National Pie Day

How Tippin’s Celebrates National Pie Day

In early January, we asked our fans on Facebook to nominate organizations and businesses to receive a Tippin’s Pie Party on the best day of the year: January 23, also known as National Pie Day. The nominations poured in and we had to make some tough choices to narrow our list to five lucky winners.

Then, Kansas City weather intervened. January 23, 2019, dawned cold, icy and snowy in Kansas City. Most schools had called it a snow day. The roads were treacherous for early morning commutes.

But as the morning passed, the sun peeked out and the roads cleared. And the Pie Day deliveries commenced! Because nothing should stop a good Pie Day Party.

Pie Day Random Acts of Pie-ness

We have so much fun doing these Random Acts of Pie-ness in our hometown throughout the year. It’s a treat to meet people doing amazing things in our community. And when you show up with Tippin’s pie, people get really excited. It’s a great feeling for everyone!

Happy National Pie Day! Celebrate accordingly.
