Hubig’s Pies back in stores in New Orleans on Monday, with some selling out at the Carrollton pop-up on Sunday

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) — More than 10 years after a five-alarm fire destroyed its Faubourg Marigny factory, New Orleans institution Hubig’s Pies is back.

Owner Andrew Ramsey announced that Hubig’s pies will be available in limited quantities at local New Orleans stores starting Monday. A limited supply of apple and lemon pies was available Sunday in a pop-up tent in the parking lot of the Carrollton branch of the Hancock Whitney Bank (1324 S. Carrollton Ave.) from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., or until they are exhausted.

“I am thrilled to bring Hubig’s pies back to market,” Ramsey said in a statement. “We are grateful for the patience and loyalty of the people of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. We have benefited from so many good wishes. We encourage our community to continue supporting what they hold dear.

The company did not initially provide a list of stores expected to receive inventory on Monday. His statement also said the pies would be available for online ordering at Hubigs.com, but that website appeared to be down early Sunday.

The hand pastries mostly disappeared when the company’s factory at 2417 Dauphine St. burned down on July 27, 2012. Hubig’s had opened in New Orleans in 1921 but closed after the fire. Ramsey acquired the defunct company in 2019, becoming the third generation member of his family to operate Hubig’s. Small quantities of pies have been sold in recent years in Fleurty Girl stores.

“We use the same recipes and formulas,” he said. “Some machines salvaged and refurbished. Some machines have been custom made to replicate what has been lost. The pies will be identical in every way.

Apple and Lemon Pies are the first to be rolled out in the company’s resurrection. Other favorites such as Chocolate, Coconut, Peach and Pineapple will follow shortly, according to the release. And there will be seasonal flavors including sweet potato, strawberry, banana and blueberry, the company said.

“We were pleased to rehire several former employees,” Ramsey said. “We look forward to growing our team and our cast.”
