Patricke’ is not what you would think of when you think of your average baker. He did not go to culinary school to make pies and it was not his lifelong goal to be known for his famous sweet potato pies. Patricke’ was working in loss prevention in Stockton and making the white sweet potato pies for family and friends at potlucks and holiday gatherings. He never dreamed that he would be able to make a living at doing something that he loved so much, until his friends and family encouraged him to turn his passion into his career.
With a little push from his mother-in-law, Patricke’ took the plunge and secured a business license for Patrick’s Famous Pies. He started with his old family recipe that he has learned from his mother as he grew up and tweaked it a bit to get the recipe he uses today. Patricke’ started making pies in every spare moment for some extra cash until the business grew enough that he makes pies full-time for his loyal Customers.
10 years later today, Patricks Famous Pies is still going strong. He travels doing festivals 48 weekends a year to many different cities and states selling his famous white sweet potato pies, peach cobblers and sweet potato breads.
Patricks Famous Pies will soon launch their first restaurant in Vallejo, CA (1524 Sonoma Blvd) where these items will be available for purchase.
