Mission Pie is proudly a for-profit business that is strongly driven by values of fairness and thoughtfulness. Our goal is to offer great food made with conscientiously –sourced ingredients in styles and at prices that make the food accessible to a broad demographic. We also want all our customers to have a delightful experience of being seen, heard and nourished. We believe that productive and profitable businesses are a critical part of a thriving community. We believe in compensating fairly and offering the highest level of benefits possible – we began offering health insurance in our second year of business when we had only a dozen employees, and vacation pay and retirement benefits soon thereafter. We take care of our relationships with farmers and distributors who we work with, and value the longevity and deepening of these relationships over the seasons. We have working relationships with several non-profit organizations and host their clients as interns at Mission Pie, with a shared goal of supporting marginalized youth and adults in overcoming barriers to work.
We count it as one of the great successes that Mission Pie attracts and receives very different people with a range of backgrounds who, were it not for sharing a workplace, would likely not cross paths and forge the deep friendships that they do.
