What is Pi?
The symbol used by mathematicians to represent the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter is the Greek letter π. That letter (and therefore the number π itself) can be denoted by the Latin word pi. In English, π is pronounced like “pie,” of course. The number π is a mathematical constant that is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter and is approximately equal to 3.14159.
At Grand Traverse Pie Company, our commitment is to make amazing pie with purpose. We are passionate about making a heartfelt positive impact on those we serve.
Make plans to join all of our positive, good-hearted people on Thursday, March 14th at any GT Pie Co. location. We hope you enjoy what we love to do most – serve handmade pie made from scratch every day, just for you!
