“Our fans have been hungry for the chance to show pierogy love on their sleeve for years, and we couldn’t be more excited to finally give them the chance to do exactly that,” said Tom Twardzik, president of Ateeco Inc, the Shenandoah, Pennsylvania-based producer of the popular Mrs. T’s product range. “This one-of-a-kind, limited-edition line of Mrs. T’s Pierogies apparel and accessories will make every day feel like National Pierogy Day for those lucky enough to claim a piece of the collection for themselves.”
The company founded National Pierogy Day on October 8, 2008 to honor the date in 1952 that Ted Twardzik Sr., the son of Mary Twardzik, the Mrs. T, made his very first sale of his mother’s Polish-style pasta pockets stuffed with creamy mashed potatoes and cheese to a local grocery store.
Today, boasting 13 flavors including Classic Cheddar and Loaded Baked Potato in full and mini sizes, Mrs. T’s Pierogies is the #1 supplier of frozen pierogies in America. The company produces approximately 600 million units per year.
