Some recent news and notes from around Fremont…
- Seattest interviewed the owners of Pie, Renee Steen and Jess Whitsitt, who shared their thoughts on why they chose to open their store in Fremont:
Well Renee is from the Bay Area but she’s always been drawn to Fremont and I’ve been around Fremont a lot, almost my whole life. My mom lives about two blocks up the street and we just kind of like the eclectic-ness of it. Also, the business community is really great. We have the best chamber of commerce ever and Jessica [Vets, Executive Director] that runs the chamber is great. It’s just really homey here. [Renee]: They all walk around and say ‘hi Pie lady’ you know? It’s just a great group, I love the feel here.
