Eight years after a fire destroyed their historic home in the Faubourg Marigny, Hubig's Pies are getting ready to return to store shelves in 2020.
Gov. John Bel Edwards and Hubig's owner Andrew Ramsey made the announcement this morning that Hubig's would build a new facility in Jefferson Parish with hopes to relaunch next year with classic flavors such as apple, cherry, lemon, peach, chocolate and seasonal flavors using the company's traditional recipes.
“No one embraces traditions and good food like the people of Louisiana,” Gov. Edwards said. “Hubig's pies are as unique to Louisiana as Mardi Gras, and we welcome the return of this iconic local brand with open arms and empty stomachs. We’re happy to help support Hubig’s Pies as it revives a great culinary tradition and creates new career opportunities in Louisiana's rich culinary heritage.”
“We’re looking forward to our relaunch and being able to announce a more detailed timeline soon,” Ramsey said. “We’ve been a New Orleans company since the 1920s. We buy local, hire local, and our main market is Louisiana. We are eager to get Hubig's Pies back into the hands of our loyal customers. We appreciate their patience and support.”
“Hubig’s has been a staple in greater New Orleans for generations,” Jefferson Parish President Mike Yenni said. “The Parish Council and administration stand at-the-ready to support the Hubig’s team as they continue to make strides toward their relaunch.”
Hubig's is also planning a relaunch of its website to allow for online ordering and delivery.
