We thought we had seen the last of Hubig’s Pies, but we thought wrong.
Hubig’s Pies, also sometimes called Hubig’s New Orleans Style Pies, are a brand of fruit and sweet-filled fried pies that were produced by the Simon Hubig Pie Company in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Founded in Texas in 1922, the pies grew in popularity and opened up 8 factories nationwide. Unfortunately, every single factory closed during the great depression, except for the NOLA location.
The pies came off the shelf in 2012, following a devastating fire at said NOLA location. Thankfully, the pies may see new life as new owner has confirmed that they should be back for sale in a matter of months.
Although no exact date has been confirmed, the pie franchise actually set to reopen last year but faced several obstacles due to the ongoing pandemic.
As the return remains a mystery, you better keep your eyes peeled, NOLA. Perhaps one day soon you’ll be seeing those delicious pies back on sale across the city.
And don’t worry all you traditional folk, as the new pies will be exactly identical to the icons that were once sold in supermarkets, gas stations, and well… anywhere really.
We promise to keep you up to date with all Hubig news. The perfect snack will be back!
