A Warning: Sweetie Pie's Bakery In Northville, Mi

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I had posted a while ago about Sweetie Pie's Bakery in Northville Michigan, although they do business elsewhere in Michigan having a complete gluten free line.

Their pizza dough was fantastic but had a strong similarity to Sami's down in Florida which is not gluten-free.

I had it once and felt great....they had a lot of gluten-free products including a good sub flat bread made similarly to the pizza dough. Well I got sick once after eating and wrote them a letter regarding their gluten-free preperations.

They said they setup a 2nd counter for making gluten-free subs and even had gluten-free Wednesdays where everything was cleaned the night before and no gluten containing products were used until all the gluten-free stuff was done. They went a step further and said they are opening a dedicated gluten-free bakery in Livonia, MI.

Well I got sick a 2nd time but could not solely contribute it to them. Third time however did it.

I simply said I would not order anything from them. I started to hear rumors and rumblings about a high change over rate and people not being paid.

I heard rumors of possible filings with the Michigan board of labor.

We hired them to cater an event for us that we needed to cancel. They owed us a $300 refund which after a few emails never to this day has shown. They owe money to a few local businesses that I know.

Still thats all conjecture until last week. The Wayne County Sheriff's department evicted them out of their Northville location due to a nonpayment of rent, for 8 months, the entire time they were open.

Secondly the city was ready to pull their business permit because they were not providing proper contact information to the city as far as their residence.

So my business is going to file a claim in small claims to get my money back but all the fishy stories finally added up and I personally would not trust anything they produce.

They have other locations and apparently according to them had deals with the local Hiller's and other grocery stores to sell their gluten-free products.

We'll see if Hiller's has anything and I've already contract our attorney in regards to if the state or the FDA has any rules for labeling a product gluten-free.

I have read postings on craigslist about that bakery. People have posted do not apply there because she doesn't pay you and treats her employers badly. I also heard that her "homemade" pies are not homemade at all. She uses stuff out of cans. There is always an ad on craigslist looking for employees. I also heard that the place is nasty. You wouldn't want to eat there. It hasn't been cleaned in a while since she has a high turnover rate. I have not heard anything good about this company.

The place is spotless, that I can say. I've been through the entire facility.

The food was excellent, no doubts.
