#71 — Pie, Female Founders + Family Business w/ Bradly Hall

Bradly Hall, owner of ‘Savary Island Pie Company’, chats with Steph this week and shares the courageous story of how his Mom, Eileen, founded a baking business out of necessity over 30 years ago. The ‘Savary Island Pie Company’ started from humble of beginnings, but allowed Eileen to survive as a single mother, and to emerge from poverty as a female business owner. 


The company continues to thrive in it’s second brick and mortar location on Marine Drive, just across the street from its original store front beside ‘Bean Around the World’, where Eileen enjoyed an strong cup of coffee with her slice of pie. Although Eileen has given the reigns of the business over to family, her legacy remains, and her perfectly flawed (and controversial) reheating instruction remain on the pie boxes today.


Keep an eye out for the Savary Island Pie Company’s second location opening in Tofino this summer.
