Acclaimed soul food chef and Sweetie Pie’s restaurant owner Miss Robbie Montgomery and her family are returning to OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network on TONIGHT (Saturday, July 12) at 9 p.m. for another lively season of the NAACP Image Award-winning docu-series Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s.

In an all-new season, Miss Robbie and her son, Tim, prepare to expand their restaurant empire beyond St. Louis with a new location on historic Beale Street in Memphis, Tennessee.  Getting the restaurant together is no easy task as they prepare to renovate the new location and find staff to train in time for the summer rush.  Meanwhile, back in St. Louis, Tim struggles with planning the move to Memphis while continuing to manage the local restaurants, and hires a new district manager, Ma’ri, who quickly implements change and starts ruffling the staff’s feathers.  As if Miss Robbie’s plate wasn’t full enough, she’s also moving ahead with launching her new Sweetie Pie’s Sweet Tea line. It’s all systems go as this family works hard to expand their brand – one recipe at a time.
