Carolyn G. Berke, Founder, Niles Pie
Carolyn started Niles Pie in Union City, which has become not only a successful pie shop and café but also has retail sales, classes, dinners, and catering. Carolyn believes deeply in people, in a just society and economy, and in making things work. Combining food, community and satisfying work was the original goal in starting Niles Pie, and the next logical step for Carolyn was employee ownership. With guidance from Project Equity, Niles Pie successfully transitioned to a worker-owned cooperative in 2017, becoming the first cooperative on the 880 corridor.
