As the old English proverb goes, a pie a day keeps the doctor away – or something along those lines.

Australian icon Banjos Bakery Cafe is giving away a pie a day for a year to one lucky competition winner who can guess their next signature pie flavour.

Banjos Bakery Cafe is renowned for their unique flavors, with pies such as Chicken Parmigiana, Double Cheeseburger and Tasmanian Scallop already on their menu, so Aussies will have to get creative in guessing the new addition.

Chief Executive Officer Jessica Saxby says she wants pie-lovers to think outside the box when taking their guesses.

“Banjo’s Bakery Café hopes to capture the imagination of our pie-loving nation and see what out-of-the-box flavours our new and existing customers guess for our next Signature Pie,” said Ms Saxby

“Our team have had a wonderful time creating all of the Signature Pies, from concept and taste-testing, to seeing our lovely customers enjoy them – perhaps some of the consumer suggestions will become future staples on our menu!” she said.

Banjos Bakery Cafe has over 41 franchise stores in sells over 4 million pies every year, their most popular being the classic party pie.

Ms Saxby says the aim of the competition is to bring Aussies together through their love of pastries.

“Banjo’s puts community at its core and we hope during this tough and challenging time, guessing the new and innovative pie flavour can bring together families and friends, and provide a welcome distraction,” she said.

“Pies bring up nostalgic childhood memories, such as weekend sporting matches, school tuckshop treats and country road trips – we want to encourage these memories and conversations in the thought process.”

Submission to the comp can be made at the Banjos Bakery Cafe Website, and entries close on 7 June, with the new flavour announced on Wednesday 17 June.
