SAN JOSE, Calif. (KRON) – A small business owner in Northern California says her pie shop is out thousands of dollars after Tesla unexpectedly canceled an order for thousands of mini pies.

Voahangy Rasetarinera owns Giving Pies in the Willow Glen neighborhood of San Jose. Each cake is carefully assembled by hand in small batches. Despite this, the bakery has managed to collect orders for large corporations, such as Apple, Google and Intuit.

On Valentine’s Day, the bakery received a last-minute order request from Tesla: 2,000 cakes, half to be delivered on Tuesday and the other half on Thursday. Rasetarinera said she agreed. But then the waiting game began for Tesla to pay.

After not hearing back from his contact, Rasetarinera says he reached out again and sent the invoice multiple times to multiple people. Finally, at 9 pm on Thursday, he received a call from Tesla. The company apologized for the late payment and asked to double the order to 4,000 pies.

“So I contacted my staff and they said, ‘Yes, we can work Saturday, Sunday and Monday.’ We can make it. No problem,’” Rasetarinera recalls.

She says she sent Tesla a revised invoice and still hasn’t received payment. She contacted them several times and finally received a response via text message.

“Sorry to bother you again, but I’m a small business. I don’t have the luxury of infinite resources, so I really need to get paid to be able to insure my staff. I got a message saying, ‘Hey, I’m so sorry, I don’t think we’re going to need this order anymore,’” Rasetarinera said.

Rasetarinera had rejected other orders and had already purchased resources such as ingredients, boxes, and stickers. After posting it on social media, he says Tesla saw it and reached out.

“They said they wanted to fix it with me and offered me to do two events on March 6 and 7, but I’m still waiting for confirmation,” he said. “If they want to fix things, I will give them the opportunity to do so.”

KRON4 reached out to Tesla for comment, but as of Thursday evening they had not responded.
