When Miss Robbie Montgomery, a 1960s backup singer and former "Ikette," suffered a collapsed lung and had to stop singing, she decided to pour her talents into another creative venture—a soul food restaurant called Sweetie Pie's. This docuseries follows the loud, loving and often singing Montgomery family as they work to expand their empire, one soulful dish at a time. On an all-new season of Welcome to Sweetie Pie's, we see our favorite family like never before, as we follow Miss Robbie and her son, Tim, through the ups and downs of running their soul food empire.
From Tim hustling to open their very first drive-thru, to Miss Robbie heading out west and back in the studio, this close-knit family juggles the business at hand with wayward employees and celebrity guests. But in the aftermath of the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Miss Robbie and Tim have very different ideas on how to handle the civil unrest. Through it all, the entire Sweetie Pie's family serves up every situation with a perfect mix of humor, drama, heart, and especially soul.
