About Yatala Pies
Yatala Pies has been a landmark in the Yatala area of Queensland Australia for more than 130 years. From humble beginnings as a small pie shop on the Pacific Highway, the company has relocated to large, modern, landscaped premises nearby (exit 38 Yatala North off the M1) and employs 70 staff. From modest sales of about 200 pies a day a little over a decade ago, the company now sells more than 3,500 pies a day, as well as hundreds of sweet pastries.
It features a drive through for travellers on the Pacific Motorway
