Tootie Pies in Straub's of St. Louis

BOERNE, TX--(Marketwire - December 11, 2008) - The Tootie Pie Company, Inc. (OTCBB: TOOT), a premium baker and seller of high-quality, handmade pies, is pleased to announce that their pies will be available immediately at Straub's Grocery Stores in the greater St. Louis, Missouri area.

"Straub's is an important high-end grocery customer in a brand-new market; just in time for the holiday season. Our pies have been selling very well in Texas-based HEB, HEB Central Markets and Rice Epicurean stores; all of which offer a comparable customer experience to Straub's. We are confident Tootie Pies will be equally well received in this important new market and this further validates our expansion opportunities in the Retail Grocery sector," said Don Merrill, President & CEO, the Tootie Pie Company, Inc.

Retail sales are driven by individual consumers across the country through the Company's website tootiepieco.com, orders via telephone and in-store sales. Corporate sales provide unique corporate gifts for businesses looking to show appreciation to their clients and employees during the holidays or throughout the year with a Pie of the Month Club. Wholesale is made up of regional and national broad-line foodservice distributors who purchase pies and then resell them to restaurants, high-end retail grocery stores, hotels, coffee shops and caterers.
