Scott Layton
CEO, President, Founder

Meredith Layton
Founder, Director of Development

With a fondness for baking pies and a desire to share their time-honored family recipes, Scott and Meredith Layton opened the original Buttermilk Sky Pie Shop in the Bearden district of Knoxville, Tennessee in 2012.

Scott’s background in architectural engineering and 20 plus years in the construction industry and Meredith’s history of entrepreneurial and design endeavors culminated in the form of a business both could be proud of. Buttermilk Sky has made a mission of connecting the past and the present through the tradition of handmade pies. “Our goal is to provide a nostalgic experience that takes our customers back to a simpler time when made with scratch meant made with love.”
