The bakery will be located at 200 Shroyer Road, at the Wilmington Pike/Shroyer Road intersection. The space previously housed AAA Stripping and Refinishing, but it has been vacant for several years.

Partial to Pie has leased the space and took possession at the end of January.

“We are planning a retail bakery that will provide both dine-in and carry-out services, specializing in pies, quiche and sweet treats,” Clark said.

Partial to Pie’s bakers have been baking for festivals and special events for several years, and have always hoped to “make this passion a full time career,” Clark said. “I also graduated from Sinclair through their entrepreneurship program because business has always been an interest of mine.”

“We will be working with local growers, makers and suppliers to further support our local community. Also we will focus on using organic and natural ingredients when feasible,” Clark said.
