A note from our founders

When we opened our first Buttermilk Sky Pie Shop, we never knew how rewarding pies could be.

Pies connect people to past memories and the love they’ve experienced in their lives. Older men shuffle in alone and quietly savor each bite of their pie, remembering the pies their wives used to make. Women smile wistfully and say how our pies taste like their mother’s pie that they remember from so long ago, pies they could never quite replicate. With a simple concoction of butter, sugar, eggs, and love people instantly travel back to happy times in their lives where they were surrounded with love. That taste of homemade pie makes those memories come to life, even if it is just for a fleeting moment.

We invite you to join us in sharing the love of pie across the country.

– Scott & Meredith Layton; Founders


Buttermilk Sky Pie Shop

The Buttermilk Sky Pie Shop was born out of the love for family. The husband and wife team of Scott and Meredith Layton grew up in their grandmothers’ kitchens. The memories of Scott’s Granny and Meredith’s Nanny inspired the creation of the Buttermilk Sky Pie Shop which offers delicious pies and other handmade desserts in a unique and warm environment based on their southern traditions and heritage.

The Menu

Our bakeries offer delicious scratch-made pies in four and nine inch sizes from a 1,000 square foot bakery. Traditional pies like Southern Custard, Coconut Cream, Granny’s Apple, I-40 Pecan, Key Lime, Chewy Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Cream, and Peanut Butter Cream are served year round. Made-from-scratch Thumbprint cookies, Cloud 9 (our take on pie a-la-mode), and unique dessert gift solutions provide the perfect dessert destination.

simple and rewarding

Buttermilk Sky Pie Shop has grown into a simple to operate and rewarding franchise concept. Our local “shops” offer our homemade pies and desserts in a unique, warm environment based on southern hospitality and heritage. Visiting a Buttermilk Sky Pie Shop takes you back to a time when pies were made from scratch. From the white-washed walls to unique gifting solutions sold “in the cupboard”, Buttermilk Sky Pie Shop gives you the nostalgic experience of southern traditions when pies were made with love.
