Hi-Rise Bread Company

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, incorporating extra-rich European-style butter and local fruits for pies and tarts. In store, they offer soups and sandwiches, dinners sold fresh and frozen, and now fresh produce. At the market find their breads, granola, crackers, loaf cakes, pastries, and preserves to bring home!
