After former Ikette Robbie Montgomery found out she could no longer sing, she took her mother’s soul food recipes passed down through the generations and created the empire known as “Sweetie Pie’s,” St. Louis’ iconic and wildly popular soul food restaurant run by Miss Robbie and her dynamic family. Now with two thriving locations, a third location recently underway, a wedding to plan for her son Tim and his fiancé Jenae, and two grandsons to tend to, Miss Robbie is struggling to keep up with the demands between business and family. Meanwhile, her son Tim has his hands full juggling his new role as sole restaurant manager, aspiring rapper and life as a new dad. “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s” follows the loud, loving and still very musical Montgomery family as they struggle with expanding their family-owned business and creating a legacy to pass on to future generations, one soulful dish at a time.
