PEACE PIE STORY
Peace Pie began Thanksgiving night 2010, over a delicious batch of pie filling and a forgotten pie crust. Jerry Klause, founder and creator, baked the pie filling and two giant shortbread cookies, then combined it all in layers with vanilla ice cream. He served a Pecan Pie Lasagne for dessert and it was a hit with the whole crowd.
The following summer, The Klause family started Peace Pie, The Ice Cream Sandwich with a Layer of Pie Filling! : Selling at farmers markets and local events all throughout southern New Jersey.
Memorial Day weekend of 2015 their grassroots lead them to their first brick and mortar storefront in Cape May, NJ. Within hours of opening night, Jerry knew the Pies were just too good to not share them with the whole east coast.
January of 2016, Joe Klause, Jerry's son, brought Peace Pies to Meeting Street in Charleston, SC.
January of 2017, Maryrose LaCavera, Jerry's daughter, opened the third shop in Saint Augustine, Florida.
By the Summer of 2017 the second storefront in Charleston opened on upper King Street. Jerry's niece Dana LaCavera and Marissa Leigh, manage both of the Charleston locations today.
That same summer, Joan Klause, Joe and Maryrose's mom, and Jerry's dearest friend, opened the fifth store in Ventnor City, NJ.
The Journey Continues
The Peace Pie sensation continues to expand. The Klause and LaCavera family love every minute of sharing the ultimate ice cream sandwich experience with the world.
