Rise’n Roll, Middlebury

New bakery in Middlebury

The Rise’n Roll Bakery has arrived in Middlebury, ready to cater to carbaholics.

Located at 1065 N. 1150 West, the new bakery got its start from the front porch of a local Amish couple’s home, and has since evolved into a full-scale bakery and deli specializing in breads, pies, cakes and other baked goods.

“We are a general bakery and deli that was Amish-owned up until about a month and a half ago,” said Tom Hart, general manager of the new bakery. “The young Amish couple who originally owned the business baked goods out of their own kitchen and then would sell them right off of their front porch.”

The business is now fully stand-alone with a new building and new owners. Hart said the old-world Amish charm that gave the original business its name is still evident in every aspect of the new bakery, right down to the Amish cooks in the kitchen.

“Myself and one other girl who works at the deli are actually the only ones still working here that are not Amish,” Hart said, noting that the original owners are still heavily involved in the new bakery’s day-to-day operations. “When the time came to expand the business again, the original owners decided they had pushed it as far as they could while living within their Amish faith.

“So now, to allow it to expand, they chose to sell so that the business could continue to grow to its full potential,” he said.

And grow it has, offering everything from a deli to doughnuts, cinnamon rolls, cookies, cakes, pies and breads.

“We have a full-line deli, where you can get sandwiches, salads, biscuits and gravy in the morning, things like that,” Hart said. “We also have a lot of unique breads and goodies that we have a following on, and since we’ve moved out to our new location, we’ve expanded our offerings to things like container and bulk foods as well.”
