Magpie and Kate's Pie Shop & Cafe team up
Kate's Pie Shop & Cafe and Magpie will join and sell pies under the Magpie name.
With her transition away from a traditional cafe setting, Kate Sullivan will re-brand her business as Kate's Great Pies, an online shop. Her pies will also be available at Magpie,126 North Madison St., in downtown Rockford. Magpie is set to open May 1.
"I don't know, I think they might be surprised and happy. We'll just be twice the fun and twice the pie... twice the desserts," said Sullivan and Stephanie Caltagerone, owner of Magpie.
On April 27, Kate’s Pie Shop closed its cafe location at the East State branch of the Rockford Public Library.
