Stawnichy’s Perogy Contest

Posted: February 1, 2023 Category: Media Releases, Our Team, Vendor, Recipe,

Our yearly recipe contest is back! Last year we challenged you to submit your ideas for a brand new smokie concept. This year, it’s perogies! We want to add a new perogy flavour to our menu, and want you to be our chefs. Think innovative, never-before-done ingredient combinations. If yours is chosen – we will produce them!


This year we’re shaking things up a bit to find a winner; instead of an online poll, we’re going to see which new perogy submission sells the most. All three finalist flavours will be sold in both our Beverly and Mundare delis, and we want to see which one you keep coming back for!

Details & Rules

This contest will take place in three phases:

Phase 1 – February 1, 2023 to February 15, 2023

  • On February 1 2023, we will be posting on our Facebook and Instagram accounts asking for customer submissions for the type of perogy they think would be the best addition to our lineup
  • We will take submissions via comments on those posts until February 15, 2023.
  • The more inventive and bold, the better!

Phase 2 – February 15 2023 to May 1 2023

  • Deadline to enter is February 15, 2023
  • At that point, we will have a panel of perogy pros pick their THREE favourite submissions

*If more than one person submits the same flavour combination that is eventually picked as part of our finalists, all submitters will be placed in a random draw

  • On April 3rd, 2023, we will announce the three finalists and their successful perogy creations, and begin production!

Phase 3 – May 1, 2023 to September, 1 2023

  • On May 1, 2023, we will launch the three flavours of perogies for sale in all of our locations.
  • On Sept 8, 2023, we will count all sales, and announce the grand prize winner.
  • In addition to prizes, the winner will be celebrated on our social media as well as in our Fall newsletter.


  • Finalists will receive THREE PACKS of their submitted perogy.  These will be available for pickup as of September 15th, 2023.
  • Grand Prize Winner will receive ONE CASE (15 packs) of their winning perogy, as well as it being added to our regular lineup of products.  The case will be available for pickup September 15th, 2023.
