Master Bakers Since 1936

~

Willy Rilling immigrated to the United States from Germany at age 18 in 1927.

Martha Schmid who would later meet and marry Willy in 1932 emigrated at age 16 in 1926. They taught themselves to read and write

English and saved their meager salaries diligently so that by 1936 when their daughter

Martha was 6 months old, they leased and opened their first small bakery in the Brewery town neighborhood of Philadelphia at

26th and Girard Ave. near Fairmont Park. In those days, before refrigeration was common and supermarkets were unknown, customers

shopped several times a day at their local merchants. The store was open 6 ½ days a week from 6 am till 11pm (1/2 day on Sunday)

and continually baked fresh all day. The last oven load of pastries emerged as the 9pm movie let out. The bakery prospered and in 1939

they relocated to a location at 6645 Castor Ave. in the far Northeast of Philadelphia an area, which was then rural. The neighborhood

grew and the bakery gained a fine reputation that brought customers from near and far. But the stress of running a highly hands on

business day and night made the Rilling’s sell this store and take a much needed hiatus in 1948. Six months later, well rested

and missing the business that they devoted their life to, they opened their next bakery at 7328 Frankford Ave. in the Mayfair

Section of Philadelphia were they stayed until 1952. Daughter Martha joined the business as a salesgirl after school hours at

age 13. Her younger sister Lillian also helped out.

Never a couple to be idle for long; they opened a new bakery at 11704 Bustleton Ave. in the Lumar Park section of Somerton

in 1953 where they stayed until 1959. In 1962 they opened their last store at 8756 Frankford Ave. when daughter Martha and

son-in-law George Volz, joined the business. Martha Rilling retired from the bakery to help care for her grandchildren,

including Carl Volz (born1959), Michael Volz (born 1962), and Diane Volz Tino (born 1969).

Rilling Grandchildren 1962 • Frankford Avenue George and Martha took full-time responsibility for the bakery in 1976 but

"Poppy" Rilling continued to help out until shortly before his death in 1983. In a family business like this, children start out young—

helping wash pans, sweep floors, fold boxes and run errands at ages as young as 10 or 11. Carl, Michael, and Diane all learned

responsibility early. In 1981, with the children growing into adulthood, the Volz family opened a second store in the Davisville Shopping

Center in Warminster. Son Michael Volz owns and operates this location today. His sister, Diane Volz Tino, has been the store

manager since he took over in 1989. In 1984 the family embarked on a great expansion, by opening a 20,000 square foot building on

Southampton Road in Philadelphia and during the 1980’s had as many as 7 retail stores at one time. Sadly, they found that they could not

operate this widespread system of baking at a central location and shipping baked goods, together with preparing other wholesale baked

goods, in an efficient and profitable manner and in 1992 we sold this location to someone outside the original family. This NEW owner

closed his business, Feburary 2012.

Michael, and his sister Diane, continue the long tradition that Willy and Martha started over 76 years ago. As grandchildren and

children they learned lessons well and they strive to satisfy the many customers they have made through the years and they

welcome new customers with the same dedication to quality and service. Read less

Rilling's became our baker for the wedding due to an unfortunate event but they were able to accommodate us immensely as we scrambled (a little) to figure out what we would do for our wedding cake. We met with Diane for a tasting and consultation three months prior to the wedding and she already had all of our information that was provided to the previous baker. This was very helpful as we were set on the style cake we had already chosen. The cake we tried was delicious and we chose the chocolate chip pound cake and the raspberry swirl pound cake. We had a larger cake topper which was no problem for them and they made sure that we would have enough cake for all of our guests.
They delivered the cake to the venue without any need for communication with us and we first saw the cake at the reception. The cake was beautiful and had everything we asked for. Working with Rilling's was so easy and they were so accommodating after we came to them that close to the wedding. If I was in need for a cake for an event, I wouldn’t go anywhere but Rilling's.

We had a choice of several bakeries to use for our cake, but there was no question we were going to choose Rilling's from the start. They provided top quality service from the very beginning. Our cake tasting was delicious! They also spent time going over the various decor options and I couldn't be happier with what we chose. The cake was beautiful and a true highlight of our wedding day.

We used Rillings Bakery for our wedding cake in June and we could not have been happier! They were so easy to work with, and when we went in for our tasting we were able to try a wide variety of flavors and they were all so delicious (I love the almond mixed with the raspberry with the buttercream frosting). Diane was such a huge help, she was so friendly and was able to make recommendations like how much cake we needed (we had no idea) and was so friendly! When we arrived on the day of the wedding I was blown away at how beautifully designed the cake was. I highly recommend Rillings, you will not be disappointed!

Rilling's bakery was suggested to us by our wedding venue (among a few others) but we were so happy we chose them! I'm not the biggest dessert fan but by the time we started trying cakes I started to change my mind! I never knew pound cake and icing could come in so many shapes, sizes, and flavors! Don't get me started on the icing ;) The woman who's family has owned it for years (I'm sorry I can't remember it the moment) was phenomenal in every way. She was so kind, patient, and down to earth. She made picking cake(s) easy and not even a little stressful. She did an excellent job and explaining every detail (who knew there were so many decisions to make?) and was always patient. She never once tried to up selling but did give us endless options. Our cakes (we had a 250 person wedding so there had to be multiple) turned out exactly how she said they would, even better, I think! Our guests were so pleased. We will definitely be back :) Thanks so much again.

Diane and Terry went above and beyond to help my husband and I select a cake for our wedding day. We were overseas but planning the wedding for our return, and they made sure we were able to sample the cake with the little time we had before our big day. The cake was one of the best wedding cakes I've ever had, and I'm not even a big cake person. We selected pumpkin chocolate chip with cream cheese icing, and it couldn't have been any more perfect. We would use them all over again.

I was really disappointed with the look of my wedding cake. The cake itself was tasty and nothing short of what I expected in terms of taste but you can't take memorable pictures of how the cake tasted. The appearance of that cake is what matters, especially when you are getting married. In fact, for most weddings, it's a highlight of the reception - cutting the cake. I, however, did not do that because my cake looked NOTHING like the cake I was promised for my wedding. Despite providing the staff with specific pictures and picking out ribbon color and what not, we did not get what we paid for AT ALL. It looked like a clown cake - a cake that you would expect to see at a child's birthday party - not an indian wedding. I went with Rillings because of it's connection with my reception venue - Jericho National but I regret that decision deeply. VERY DISAPPOINTED BRIDE.

Preema I am sorry to hear that you were disappointed with the decoration of your wedding cake. I wish you would have reached out to me directly months ago as Carmella at Jericho said everything was wonderful when I asked. We did have numerous appointments scheduled to finalize your decorations that you did not attend or even cancel in advance. Best of Luck to you both, many years of Health and Happiness. Diane
