As a household name, we offer something for all tastebuds. From our famous Pepper steak Pie to our Cocktails pies, there is a tasty pastry pie for everyone. So why not take a bite and become part of the King Pie legacy.
Our story began in 1990 when we opened our first store in Silverton, Pretoria. We dreamed of baking pies, filled with love and flavour – hearty food to warm the heart. This dream, now realised, is still our driving force.
We started in an open-style bakery where customers could see the kitchen action and indulge in the golden-bake smell drifting from the ovens. This proved to be a neighbourhood hit, and soon customers were queuing up for their piece of pie.
After three successful years, The King Pie Franchise Group was born and we’ve been growing ever since. Today, we have over 300 franchised businesses and form part of The Bidvest Group Limited.
