It all started with dessert. The legacy of Marie Callender began in the early 1940s in Orange County, California, when Marie, an accomplished baker, first launched her legendary pie business, delivering freshly baked pies to area restaurants.
The combination of the Perkins Restaurant & Bakery chain with Marie Callender's occurred in 2006 creating an undisputed presence in the national dining scene. And, while the Perkins Restaurant & Bakery concept and the Marie Callender's concept fall under the same corporate umbrella, both brands remain individual, carrying with them their own rich histories, unique competitive points of difference and distinct geographical strongholds.
Marie Callender's operates over 50 restaurants in the United States and Mexico. And while many things have changed, one thing will always remain the samethe quality and care that goes into making each and every one of our legendary pies. And for that, we can all be thankful.
