Where Is She Now?

After months of “pop up” events, Bonafide Betties Pie Company has flourished into a full-fledged boss-lady company.

Congratulations to Brittany Hardin, Founder of Bonafide Betties Pie Co. for being the WomensNet $5,000 March Business Specific Grant recipient in the category of “Restaurant, Catering and Food Service.”

Hardin hand mixes all the crusts for her pies and presses every one of them into the tins. With the Business Specific Grant, Hardin will now be able to buy more equipment to make production more efficient. “As of right now our budget only allows for the bare minimum on equipment. I am looking to buy a dough sheeter and a pie press. With these two pieces of equipment my production will increase significantly without taking away my quality,” she told us.

‘USA Today’ recognized Bonafide Betties Pie Company as “Best Pies In Texas”.

Reminder that the category of the $5,000 Business Specific Grant in April is “Sustainability”. If you applied for an Amber Grant in 2021 and your business is related to sustainability, you’re eligible to win the $5,000. If you’re going to apply in April, you’re eligible to win both the $10,000 Amber Grant as well as the $5,000 Business Specific Grant.
