On the heels of a five-blue ribbon showing at the American Pie Council’s National Pie Championships, Tippin’s Gourmet Pies, Kansas City, Kan., staged a weekend of events designed to thank employees and reintroduce customers to an old favorite.
The company first held an employee barbecue on May 26. On May 28, Tippin’s took the party to the public at an Overland Park, Kan., Hen House supermarket, hosting an all-day pie festival in the parking lot. The event was designed to reintroduce consumers to the Tippin’s brand, and showcase the blue-ribbon performance. This was the first year Tippin’s participated in the National Pie Championships.
