Rep. Zwiener Introduces Resolution Naming Kyle the Official “Pie Capital of Texas”

Austin, TX — State Representative Erin Zwiener (Driftwood) today laid out House Concurrent Resolution 89, which would name the City of Kyle the official “Pie Capital of Texas.” Laying out the resolution in front of the Culture, Recreation, and Tourism Committee, Rep. Zwiener pointed out Kyle is home to the Texas Pie Company, the Pie in the Sky Hot Air Balloon Festival, and multiple city-wide pie day celebrations each year.

"In recent years, the Central Texas community of Kyle has begun to garner attention as the Lone Star State’s premier source of delicious pies,” Rep. Zwiener said. “This includes everyone from young families starting out to the upper crust. In giving Kyle this designation, this slice of Texas will be able to expand their brand and continue to actively recruit pie-making companies while increasing pie-o-diversity in the area.”

HCR 89 would take effect this year and designate Kyle as the official Pie Capital of Texas for the next ten years.
