Frequently Asked Questions
A. We are expanding to new markets, and we update our Tippin’s Pie Finder regularly to include local grocery retailers. If there isn’t a location nearby, you can order a pie online to be delivered to your home. If you want your grocery store to carry Tippin’s, please ask the store manager. A little customer pressure never hurts!
We opened as Pippin’s Restaurant & Pie Pantry in 1980. We changed our name to Tippin’s in 1985. That’s nearly 40 years of pie-making expertise! Learn more about our history.
French Silk, Apple and Pumpkin are our best-selling pies. In fact, our Pumpkin pies are in such demand that we produce half a million Pumpkin pies every holiday season.
We occasionally make a Chocolate Peanut Butter pie that is produced in our bakery along with Pecan, Dixie and other pies with nuts. We take steps to minimize the potential for cross-contamination of any allergens, but in an abundance of caution, we make sure to declare on our labels the potential for an allergen to exist. We are very aware of the impact allergens can have on people with food allergies, and we hope you are able to find products that you can enjoy safely.
We intend to! We’re currently revamping our online ordering to better serve our customers. We regret that we won’t be able to fulfill holiday orders for 2018. Please check back after the new year to see when Tippin’s best-selling pies will be available to order online for home delivery.

Yes, Tippin’s pie packaging can be recycled with any plastic recycling. Because Tippin’s pies are made from scratch with fresh ingredients, we need to keep them in an air-tight container. Our packaging serves to keep our pies fresh at home while you enjoy them. Please recycle the top and bottom plastic pieces when you finish your pie. You can rinse out the aluminum pie tin and recycle it as well.
