Our Story

The Good Pie Company started when Marti and Frank Reich hatched a plan in the Spring of 2013. Although the business of selling pies is a relatively new one for the couple, the process of – and love for – making good pies and great food goes back many years.

 

So, what’s their secret? Mix together 1/3 of wife Marti’s instinctual ways around the kitchen, 1/3 of Frank’s scientific background and attention to detail, and 1/3 of sheer, raw talent. Add a pinch of passion, a dash of love and a sprinkle of spice and you have a dynamic duo with a pie to reckon with. This is not only a Good Pie story, but also a great love story!
Marti and Frank met in the winter of ‘73 when Marti moved from Pittsburgh to Miami Beach. The two became fast friends; they were only 13. Their friendship grew well into their early 20s before being struck with cupid’s arrow. It was than that they decided to get married.

Once married, Marti and Frank moved to San Francisco where they fell in love with the food. To be fair, Marti already loved food; Frank had to catch up! Wanting to learn to cook as a young couple, they watched cooking shows like Frugal Gourmet and Yen Can Cook and their culinary passions soon began to flourish. Their love for each other was only matched by their love of food and cooking.

The two decided to move back to Miami Beach to start their family. Three children later, the Reich clan was growing, and so was the need to feed them. Boy, did Marti feed them! Marti’s creativity and natural ability in the kitchen feed not only them, but the entire neighborhood, which lead to her first food venture and the beginning of her two catering businesses, “The Lunch Lady” and “What’s cookin’ at Marti’s?”

While working as a manufacturer, Frank had some unexpected health issues in 2005. In order to elevate as much stress from his life as possible, Frank started to bake. It was his “mantra.” What began as a simple stress free hobby turned into the must have pies for every holiday, special occasion, and family gathering.

Pinally they gave into their instincts and formed a Piempire! Being recently new empty nesters, they hit the road running and gunning for a pie education.

This past summer, Marti and Frank traveled across the country in search of the best pie education this country could give. They were determined to learn more about ingredients, cooking methods, styles, designs and business plans. The tapestry of American pie-makers fascinated, mesmerized and inspired the couple. What they learned was beyond anything they could have imagined.

Upon their return home to Hollywood, Florida, they were ready to take their pie company to the next level. Marti the cook, handled the savory pies and Frank the baker, handled the sweet pies. Together they are unstoppable and they birthed The Good Pie Company. By creating a smorgasbord of pies to start up the business, they catered to friends, family, and local businesses.
Now having their first store front, their goal of making the freshest, most delectable pies in America has become a reality.

Good Pie!
