Hubig's pies maker plans to open new N.O. bakery
NEW ORLEANS - The company that makes the popular Hubig's snack pies plans to open a new bakery in New Orleans to replace one demolished by a fire last year.
Members of the City Planning Commission voted Tuesday to approve Simon Hubig Pie Co.'s plan to open a bakery in a location on the border of the Marigny and Bywater neighborhoods.
The Times-Picayune reports that Hubig's hasn't signed a purchase agreement for the new site yet because its owners are waiting for the city to approve a permit for the location, now a vacant lot belonging to the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts Institute.
Hubig's old bakery in the Marigny was completely gutted by a fire that broke out on July 27, 2012.
