J.B.Humble Pies is a trademark name under J.B.Humble LLC, located in Washington, D.C. Jeff and I started this business late October 2019, right in our kitchen. We both are born and raised in the district. Jeff graduated from Johnson & Wales University of Charlotte and I graduated from Central Texas College.
One day we were having a conversation when we first started dating about becoming entrepreneurs and what we would like to do. Jeff told me a story about how he use to make chicken pot pies and sold the pies to his family and neighborhood friends, and how successful it was, but he didn't keep up with it becuase he wasn't focused at the time. One night, we had leftovers, curry chicken, rice and cabbage, so I mentioned to make a pie, we tried it and it was good. We made curry chicken pies and chicken pot pies the following week for our family and friends to try because we're thinking about going into the pie business. The feedback about the pies was more than enough motivation.
We started working on our business logo and name. It took us about a month to draw out the logo but we also knew we needed more on the menu, so that's when we came up with 3 savory pies (pot pie, curry pie and jerk pie) and 2 sweet pies (apple and sweet potato).
