Do you make Paleo, Keto, Whole 30, sugar-free, gluten-free, vegan, etc.
Has anyone else also lost track of how many new dietary preferences there are? I get calls everyday from people inquiring whether I can accommodate their specific dietary need (or make decorated sugar cookies. Decorated sugar cookies are not a dietary preference, but they are definitely not in my wheelhouse.)
One of the words we all got comfortable with at the beginning of the pandemic was "pivot". However, I got soooooooo incredibly tired of hearing that word I replaced it with "morphed". Just like every other small business owner, I found ways to morph to stay afloat. But even when you morph, you still have to have boundaries so you aren't flopping around like a fish out of water.
One of my boundaries ~ instead of constantly morphing with each new dietary preferences; I stay in my lane. That means I focus on what I'm known for/good at and look for ways to grow without venturing into unfamiliar territory. So what does that really mean?! That means I won't be offering decorated sugar cookies, sculpted cakes that look like a duck, wedding cakes, donuts, or cake pops anytime soon, but instead look for ways to grow my current offering.
But then again, maybe I should just nix everything else on the menu and simply become the Lemon Bar queen! But I know I'd be bored to tears after the first week! I discovered by accident how much I really enjoyed making the summer pies! Now I have ZERO, zilch, nada, interest in being elbow deep in a bounty of fresh berry filling for a traditional fruit or berry pie with 2 crusts! However, after I made some key lime pies I thought, "why couldn't I swap out the key lime for lemon?" And ta-da, the Lemon Strawberry Pie was born and I LOVED selecting and arranging the fruit. So I said all that to say, I'm excited to bring new seasonal show-stopping (regular & gluten-free) desserts to you in the upcoming weeks.
I'll get the website/menu update before 9pm tonight. But please be sure to read the order cut-off date and revised Memorial Day free pickup date at Pita Pit listed in each dessert description.
Happy Sunday evening!
