Tim Norman was born and raised in St. Louis, MO by his single mother Robbie Montgomery. His father passed away before he was born, so Tim and his mother have always been very close. At the age of 17, Tim was arrested for armed robbery and sentenced to serve 10 years in prison. Upon his release he vowed to make something positive out of his life and joined the family business, where he now helps to manage his mother's two successful restaurants Sweetie Pie's, and Sweetie Pie's at the Mangrove.
In addition to his work at Sweetie Pie's, Tim is very active in his local community where he helps create jobs for newly paroled and homeless residents and provides food to those in need. He also participates in several youth-oriented organizations such as the Boys & Girls Club, where he works with at-risk youth to help inspire self-confidence and guide them down a positive life path. He has received several state and city awards for assisting his community and for good citizenship.
