NEW YORK  (  Harry & David, the brand that Delivers Happiness, was featured on “The Oprah Winfrey Show”: Ultimate Wildest Dreams Episode as the exclusive partner with the Centerville Pie Company to produce and distribute a Signature Chicken Pie. The partnership represents Harry & David’s unparalleled brand esteem as well as their commitment to public service, as demonstrated by their support of a local small business and its extended charitable affiliation, with a percentage of each purchase going to Cape Abilities, a non-profit that supports people with disabilities on Cape Cod.

On September 17th, Laurie Bowen and Kristin Broadley, founders of Centerville Pie Company, appeared on “The Oprah Winfrey Show®” where it was announced that Harry & David would work with them to produce pies by the thousands. Not only will Harry & David provide proceeds from pie sales to Laurie and Kristin, but they are more than matching the donations to Cape Abilities previously contributed by the Centerville Pie Company.

“We are both proud and thrilled to help Laurie and Kristin’s dream come true,” commented Gail Simon, VP Brand Marketing and Communications.

The Harry & David story is not unlike that of the Centerville Pie Company, having begun with two brothers and a dream of bringing their beloved Royal Riviera® Pears from the orchards of the Rogue Valley to New York City.

Laurie and Kristin recently visited the Harry & David Orchards and Headquarters in Medford, Oregon as part of the hands-on recipe testing and tasting to ensure that the pies will be authentic and match the flavor profiles that Harry & David and the Centerville Pie Company hold as high standards. The Centerville Chicken Pies are a delectable, satisfying addition to Harry & David unlike any other.

“I’ve always loved Harry & David. The food, the quality, the story. It’s a dream come true for us. We’re so thankful,” says Laurie Bowen.

Centerville Chicken Pies are currently available for order at or by calling (866) 233-7000. Beginning in October, pies will be featured in Harry and David Catalogs and available for purchase in stores nationwide. Pies can be purchased individually for $20 each or in pairs for $40, plus an additional delivery charge to ensure it arrives in perfect condition, packed in dry ice and shipped two day express. Customers can also go Deluxe with the Harry & David 3-Month, 6-Month or 12-Month Heritage Pie Club, which begins with the Centerville Chicken Pie featured in November.
