MAK­ING PIE LOOK EASY

Boston Herald - - NEWS - By OWEN BOSS

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.
