Mrs. Smiths Pies (a.k.a. Mrs. Smiths Bakeries) is one of the largest frozen pie brands in the United States. The company was founded by Amanda Smith, a homemaker from Pottstown, PA, and her son Robert. Robert started selling slices of Amandas own deep-dish, fruit-filled pies at the local YMCA lunch counter. The demand for Amandas delicious pies led to the formation of the company. There were four Mrs. Smiths Pies bakeries serving the Northeast United States by 1930, including one in Logan, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Two decades later, the company began producing its trademark frozen pies.
