Georgia's Sweet Potato Pie Company
Referred to by some as “not just good, but life-changing,” Georgia’s specializes in the South’s arguably favorite regional dessert: sweet potato pie. But selling delicious desserts isn’t the only way this Louisville, KY–based dessert company is impacting peoples’ lives – they run a free community library out of their brick-and-mortar site. With an eye toward early childhood education, Georgia’s Pies with Promise free community library initiative donates books to local public schools that promote “universal love, diversity, inclusion, acceptance, and youth entrepreneurship.”
