Gerry and Susie Wagler

Original founders of Shakespeare Pies
When Susie decided to sell some of her delicious home-baked goods at a garage sale, little did she realize that one day this little start would turn into the dynamic family business that it is today! After that original sale they as a young family began a weekend roadside stand. In 2003 they took the opportunity to move into the present location in the Shakespeare Plaza. Today we continue to rely on Susie's expertise for recipe development and quality control.

Kenton and Bethany Plett

Bethany, daughter of Gerry and Susie, has always had a love for baking and has many fond memories of spending time at Shakespeare Pies with her mother and sisters. In 2010 when Gerry and Susie were ready to take a more relaxed role in the bakery it was a natural fit for us, Kenton and Bethany, to come along side and work with them. We enjoy continuing a tradition of quality baked goods!

We do our best to recognize the needs of our co-workers, suppliers, customers, and anyone else we come in contact with and help them in any way we possibly can.

We speak highly of Shakespeare Pies to everyone we come in contact with. We are committed to keeping the secret recipes and procedures of Shakespeare Pies in our confidence.
4. Integrity
We always speak the truth. We deliver what we promise. We meet the world head-on as upright, honest and sincere business people. We are committed to integrity even if it means we do not maximize the financial reward.
5. Balance
We promote a balanced approach to life, remembering that spiritual, social, physical and family aspects are of equal or greater value then financial and intellectual. We work diligently to complete our tasks in order to provide quality time for other activities.
6. Communication
We speak positively of our fellow team members, our customers and Shakespeare Pies in both public and private. We do not use or listen to sarcasm or gossip. All personal concerns are addressed in private with the person or persons involved. In dealing with upsets we apologize first and then look for a solution. In all of our interactions we seek first to understand, then to be understood.
7. Creativity
We embrace creativity and independent thinking. Embracing change and opportunity is what brought us to where we are today and we expect it to carry us into the future. As team members we take individual responsibility for searching out a better way in order to achieve higher levels of production, quality product and customer service.
8. Systems
We always look to a system for a solution. If a challenge arises we look for a system solution before we look for a people correction. We commit to following the systems put in place until a new system is introduced. We regularly discuss system solutions as a team and do not make major or minor changes to systems without consulting the other team members that will be affected by the change.
9. Fun
We, as children of God, have joy in our hearts and we love to express it. We view life as a journey to be enjoyed and we create an atmosphere of fun and happiness so all around us enjoy it as well.
10. Consistency
We are consistent in our actions so our clients and team mates can feel comfortable in dealing with us at all times. We are disciplined in our work so our results, growth and success are consistent. We do not allow substitutions or variations that will affect product quality in our recipes or procedures.
11. Gratitude
We are always grateful for all that we have and the many opportunities that surround us. We are grateful for the privilege of working in a friendly environment and the people around us know it. We consistently catch ourselves and others doing things right. As an expression of our gratitude, we regularly celebrate our achievements and the achievements of our team members.
12. Excellence
Good enough isn’t. We always deliver products and services of exceptional quality. We consistently give more than is expected and go the extra mile. We regularly look for ways to give more with less and stay on a path of constant improvement and innovation.
