Rising Star Coffee Partners with Humble Pie Bakery to Launch Own Bakery

Since opening its first shop in Ohio City, Rising Star has always offered baked products from various local producers. But soon they will be producing those products themselves thanks to a new partnership with Diane Sikorski of Humble Pie Bakery. The high quality pastries will be produced in a kitchen in the Hildebrandt Building, where Rising Star currently has its roastery.
“It only makes sense,” says Robert Stockham, GM. “If you want the best quality you can get, then hire the best baker you can find. We were lucky to entice Diane to come and work for us. She has a great talent for food and presentation, and is truly tuned in to the local food market. If you have ever had one of her jams or pies, then you know what I am talking about.”

Rising Star hopes to begin offering the products at all three of their locations – Ohio City, Little Italy and Downtown – sometime in January. In addition to the pies that they already carry, the shops will soon carry biscuits with jam, muffins and cookies. Plans are in the works for more offerings down the line.

The products will only be available at Rising Star, adds Stockham.

“We want our shops to be destination locations, but who knows, we may need be open to offering our goods at wholesale,” he says.

Sikorski, who recently scrapped plans to open an Ohio City bakeshop of her own, relishes the opportunity to work with such a great local company.

“When you have a great fit, how can you say no?” Diane Sikorski offers. “There are few companies that have the conviction to quality that Rising Star does. When your values align so closely, you know that this is a great opportunity.”
