The Upper Crust bakery in Lake Worth: Did they miss this news? Blue Front BBQ certainly didn't

Both the Blue Front BBQ and the Upper Crust bakery in Lake Worth won Best Of in Palm Beach County. I made a big deal of that on this blog and so did Blue Front. Is it possible a lot of pie lovers took notice of that? Very likely. Here is an excerpt from the article by Kevin Thompson at the Post about the manager of the bakery, the long line outside the door, and she is quoted saying, "We’ve never had this happen before.”
     Since The Upper Crust opened at 10 a.m., a line started snaking outside the shoebox-sized bakery and along Dixie Highway [emphasis added] as customers patiently waited to buy their Turkey Day sweets.
     “This is a little overwhelming,” said Jodie Quintero, the store manager who has worked at The Upper Crust for 30 years. “We’re trying to keep up, but it’s a task. We’ve never had this happen before.”
     Quintero said two years ago, the bakery started accepting online orders, a move that most likely led to longer lines.
     “We did it two years ago, but everybody seemed to have figured it out this year,” Quintero said, adding that the store usually sells 6,000 pies during Thanksgiving week.
The Upper Crust bakery is located at 2015 North Dixie Hwy. in Lake Worth.
