About Bonita' Southern Style Sweet Potato Pies
Bonita Carlisle, CEO/President. Bonita was inspired to start the business over 10 years ago when she began giving out her sweet potato pie samples at work. The response was overwhelming! Soon she came up with the name "Bonita's Southern Style Sweet Potato Pies" and the tagline "Oh Taste and See it's Good"! She was then given opportunities to share her pies in Kroger’s Grocery stores for Black History Month, Guest Speak on a television news channel on the topic of Entrepreneurship, and was featured in a program focused on “Ordinary Women with Extraordinary Gifts and Talents”.
Bonita had the passion for baking pies early on. Her recipe started with her grandmother Johnsiree Carlisle of Mississippi, but she made a few changes and put her on twist on it over the years. She also had her father as an inspiration. He made pies in a bakery in Mississippi, so baking came naturally to her. For Bonita, her pies are all about the heart. The key is love and passion.
Bonita’s Southern Style Sweet Potato Pies have a unique, distinct, stunning taste admired by those who are truly experienced when it comes to artisan baking. For Bonita, it’s rewarding to know everyone from all cultures can experience Bonita’s Southern Style Sweet Potato Pies.
