Boost Your Pie-Q!
With National Pie Day right around the corner on January 23, we thought we’d share a few slices of knowledge to boos your Pie-Q!
- Nielsen 52 week date ending 7/21/18 indicates that pie unit volume was up 18.1% over prior year, driven by mini pies, 1/2 pies and meringue pies. Mini pies are experiencing rapid growth with an increase of 11% over the last year. In months without a major holiday, that format has been the clear leader in the segment.
- According to the American Pie Council, 7% of Americans try to pass off store bought pie as homemade! So the experts at Food Network suggest making it look Instagram-able to boost impulse purchase.
- Flavor & The Menu reports that when diners get to the end of a meal, they generally seek nostalgia, or a known entity for that sweet ending. But we know they also want to be delighted. Pie is the perfect creative answer. Easy to combine flavors and texture spark interest and sales.
