Creating authentic Italian cuisine has been a passion in the Forti family for 100 years. With humble beginnings in Hibbing, the recipes passed along to each generation are inspired by the diverse immigrant population that helped build the iron range. Pride is taken in using the same hand crafted approach to baking that was used when Sunrise Gourmet began in 1913.
With 100 years comes hard work, innovation and now – expansion. To help celebrate their100 year anniversary, fourth generation owner Tom Forti has opened a retail location in St. Paul to bring fresh Sunrise Gourmet creations to the it’s loyal customer base in the Twin Cities. Customers can expect the same high quality product selection that helped make Sunrise a tradition on the iron range.
The selection includes all of their main product offerings along with new – soon to be – favorites like fresh pasta, Stromboli, and Philly Rolls. Also for the first time, products only found at the Sunrise Bakery will be available in the Twin Cities. Coffee cakes, pastries, specialty breads, and Potica will be available daily.
We believe that good food is more enjoyable when it is shared with those around you. The Forti family invites you to make this a regular stop when shopping for your family and friends.
