Founded almost 100 years ago, Hubig’s Pies has been a staple in New Orleans since they first moved to the city from Texas in 1922. During the great depression, Hubig’s remained profitable and served New Orleans the finest fruit-filled fried pies. This relationship created a lasting love affair with New Orleanians and Hubig’s.
In 2012 the company went under after a devastating fire destroyed much of their inventory and their entire production facility. This news devastated Lousiana residents, as the company was revered as one of our longest-standing traditions.

Governor Edwards announced today that Hubig’s Pies owner Andrew Ramsey plans a relaunch with a 2 million dollar investment in a Jefferson Parish facility. Ramsey was quoted as saying Hubig’s has been around for 100 years and is excited to once again return to its home in New Orleans.
“We’re looking forward to our relaunch and announcing 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. Hubig’s is eager to get our pies back into the hands of our loyal customers.”
To secure funding, the State of Louisiana offered Hubig’s an incentive package that includes the workforce solutions of LED FastStart. The nation’s No. 1 state workforce development program.
Hubig’s targets a return to Louisiana in 2020, with classic flavors such as apple, cherry, lemon, peach, and other seasonal pies.
