History of Pi – 3.14

Pi, Greek letter (), is the symbol for the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Pi = 3.1415926535… Pi is an irrational and transcendental number meaning it will continue infinitely without repeating. With the use of computers, Pi has been calculated to over 1 trillion digits past the decimal. The symbol for Pi was first used in 1706 by William Jones but was made popular by the Swiss mathematician Leonhard Euler in 1737. In 2009 the United States House of Representatives officially designated March 14 (3/14) as Pi Day in a bid to draw attention to improving math and science skills.

The Grand Traverse Pie Company is proud to be in their 27th year of making pie and giving back to communities across Michigan. Every location has on-site bakers, delivering the made-from-scratch and just baked taste of pie each and every day.

Pie is part of America’s desire for comfort food. Not just pie that meets every sweet tooth’s desire, but also chicken pot pies along with quiche are served up for comfort all year long too,” stated Mike Busley, Co-Founder of Grand Traverse Pie Company. “We’re honored to share the goodness of comfort each and every day through all sorts of pie. Any way you slice it, pie is America’s comfort food.”
