About the Show
When Miss Robbie Montgomery, a 1960s backup singer and former "Ikette," suffered a collapsed lung and had to stop singing, she decided to pour her talents into another creative venture—a soul food restaurant called Sweetie Pie's. At her family-centered eateries—Sweetie Pie's at the Mangrove, Sweetie Pie's Upper Crust and the Original Sweetie Pie's established in 1996 —which Miss Robbie runs with her son, Tim, both hilarity and drama are offered in equal measure.
This docuseries follows the loud, loving and often singing Montgomery family as they work to expand their empire, one soulful dish at a time. The new season begins with a crucial crossroads when the family is faced with shutting down their original restaurant: It's a flood of memories and emotions that makes this decision so difficult. And, if business isn't making his life hard enough, Tim’s relationship with fiancée Jenae has come to an end, and he's trying to navigate life as a single dad. It's a season filled with drama, as this family deals with the highs and lows of running a business—one laugh at a time.
