Piecycle in the U District is getting a good amount of attention recently, and for good reason. They bake interesting homemade pies and deliver them to your door via bicycle. $20/full pie, $3/slice. And according to their facebook page, they have been selling out of pie a lot lately.
Why mobile over brick and mortar? I like riding my bike, and I don’t have the capital to own a brick and mortar location. Plus, pie is better enjoyed in the comfort of your home or wherever you choose.
I am so happy to see Max and Piecycle really taking off. Unlike other businesses with bike delivery (which is also cool, don’t get me wrong), Piecycle’s business model is built around the bike and cheap mobility. It’s brilliant and simple at the same time. Currently, they only deliver to the U District and adjacent neighborhoods, but say they are looking to expand.
Good work, Max! Now, to the rest of you, let’s get more stuff like this going.
