Americans like a mobile lifestyle in the sense that they should be able to eat their meals on the go yet still enjoy the kind of food that their grandmothers prepared for them, so to speak. The combo of on-the-go meals, delicious quality, and reasonable prices is addressed by the hundreds of delis, fast-food joints and fast casual restaurants across the country. These are, in many ways, an American invention as a result of the desire for a mobile lifestyle.

Bakers Square actually started as a restaurant then known as Mrs. C’s located in Des Moines, Iowa in December 1969. The restaurant was known for its pies so it’s no wonder that Pillsbury purchased it and renamed it Poppin’ Fresh Pies, as well as opened more locations. The ownership of the Poppin’ Fresh Pies chain changed hands when VICORP purchased it from Pillsbury in 1983. VICORP, the owners of the chain of Village Inn restaurants, also renamed it Bakers Square.
