Grilled stickies are back and Eat’n Park is partnering with McKees Rocks-based 5 Generation Bakers to provide the tasty foundation of the classic treat.
“Our Grilled Stickies are an iconic item, beloved by Pittsburghers near and far,” said Amanda Giacobbi, senior director of restaurant marketing for Eat’n Park via statement.
“We’re delighted to be able to bring back Grilled Stickies and create smiles for future generations.”
Eat’n Park’s sticky loaf production was temporarily paused due to a supply chain disruption earlier this year.
The Baker family has been baking in Pittsburgh since 1875, and they have been entrusted to partner in the baking of Eat’n Park’s proprietary sticky loaf. Since 1949, Eat'n Park Restaurants has been a family-owned restaurant chain, serving guests across Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia.
The Baker family is best known for Jenny Lee Swirl Bread, a round loaf flavored with cinnamon which has been voted the best bread by QVC shopping network viewers.
The bakery is currently building a second-shift team to increase production to meet demand.
“The collaboration between 5 Generation Bakers and Eat’n Park unites two legacy, multi-generational, Pittsburgh-based brands to continue a unique tradition,” said Scott Baker, president of 5 Generation Bakers, said via statement.
“We are proud to use our five generations of baking expertise to help bring back Grilled Stickies for Eat’n Park guests across the region.”
Eat’n Park will also resume serving Grilled Stickies to any guest celebrating a birthday at their local Eat’n Park restaurant.
