After a 25-year absence, one of Chicago's all-time great dessert names has made a triumphant return.
Pies by Fasano ("As Good As Mother's and Better Than Others") is as familiar and popular a Chicago name as Riverview or Bozo's Circus or Frango Mints.
Many thousands of Chicago-area moms and dads, grandmas and grandpas remember these mouth-watering pies fresh and warm from the Fasano bakery and outlet store on 65th Street---as well as from grocery stores, delicatessens, restaurants and even school cafeterias across the Chicago area. Many people still have the memorable Fasano pie tins as collectibles.
The successful return has been engineered by Peter Fasano, son of the legendary Joseph "Joe Pies" Fasano and grandson of the company founder.
