new place (ouch!), I’ll be spreading my wings by traveling and catching up with friends and family. It’s sort of like that backpacking trip you’re supposed to take between high school and college…. you do some stuff you’ve never done and see some places you’ve never seen and come back with a fresh perspective.
As part of my travels, I’ll be staying in Chicago for five weeks studying Chicago-style improv at the iO Theatre. I can’t tell you how excited I am to see improv in a whole new light! And see a Cubs game at Wrigley Field! And live next to Lake Michigan! And use public transportation! And spend part of the summer away from the blazing Texas sun!
All of this, of course, means I won’t be taking orders for a while. But over the next few months, I’ll be sharing the progress we’ve made with blog posts and pictures here and on the Scissortail Facebook page. So keep checking back! Your support and encouragement really goes a long way!
Here’s to the future!
All the best,
Karen Jane DeWitt
