About Mrs. T's
In The Community
From a Twardzik family staple to your family’s table, Mrs. T has been Serving Up Smiles long before there was a blue box with her name on it. Yes, there really is a Mrs. T behind all those boxes of delicious Pierogies. In fact, it’s Mary Twardzik’s original recipe that started this successful business back in 1952.
Mary’s son, Ted, spent his childhood watching, learning, and of course, tasting, as his mother and her friends made Pierogies for church suppers. After college, he spent a year working for an accounting firm before realizing this Polish specialty might have wider appeal. After all, if they did so well at church dinners, why wouldn’t they be a family favorite everywhere?
Sticking to his Schuylkill (pronounced Skoo-kil) County roots, Ted returned home to Shenandoah, PA and started making Pierogies in the very same kitchen where he had grown up watching his mother cook. Six weeks later, Mom asked him to move the mess elsewhere, and the rest is history. Ted set up shop in his father’s former tavern and began churning out those potato-filled pasta shells by the dozen!
The company has expanded to many of the surrounding buildings over the years, but that tavern still remains a part of the Ateeco (“A ‘T’ [for Twardzik] Company”) headquarters. Today, Ted's son, Tom is President of the company, which proudly employs nearly 230 people in its Pennsylvania plant. This makes Ateeco the largest employer in Shenandoah. With only 6,000 residents, this small town in Schuylkill County has made Ateeco the smiling success it is today!
Over 13 million Pierogies in 14 different varieties leave Ateeco’s kitchens every week. That’s over half a billion Pierogies a year! Whether it’s feeding a small family dinner or large U.S. Military Commissaries overseas, Mrs. T’s
has a size and a taste for everyone! For the family table, we sell our delicious Pierogies in package sizes of 12 and 24 in retail, convenience stores, and supermarkets. Larger counts of 48 and 72 are available for club and food service establishments, and Mini Pierogies come in 28 counts. From Shenandoah, Pennsylvania to Seattle, Washington, Mrs. T’s
Pierogies are distributed coast to coast, Serving Up Smiles all across America.
That is enough Pierogies to:
– cover more than 888 football fields
– circle the globe at the equator 1.2 times
– cross the home-state of PA more than 94 times
– cross the widest point in the US 8.5 times
