Yes, 1st May 2014, some 5 years ago, saw us enter the market for Expat comfort food in Jakarta and its surrounding areas, initially with a small range of just 5 very traditional and mostly English pies.
Since then our range of pies has been expanded to 18 flavours, from our roots in those traditional meat pies to our popular Asian fusion pies, on to those steady sellers our 5 fruit pie flavours and thence to our delicious Ready to Microwave raviolis. The recent addition of a small range of bacon and sausage products from Porkies Bali has served to increase our coverage of the comfort foods most prized by expatriates and we expect to finally round out our range this year with sausage rolls, curry puffs and home-made chips (crisps.) Watch this space!
We look forward to continue serving our customers by offering our range of quality products at very fair prices. Thank you to all of our customers for their support over the last 5 years, we look forward to continuing to serve you over the next 5 years – and longer.
Best regards from Santi and the (very small) team at Santi’s Premium Pies!!
Yes, it is our 4th Birthday today after four years of what can only be described as fun!
I have met so many good people, developed the pie and pasta products, delivered more than 2,000 orders, skilled up my staff, become a total expert in the Gojek App and berated my husband for getting invoices wrong occasionally – who could ask for more?!
There have of course been downsides, including badly behaved puff pastry, a 4kg batch of steak and kidney being left out overnight and having to be thrown away and, last but not least, the decimation of our customer base by the downturn in oil and metals prices two years or so ago.
One thing where we are pleased to say there has been NO downside is bad debts, with every one of those order being settled, the great majority on time and this despite most of them being on “transfer after delivery” terms.
So, thank you so much to all who have supported us over those four years, we hope to continue to serve you into the future.
Kind regards, Santi xxx
PS pies always go best with a little gravy!!
Yes, we baked our first pie on this day just two years ago and, to wheel out that well-worn cliché once again, it feels just like yesterday!
We have had lots of things to overcome over that time, not least around getting our delivery system reliable, and the team has with hard work and inspiration consistently overcome all those problems and developed the products to what are now, we and many of our customers believe, the best pies in Jakarta.
So thanks to Anis and Uus in the kitchen, Pak Iwan on his motor, my lovely husband on his computer and most importantly, the support of you, the customer, for bringing Santi’s Premium Pies to where it is today.
Onwards to our 25,000th pie!!
Happy New Year to all our customers – and thank you for you support during 2015 – and we promise you some exciting new developments in 2016!!
