Jun. 3, 2010 (Business Wire) — Tootie Pie Company, Inc. (OTCBB:TOOT) announced that it is rolling out its new coffee and iced tea at its two Tootie Pie Gourmet Cafés.
“Choosing just the right blend of coffee and tea to serve with Tootie Pie is a serious undertaking,” said Don Merrill, President & CEO. “We called on several purveyors of fine coffee and teas, tasting and testing various blends and varieties. We then tested these blends in our Cafés, soliciting customer feedback all along the way. I am happy to announce that we have made our selections.”
“A special Latin American blend will be called ‘Poquito De San Antonio,’ because we think it reflects the flavor of our city. In other words, it’s a little bit of San Antonio in a cup,” said Merrill.
He added, “Our iced tea blend will be called ‘Texas Champagne’ in a nod to the special place a good iced tea holds for anyone who lives in or visits the Lone Star State.”
“I know it has been tough to be in South Texas and not have iced tea,” joked Merrill. “Fortunately, we made it just in time for those long hot summer months. We trust it will be worth the wait, and we appreciated our customers’ patience through this and other changes we’ve made to whip our Cafés into shape.”
“With pie,” said Merrill, “the right coffee blends were especially important. Likewise, with our famous chicken salad, another main attraction at the two Tootie Pie Cafés, the iced tea could not be subpar! We waited for just the right blends to emerge, and they are now available both at 2339 E. Evans Road off of 281 North and 16615 Huebner at Bitters.”
