Maplewood Businesses in the News: Pie Oh My! and Food Trucks
Maplewood loves food news, and it seems St. Louis loves food news from Maplewood.
Two Maplewood food-related topics have grabbed attention lately: food trucks and pies.
Everyone seems to like fresh-baked pies – can't say the same for food trucks.
Patch reported that Jane Callahan is moving her pie bakery to Sutton Boulevard in Pie Bakery Coming Soon to Maplewood: Nothing Canned, Nothing Frozen.
St. Louis food magazine, Sauce, reported on Pie Oh My! moving to Maplewood:
"Callahan recently signed the lease on a space in Maplewood. And while she declined to give the exact address, she did note that it was on Sutton Avenue, adding that she looked at spaces throughout the central corridor, ultimately choosing Maplewood because it was a 'supportive, inviting business community.'"
Patch updated the Maplewood food truck controversy in Maplewood Council Member Missed Meeting, States Food Truck Position on Facebook, on June 21 and Food Trucks in Maplewood: Council Member Says Events Might be the Right Place, on June 18 are the most recent articles on Patch about food trucks.
The Riverfront Times summarized the various positions on food trucks on the city council, then stated:
"While this might not have been fascinating fodder for the twelve people present at the council meeting, the public response has been a little more lively -- and continues to get spicier with the addition of a statement made by Shawn Faulkingham, the absent council member, in the classiest way possible, via his Facebook wall."
The next city council meeting is Tuesday, and Faulkingham may raise the topic.
