If you aren't from Southern California and ever plan to visit, you should make time to eat at one of its finest establishments -- The Apple Pan -- which has been open for business since 1947. If you are from here, get there as soon as possible.
'The Apple Pan' Sells Thousands Of Pies On Thanksgiving
The Hollywood hotspot is known for its excellent burgers and sandwiches, but it is all about making mouthwatering pies during the holidays. We're told Apple Pan sold over TWO THOUSAND pies this Thanksgiving, a new record, and it's not just one flavor. The choices include apple, pumpkin, and boysenberry cream -- but real insiders go for the legendary banana cream pie. Also, if you are hoping to get one of these amazing pies, they are available for pre-order now through November 20th until they sell out!

Several years ago, Apple Pan added a little more celebrity firepower after Irving and Shelli Azoff purchased the business.
The Azoffs were huge fans of the restaurant, often visiting after Hollywood awards shows, and concerts at the Forum. Shelli Azoff first visited the hotspot around thirty years ago and loved everything about it. Of course, the previous owners wanted to make sure the integrity of the restaurant would remain intact, which is exactly what the Azoffs wanted too. The family wasn’t interested in changing anything about The Apple Pan.
The Legendary Banana Cream Pie
If you have been living under a rock, Irving Azoff is a legendary music mogul and his wife is almost more famous than him. The couple previously owned the 'Five Guys' burger chain and has plenty of experience in the restaurant business. Plus, as the managing partner of the Forum, one of Shelli's responsibilities was "finding the food service partners, which includes Loteria Grill, Boo’s Philly Cheesesteaks, Carney’s, and Pink’s Hot Dogs."
"The restaurant is ours to keep and protect what they built," Shelli said. Adding, "We didn’t buy the restaurant because we were motivated by finances. Having this institution in our family was important because it’s always been a part of our life. Plus we think it’s really good. We made a promise that we intend to keep. We’d like to keep the small family business alive, and maintain what Sunny and her family spent a lifetime building."
Now, make sure you order your pie next year.
