Rene Becker opened Hi-Rise in 1996 with a crew of six, big ideas, and a simple goal: to make staple homey foods better than home-made. He started with bread — using organic wheat, rye, and corn from independent mills — and soon moved to pastries, encorporating extra-rich European-style butter and local fruits for pies and tarts. Naturally, soups and sandwiches came next utilizing the same philosophy of house made and hand selected ingredients. The trend continued over the years and now Hi-Rise has a long list of products made daily including breads, cakes, cookies, granola, preserves, and crackers. Along with a wide variety of sandwiches, Hi-rise offers dinners sold fresh and frozen, from pot pies and stews to lasagnas with house-made pasta. Using carefully-sourced ingredients and making everything from scratch, Hi-Rise is committed to producing the highest quality baked goods in a comfortable neighborhood setting.
