Our featured customer today is Jannie Teitelbaum. Jannie is owner and founder of the company "Great Lakes Pot Pies".
Jannie decided she wanted to start a food business because she's always enjoyed making food. "When trying to decide what food business I was going to start, I began asking friends what kind of food they’d want. It turned out that many people wanted better options for convenient meals since most are filled with processed chemicals. I saw an opportunity to offer all-natural, home-cooked food that people could store in the freezer and make when they need it.
As a child, I loved pot pie, so I set out to create a delicious recipe like the one I used to eat. After 6 months of trying different recipes, I made a Chicken Pot Pie for my family and my son, Steven, exclaimed when he ate it, “This is the best pot pie I have ever eaten!”, and I knew that I had the perfect recipe."

Jannie has recently started using the Birds Hill Pocket Pie manual dough press and has turned out some beautiful looking hand pies!
