Aussie Pie GuyAussie Pie Guy – Mike
Aussie Pie Guy began with a craving – a craving for a delicious Aussie pie. Matt Fitzhardinge, Linda Lowery and Kayleigh Lum had traveled/lived in Australia and fell in love with Aussie pies. Upon returning to Vancouver, they searched high and low for authentic Aussie pies and to their dismay, their search was unfounded…and then the light bulb turned on.
