<h2><span class=What's a PieShell?">

PieShell is Crowdfunding for Food + Beverage Entrepreneurs. It’s also something that holds fruit and can be baked to deliciousness. That’s where the Founder and CEO Cheryl Clements got the naming inspiration for her Company. Cheryl spent summers helping her mother run a pie-making business, and it was from her Mom that she learned what it takes to be a successful food-preneur.

Leptin was derived from leptos meaning thin in Greek. Leptin helps control or influence almost every other weight loss hormone in your body and your body’s ability to burn fat.
