SAN ANTONIO, April 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Tootie Pie Company, Inc. (OTCQB: TOOT) announced that it acquired its seventh Tootie Pie Gourmet Cafe location. It is located in the Village at Allen Shopping Center: 190 Stacy Road; Suite 190, in Allen, a suburb just north of Dallas, TX.

"Of our seven current locations, Frisco, Arbor Walk (Austin), Fredericksburg and our original location in San Antonio, came to us as operating or recently operating businesses."
