Buttermilk Sky Pie Shop, a Tennessee-based bakery chain, will open a franchise in Lafayette Aug. 27 next to Champagne’s Market in the Oil Center.
The store will be run by Andrew Lawton, stepson of Champagne’s owner Greg Champagne and son of The Kitchenary owner Beth Champagne. The new restaurant is under the “Champagne’s umbrella,” Lawton said, and will be located in the same shopping center as both businesses at 454 Heymann Blvd.
Lawton said he discovered the chain through a friend and loved them so much he wanted to open one in Lafayette.
“It’s a small franchise right now that we found out about through a mutual friend and we just love their pies, so we talked to them about franchise opportunities and now we’re opening one here in Lafayette,” Lawton said.
