UPer Crust Pies


UPer Crust Pies will specialize in quality pies and pastries, imported frozen from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and baked fresh every day. The premium taste, presentation and quality of our pies will not only be unique in Yubetchatown and the greater megalopolis area, but in the entire United States.

UPer Crust Pies are low in fat, free of genetically modified ingredients and made with premium ingredients. After oven baking, pies are put into warmers and held at a steady temperature to ensure rapid service and high customer satisfaction.

The company will also sell frozen pies that can be taken home and cooked in an oven or microwave. New technology in manufacturing has enabled New Zealand producers to develop a pie that can be heated by microwave in less than three minutes with the pastry remaining flaky as if it had been cooked in a convection oven for thirty minutes.

Our pies experience will be complemented by an assortment of premium salads and desserts as well as cold beverages. Savory samples will also be offered to first-time visitors.

What is a Pie?

The meat pie is a traditional old-country food consisting of savory fillings in a pastry shell. Traditional fillings include beef and cheese, steak, bacon and egg, and chicken and vegetable to name a few.

Usually eaten hot from a paper bag, with flaky golden pastry and savory fillings, the pie is unpretentious comfort food. UPer Crust Pies will bring the Upper Peninsula pie experience to the U.S. and endeavor to establish the humble meat pie as gourmet fare for Americans while bringing a taste of home to “UPers” living throughout America.
