LINCOLN SQUARE — The owners of popular bakery Hoosier Mama Pie closed their Lincoln Square location after two years in the neighborhood.
Hoosier Mama Pie Company, 4613 N. Lincoln Ave., closed over the weekend. A company representative said in an Instagram message the location is closed but did not answer further questions.
Owners Paula Haney and Craig Siegelin could not immediately be reached for comment. Calls to the West Town and Evanston shops were not returned Tuesday.
“Thank you Lincoln Square for 2 years of fun. We enjoyed making pies for you. Unfortunately, we have had to make the tough decision to close. We will miss seeing you and being a part of your lovely neighborhood. Please [visit] us in Evanston and West Town,” the owners posted in a message on their website.
Haney and Siegelin opened their first Hoosier Mama Pie Company location in 2009 at 1618 ½ W. Chicago Ave. in West Town.
They expanded to another location by partnering with The Dollop Coffee & Tea Co. to open locations in Lincoln Square and suburban Evanston.
Haney grew up in Indianapolis and started baking pies at a young age with her mother. As an adult, she refined her baking skills baking professionally at restaurants before deciding to open up her own pie shop, according to the Indy Star.
