Perkins menu development and innovation ensures that all product offerings recognize and address consumers changing tastes and preferences.
Founded in 1948, Marie Callender's, which dominates California and the southwest, operates 92 company and 42 franchised restaurants.
Marie Callender’s was established when Marie’s great cooking and passion for making delicious pies inspired her to bake pies for local restaurants.
Marie and her family sold their car for $700 and used the money to pay for one month’s rent on a reconverted World War II army Quonset hut and down payment on a small oven, refrigerator, rolling pin and kitchen tools.
Marie’s pies quickly became a hit and she went from baking 10 pies to 40 pies a day.Marie and her family opened their first restaurant on Orange, Calif.
At first, only Marie’s pies were served, but eventually her classic and traditional food entrées were discovered.As of 2008, with over 135 restaurants in 10 states, we’re proud to celebrate 60 years of tradition inspired by Marie.
The combination of the Perkins Restaurant & Bakery chain with Marie Callender's occurred in May 2006.
