Welcome to Sweetie Pie's is a reality TV show that premiered on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) in 2011. The show revolves around Robbie Montgomery, a former backup singer for Ike and Tina Turner, and her family as they run a family-owned soul food restaurant in St. Louis, Missouri.

Robbie Montgomery, better known as Miss Robbie, is the owner of Sweetie Pie's, a restaurant that she opened with the help of her son, Tim Norman. Tim later took control of the business to expand it to multiple locations. Sweetie Pie's gained popularity for its Southern-style soul food, which includes dishes like fried chicken, mac and cheese, collard greens, and cornbread.

The show features Miss Robbie and her family as they navigate the ups and downs of running a restaurant business. The show also delves into the personal lives of the family members and their relationships with each other. Miss Robbie is a strong-willed woman who is passionate about her business and her family. She is often seen in the kitchen, cooking up a storm alongside her head chef Tim.

Tim is Miss Robbie's son and the general manager of Sweetie Pie's. He is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the business, which includes managing the staff, overseeing the kitchen, and handling the finances. However, Tim's relationship with his mother can be complicated, as he often clashes with her over business decisions.

Other prominent members of the Sweetie Pie's family include Miss Robbie's brother, Uncle Maurice, who is the restaurant's entertainment director and often performs at the restaurant, and Charles, Tim's cousin, who works as the restaurant's cook.

Throughout the show's seven seasons, the family faces various challenges, from financial struggles to interpersonal conflicts. One of the most significant struggles the family goes through is the opening of the Los Angeles Sweetie Pie's location, which Tim manages. The opening of the new location is met with many obstacles, including staff turnover and financial difficulties.

The show also touches on social issues, such as gun violence in St. Louis, which affects the family personally when Tim's nephew is killed in a shooting. The family's response to the tragedy is shown, including their efforts to raise awareness about gun violence and advocate for change.

Overall, Welcome to Sweetie Pie's is a heartwarming and entertaining show that offers a glimpse into the lives of a close-knit family running a successful restaurant business. The show balances the family's business and personal lives, making it relatable to viewers who can see themselves in the family's struggles and triumphs.

Welcome to Sweetie Pie's is a series that is currently running and has 8 seasons (105 episodes). The series first aired on October 16, 2011.
