About me | Our story
Wow! Maria Johnson the OWNER of Generations Pie Company! Talking about a dream come true! For over 30 years, I have baked pies for family and friends who would always tell me, "You should do this for a living."
Throughout the years, I learned to embrace this entrepreneurship passion inherited from my father Eddie Woods Jr. I actually learned to bake from my Grandma Hattie Leota Overton Mann who made pies from scratch using fresh ingredients. At the time, I was trying to impress a boyfriend who later became my husband Michael! Although my family is originally from Big Rock, TN, I was born and raised in Indianapolis, IN with my mother Yvonne Stovall and two sister Shari and Jan.
I graduated from Butler University with a business administration degree and an MBA from Anderson University. Although I worked as an Accountant, I took the plunge and started this company January 2016 which quickly become a hit at Market@Hague (Binford) farmers market in Indianapolis, IN. Our current locations for the summer are at the following farmers markets: Brownsburg, Carmel, Fishers, Irvington, Fortville and State House. Also pre-orders are available at our commerical kitchen GenKit.
It is with great pride and honor to share these delicious recipes from my past generations with you. I want to thank those who have paved the way before me. Most of all I give honor to God for the blessings and talent bestowed upon me to make this venture possible.
