MAKING PIE LOOK EASY
The Bay State’s own Table Talk Pies, known nationwide for their famous 4-inch snack pies, will soon be pumping out more than 4 million of its delicious pastries a week, thanks to the company’s new 50,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Worcester.
The Worcester-based company, founded in 1924 by two Greek immigrants, is one of the country’s leading pie makers, whose products are sold in supermarkets from coast to coast. The addition of the new facility at the long-vacant South Worcester Industrial Park will allow the company to add more than 50 jobs to its current 300 full-time and seasonal workforce.
FLOUR ARRANGEMENT: Guests gather near pallets of flour before taking a tour of the new Table Talk Pies facility in Worcester yesterday. The new space will allow the company to add 50 employees to its workforce.
