The Z Pie concept was born after travels to Australia and New Zealand, where it's hard to walk a city block without passing several pie eating opportunities! On our return we would ask ourselves.... “Why are meat pies not as tasty or more popular here in the States?”
So in 1998 our family and a few close friends decided to open a gourmet pot pie restaurant in the small gold rush town of Placerville, California and offer our own version of the “down under” pies. We started out perfecting just three flavors, Steak and Cabernet, Chicken and Mushroom and Very Vegetable. Over the years we have grown to offer 20 delectable gourmet z pie flavors along with soups, organic salads, desserts and locally-brewed beer and wine.
In March of 2012 we opened a new franchisee in Reno NV on West St. near the Riverwalk. If you are interested in the possibility of opening a Z Pie franchise, please contact us for more info.
