Wow! Maria Johnson the OWNER of Generations Pie Company! Talking about a dream come true! For over 30 years, I have baked pies for family and friends who would always tell me, "You should do this for a living."
Throughout the years, I learned to embrace this entrepreneurship passion inherited from my father Eddie Woods Jr. I actually learned to bake from my Grandma Hattie Leota Overton Mann who made pies from scratch using fresh ingredients. At the time, I was trying to impress a boyfriend who later became my husband Michael! Although my family is originally from Big Rock, TN, I was born and raised in Indianapolis,IN with my mother Yvonne Stovall and two sister Shari and Jan.
I graduated from Butler University with a business administration degree and an MBA from Anderson University. Although I worked as an Accountant, I took the plunge and started this company January 2016 which quickly become a hit at Market@Hague farmers market in Indianapolis, IN. We currently plan to expand the company and sell our products at the Fishers Farmers Market in Fishers, IN.
It is with great pride and honor to share these delicious recipes from my past generations with you. I want to thank those who have paved the way before me. Most of all I give honor to God for the blessings and talent bestowed upon me to make this venture possible.
