National Pie Day celebration

For pie lovers, January 23 was like Christmas, July 4th, and their birthday all rolled into one. It was National Pie Day, the annual day to celebrate pie and the tasty comfort it brings.

On Pie Day, the Grand Traverse Pie Company gave away thousands of free slices of fruit pie with every purchase at all of their 15 locations.

The celebration had special meaning for GT Pie because it gave the Grand Traverse Pie Company another chance to celebrate and honor the beautiful state of Michigan, where 14 of the 15 pie shops are located. GT Pie Co. uses fruit made in Michigan, and much of the ingredients for their pies are manufactured and grown in the Great Lakes State.

“We are serving Michigan fruit pie for National Pie Day as a salute to our Michigan business and agriculture,” stated Mike Busley, founder of Grand Traverse Pie Company. “Michigan has a great bounty of natural resources and commodities to be extremely proud of. We are thrilled to serve up the comforts of pie with a Pure Michigan twist,” Busley went on to say.
