Chevrolet Traverses Tote Pie in Celebration of Pi Day

The Chevrolet Traverse mid-size SUV has enough cargo room for more than 50 pies – and that’s just behind the third row.

In celebration of Pi Day, a day noted by math enthusiasts on Friday, March 14, 2014 (3/14) for the mathematical constant Pi, Chevrolet delivered fresh baked Grand Traverse Pie Company ABC pies (with Michigan apples, blueberries and cherries) using 2014 Chevrolet Traverse mid-size SUVs throughout southeastern Michigan.

The Traverse offers a class-leading 116.3 cu. ft. of maximum cargo room and best-in-class space behind the third row – enough space for more than 50 pies. But how many Traverses would it take to carry all the pies that Grand Traverse Pie Company’s shops produce annually? And what about the Michigan apples, cherries and blueberries that go into their ABC pies? Here’s some food for thought:

  • The space behind the third row of 10,000 Traverses would be required to carry the half million pies per year that are produced in all of Grand Traverse Pie Company’s pie shops
  • 49 Traverses would be required to tow the more than 250,000 pounds of Michigan apples that are used*
  • 49 Traverses would be required to tow the more than 250,000 pounds of Michigan cherries*
  • 20 Traverses would be required to tow the more than 100,000 pounds of Michigan blueberries*

All Grand Traverse Pie Company locations offered customers a free slice of pie with any purchase as part of a statewide celebration of Michigan’s food and agriculture businesses that prosper due to the state’s quality education opportunities. The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development is sponsoring the celebration. All in all, Grand Traverse Pie Company plans to give around 10,000 slices of pie away for Pi Day!
