OUr FAmily’s STORY
In 1984, founders Tadeusz and Hania Robieniek made the decision to leave their home, families, and teaching jobs in Gdańsk, Poland in search of the American Dream. With two suitcases and only $100 between them, they set off for America; leaving everything behind, their jobs, their homes, and even their two young daughters… Despite many hardships, they were determined to succeed.
Ultimately Buffalo, NY was chosen as where the Robieniek family would establish their American roots. After two long years of separation, daughters Monika and Ania were finally able to join their parents in America.
By 1987, the Robienieks taught themselves to speak English while working for E.M. Bakery in the bustling Broadway Market. They eventually gained a strong foothold in the east side of Buffalo. Through many struggles and trials they were able to purchase E.M. Bakery and E.M. “Chrusciki” Bakery was born!
In 2010, their daughter Ania took over the business so that her parents could enjoy retirement. Ania expanded the business and opened a second location in Lancaster. The business grew to offer wholesale products, wedding cakes, catering, nationwide shipping, pierogi, and more!
In 2018, Ania & the team saw a need for a clean label, traditional pierogi on the market place. They took the Chrusciki Bakery pierogi and rebranded by opening a second company called “Simply Pierogi”. In 2019, Simply Pierogi became “The Official Pierogi of The Buffalo Sabres”.
As demand for Chrusciki baked goods and Simply Pierogi continued to grow, in 2020 a new business venture began. Chrusciki Bakery, Simply Pierogi, & the new Sto Lat Bar all opened under one roof in the former Sears building at The Eastern Hills Mall. This unique establishment includes all of Chrusciki Bakery’s delicacies, quick-service Polish cuisine through Simply Pierogi Polish Kitchen, and beer, wine, signature cocktails, and more for lunch and dinner at Sto Lat Bar.
As our business has changed throughout the years one thing stays the same and that is the joy of working together as a family!
Sto Lat Bar is located in the NEW BFLO District at the Eastern Hills Mall. We share a large open format space with Chrusciki Bakery and Simply Pierogi Polish Kitchen. Our shared space can be accessed by both the front and side entrances.
