Meet the Pie Guys

Kern's Kitchen is a family business with a lot of heart. At the core of that business are two men who know their pie, and their industry, very very well. The "Pie Man," Alan Rupp, is the President and leader of the business. His son, Jon the "Pie Guy," is the sales manager and has the smiling face you will meet at trade shows and events. Together, they manage the production and sales of over 100,000 pies a year.

...loved it!

Just wanted to let you all know that I was in Louisville (from St. Louis) this past weekend to visit my best friend and her husband who now live there. We ate at the Louisville Slugger Stadium for lunch and topped off splitting a piece of your Derby Pie. I had never had it or even heard of it before and loved it! I hope to have it again when I come back. Our waiter did tell us that the name "Derby Pie" is registered and only your Kern's Kitchen is the real one....I enjoyed it very much!
