Beloved Houston pie shop sweetens things up with new online ordering
House of Pies fans, rejoice. The Houston dining institution is selling whole and mini pies online.
Available on the newly renovated site, EZNeeds.com, a whole pie is $14.95; a mini is $4.95. Shipping is free on order of $49 or more. The website currently offers classics like pecan, peach, cherry, and apple pies.
EZNeeds.com offers bulk items for up to 30 percent less than big box stores. The site is founded by House of Pies owner Nidal Ganim and his family.
"We're all about giving the choice like a hybrid between a Costco and a Kroger and the fact you can get bulk paper towels or bulk Mac 'n' Cheese while getting one Clorox," says Ganim, founder and CEO.
"We have an interesting twist. You can sign up using your email password, social logins, Facebook, Google. You can now log in using your Amazon information, and so it's safe and secure and makes that barrier of trying something new easier," he explains.
Membership fees are waived and Texas residents receive free next-day shipping for orders over $49.
"Everything we do, we're backed by 100 percent customer satisfaction. We offer free returns up to 30 days. You have nothing to lose," says Ganim. "With my family being in the wholesale business for so long, and we don't have store costs, so we're able to transfer that cost over to the customer. That's how we're able to provide the 20 to 30 percent savings," he notes.
A mobile app is coming soon that offers completely hands-free, voice activated shopping using an Alexa.
