Roll with it....

Times, they are "a changin'"!  

Sometimes, when those changes come along, you just have to roll with it.

Change can be good.  
While tough, and full of challenges, we must embrace it and make the best of it!  See it as an adventure.

That is what is happening here.

I recently made some drastic changes at Dixie Belle's, stepping off the truck to focus on our numerous catering requests.
It was a good change, it allowed my to work smarter and not harder (although, I still worked really hard!) and spend more time with my family.

Now, we are changing again.

Recently, my darling husband was awarded a great opportunity within his company.  It was one of those things you don't say "no" to if you value your prospects in the company.

How does this mean a change for Dixie Belle's, you are certainly wondering by now!
Well, here it is.

We are moving.
To Nebraska!

Yep, you read that right.  In the coming weeks we will be loading the moving truck to move to my husband's new office in Omaha. 
Sadly, this does mean that I will no longer be able to serve my wonderful customers in the Nashville area.  

We have loved and truly enjoyed every minute we have spent serving you!  

After we arrive in Nebraska, and get settled, I will post an update as to whether I decide to offer my services in the new city.... 
For now, I am rolling with it!

God Bless!

A Love thing!

It's that time of year again!

We are now into February and everyone is thinking about what to do for Valentine's Day!

Are you?
If not, you might want to get started!
Don't be the guy (or gal) who waits til the last minute, and ends up bringing home a grocery store carnation, because that is all that was left to choose from!
It's a LOVE thing!  
Make sure the sweeties in your life know how much you love them.
Cause you KNOW they will be looking around the office to see what everyone else is getting....

Contact us now and we can help make your Valentine's Day a special one to remember!

We have a wide variety of cupcakes to choose from, just $27 per dozen.

Strawberries & Cream is always a popular flavor, but if it's not your taste we can easily add some pink coloring to a simple vanilla buttercream.
Maybe even add a candy or chocolate heart, just for you!

And of course, there are always pink or red sprinkles to consider.
Whatever floats your boat, ya know?

Last year we added Chocolate Covered Strawberries and pretzels to our Valentine lineup.  They were a big hit!
We are pleased to offer them again this year, just $16 per dozen.

They come plain, with lovely white striping, or rolled in chopped peanuts.... yum!
How about marshmallows!?  
Yep, that's new this year!

Maybe you want the kids to have a Valentine treat of their own!
With any order of cupcakes, you can add a dozen chocolate covered marshmallows (also covered in stripes, peanuts, or SPRINKLES) for just $8 per dozen! How cool!
(Sorry, can't deliver just marshmallows, gotta add them to a cupcake order.  That's a "gas-guzzler" thing, guys.)

Your kids will think you are the best parent ever!  
Forget a card, they want sweets!

So! Word to the wise!  Get your order in NOW!!!
Don't wait til it's too late.  We can only take on a handful of deliveries that day, and you want to make sure you are one of them!

Big changes!

Happy New Year!!

We had a wonderful Christmas, we hope you all did too!

 It is always nice, after all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, to just sit back and enjoy the holidays with family.  It is really refreshing and joyous.

We had an amazing year in 2013!  
We met lots of wonderful folks, served at some really great events, and
really witnessed our business grow.

We also noticed some trends in our customer base and decided to make some changes in how we do things to benefit YOU, our customers!

Over the last several years we have gradually become more and more of a catering and delivery operation, than a food truck.  
In fact, in 2013 that was our primary source of work!  Wow!!  Didn't see that one coming.

So,  we sat down over the holidays and decided to work smarter, not harder, and structure Dixie Belle's in such a way that will most benefit our fans.

In the last 2 months we were also very fortunate to move into a permanent kitchen location.  

We will be serving sweets EVERY WEEK, on Thursdays, at the Adesa Auto Auction in Old Hickory.  This is a partnership we are very excited about!  They came to us, in need of someone to help provide lunch to the crowds of folks who come through there every week, and we really wanted to find a kitchen we could call our own.  This is it!  
We have teamed up with the crew from Fried Green Tomatoes, who will be providing most of the savory options each week.   They are a talented bunch of ladies with years of experience.

What does this mean?
Well, this means that we will be concentrating our efforts on the catering and delivery aspect of Dixie Belle's.  We will be at the Auto Auction every Thursday, where we will be able to serve a variety of desserts in addition to cupcakes!  
We will also be available for catering more frequently, as well as stepping up the number of deliveries we are able to make each day!  
That benefits everyone, it's a Win-Win! 

Don't forget, as always we will deliver to you for FREE within Nashville and the immediate surroundings with a 2 doz minimum!  

Stay tuned for some additional specials coming your way!  We plan to make some additions and changes to our website, so check back regularly!

Finally, we want to thank all of you for your continued support!  We truly love what we do and we look forward to another great year!
