Pie Contest

October 10, 2017

It was a last minute challenge.  Our sales team, always competitive and can't resist a contest, especially with each other.  Every other day the gauntlet is thrown down in the office by someone in the office and you hear the words "Challenge Accepted".  Just as we think the week will end quietly, someone feigned hunger and thus our Pie contest was borne.   With only a weekend+ to prep word had to spread quickly.  

 

Monday came and so did the pies, a counter full of delicious pies and fevered calls for taste my pie, vote for my pie, we hadn't really thought through the voting process.  Needless to say it was one of our more delicious challenges.
