Its headquarters are in the Marie Callender\'s Corporate Support Center in Mission Viejo, Orange County, California. One East Side Mario\'s restaurant in Lakewood, California is part of the chain, a remnant of the period (1997-2000) when the chain owned the ESM concept, purchased from Pepsico. The type of cuisine served is mainly American, although many of the dishes are slanted towards styles of preparation that resemble Italian, Mexican, French, Cajun, or Chinese. Soups and sandwiches are available as meals or à la carte. Pies are signature items on the dessert menu: there are over 30 varieties available. Pies can be purchased whole or by-the-slice.
