The Pie Guy

A graduate of Western Kentucky University, Jon finished his MBA here Louisville at Bellarmine University in the Spring of 2013.  In addition to being the official "Pie Guy" about town, he'll confess that as a boy, he didn't care for nuts, so the kitchen used to make special pies just for him. Luckily for Kern's he has grown out of that preference!

Jon has worked in direct sales since January 2009, servicing Kern's Kitchen's customers with their best interest in mind. He is creative and proactive in his quest to drive sales for his distributors, and his goal to make Derby-Pie® a nationally recognized brand.

For Chefs/Restauranteurs


Derby-Pie® chocolate nut pie is a treasured  tradition for many families. By offering it, your restaurant becomes part of that heritage. While the recipe is ours alone, many chefs have their own serving techniques that allow them to put their own special touches on the presentation and complement the flavors in a way that expresses their unique style and brand.

Kind Words

So good.

This past Christmas, I was given a (very) small sliver of your Derby pie...very small...very very very small.

Actually it was a sliver from a piece that was given to a co-worker, and she shared. After tasting my sliver - I am most appreciative of her sharing with me.

I am a baker, and come from a long line of great southern cooks, however - this was the best (store bought ) pie I have ever eaten. THE best. SO GOOD in fact that I called my 90 year old mother and told her about it. Her remark was. I wonder why we never found out about them before now?? Well - I just don't have an answer to that question. But I can tell you most assuredly, that I will find a place to buy these pies locally or hopefully nearby and if I cannot I will order them most faithfully from Kern's Kitchen."
