You Are Never Too Old: #Sweetie Pie’s returns to OWN
Miss Robbie Montgomery and her family are returning to OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network tonight July 12 at 9pm ET/PT for another lively season of the Pilgrim Studios-produced, NAACP Image Award-winning docu-series “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s.” I have been watching this since its inception. Not just because it is programming from my girl Oprah, friend in my head, as Wendy Williams so aptly calls it. It is actually entertaining and no one is slapping anyone around as the case is on most reality programs today. But probably I like it because it reinforces the idea that you are never too old to go for what you want.
In an all-new season, Miss Robbie and her son, Tim, prepare to expand their restaurant empire beyond St. Louis with a new location on historic Beale Street in Memphis, Tennessee. Getting the restaurant together is no easy task as they prepare to renovate the new location and find staff to train in time for the summer rush. Meanwhile, back in St. Louis, Tim struggles with planning the move to Memphis while continuing to manage the local restaurants, and hires a new district manager, Ma’ri, who quickly implements change and starts ruffling the staff’s feathers. As if Miss Robbie’s plate wasn’t full enough, she’s also moving ahead with launching her new Sweetie Pie’s Sweet Tea line. It’s all systems go as this family works hard to expand their brand – one recipe at a time.
When talking about her new restaurant in Memphis, Sweetie Pie’s owner and co-manager Miss Robbie said, “You are never too old to stop dreaming and it truly is an honor to be invited to open up my next Sweetie Pie’s restaurant on historic Beale Street in Memphis. I used to play in Memphis all the time during my days as an Ikette, and it’s great to be helping bring African American-owned businesses back to an area that has such significance to our community.”
