But that doesn’t mean that Paul hasn’t had his
fears for the business, nor his concerns for his
fellow business owners.
“It’s just terrible, ‘cause I know how much work
goes into it,” he said. “People put their life savings
into it and you know, when things are going good,
it’s still hard and it’s a hard business and now you
have these things that you can’t control. It’s just
Paul said he now cooks pies for both locations
out of his Kennesaw kitchen, which is much bigger
than his kitchen on the Square, to say the least.
“I think the Square space is like 900 square
feet, and this is like 4,500 square feet. I’m probably
making over 200 hundred pot pies a day. Can you
imagine making that many pies out of my shop on
the Square?” Paul said, with a laugh.
So far, because business has been good, Paul
said he hasn’t had to layoff any of his four employees,
but he also still does most of the chopping and
cooking himself. He recently became USDA
certified, so he hopes to begin selling his pot pies
out of other stores but wants to stick to his own
model of Mom and Pop stores. He also will be able
to start shipping his pies.
“I won’t make it 20 more years, but hopefully
another 10 years,” he said. “But I’m really excited
about this USDA thing and I think it’s really going
to propel business. And I think even after this,
people are still going to want to keep buying
takeout food. But once all of this is over with the
virus, I sure hope people will go out and support
the restaurants because they have to stay alive and
keep their employees. There’s so many hourly
employees, and who knows if you even get all of
them back? There’s gotta be 30 restaurants now on
the Square, not counting the Marietta Square
Market. But I hope we all do what we can to
support each other and do what it takes to help
each other survive.”
