So, in 1952, Mrs. T’s Pierogies was officially born!
With five women sitting around his mother’s kitchen making pierogies and selling them to local stores, he knew he was on to something. It wasn’t long before he had worn out his welcome in that kitchen and moved production to the company’s current location in Shenandoah, PA.
But to Ted, this wasn’t just a business. It was an opportunity for everyone to experience those handmade, delicious pasta pockets, stuffed with hand-whipped potatoes and cheese—the very ones that he grew up eating. It was a dream to build something his family could be proud of—in the small town that he loved.
Mrs. T’s Pierogies became a staple, not only in local stores, but also surrounding communities. And, as the love for Mrs. T’s Pierogies grew, so did the demand. As the company flourished, it was really important to Ted and his family that the Mrs. T’s Pierogies experience remained as consistently enjoyable and delicious as it was in his mom’s kitchen.
Over 65 years later, that same spirit lives on in Ted’s son, Tom, who now runs the family business. And, Mrs. T’s is now the largest provider of pierogies in the country and offers many new flavor combinations, as well as the original classics.
Yet no matter how many years go by, one thing remains: food, fun, and family will always be the key ingredients at Mrs. T’s.
Mrs. T’s Pierogies are stuffed with the stuff you love, to enjoy with the people you love!
