Kolache Shoppe has created a legacy of making authentic and delicious kolaches that spans about half a century. First established in 1970, the recipe was developed by Erwin Ahrens after “talking with all of the Czech grandmothers." He learned from them the secret to creating “successful kolaches:” they should be made from scratch, made from fresh ingredients, and must be given time to rise. In 2006, Mr. Ahrens met Randy Hines, who wanted to learn the art of kolache making. That friendship and mentorship turned into a partnership, and by 2014, Mr. Ahrens officially passed the reins to Mr. Hines. From then, until now, people expect nothing but the yummiest kolaches, with their wonderfully tasty fillings from the Kolache Shoppe. Choose from the classics or seasonal varieties, from sweet to savory, and even for those with vegetarian needs.
