This is how it is being done, folks. Close your eyes, think of downtown Rocky Mount and one of our many historic architectural buildings. When you open your eyes, read this announcement from the East Durham Pie Company
Signing a lease is a big commitment, as this will be our new home for years to come, so it was really important to make sure it would be a space that would suit our needs now and as we grow. The location has room for both indoor and outdoor seating and for an open kitchen that will allow everyone who walks through the doors to see what we’re working on. It has big windows that let in plenty of light, and even in its current state, it’s easy to see how it will be a warm and cozy place.
So the big reveal… East Durham Pie Co. will soon be located at 406 South Driver Street, in a lovely turn of the century building in Old East Durham.
The building is already under construction and moving along quickly at that! There’s a lot that still needs to go into it, but we hope that with hard work and some luck we’ll be able to open our doors this summer.
I couldn’t resist sharing this with all of you on Main Street. We have businesses downtown that started just like this; with a dream and a belief in the future of Rocky Mount. Here is a glimpse of a small business at the beginning of their dream. When I saw the photograph of this wonderful turn of the century building that has been waiting to be useful again, I could see the May Gorham building in our downtown with its doors open for pie and coffee, or maybe a great milkshake at the counter; who knows what else someone will dream up for this space. The word preservation is music to our ears, right? I lift my glass of sweet tea to the future of the East Durham Pie Company in their new restored building. Hope we get as lucky as Durham, NC and can meet one day in a place like this for a great piece of pie.
