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

Warrington Country Club offers the choice of two bakeries for their wedding cakes. I, of course, went with Rillings as I grew up with Rillings and they have the best cakes ever! I was not disappointed! My cake was absolutely Breath taking. More people had comments about the cake, not just asthetically pleasing, but delicious! We had two flavors, white pound cake with white icing and chocolate chip pound with white icing. The left overs were sent home with us and the next day we had a brunch, I saw several relatives go back for second and third pieces of cake.
We also added a couple of trays of mini desserts, they too were awesome!
Diane was a doll to work with, she obviously takes pride in her work and enjoys it as well.
Can't wait for my anniversary to have the cake topper! I am sure it will still be delicious!

Rillings produced a gorgeous and delicious wedding cake. The cake exceeded my expectations in the beautiful design, and we loved how you incorporated our bride batter/groom pitcher cake topper and the Philly Phanatic bride/Mr. Met groom ornaments on the cake too. The guests thought that was great! In addition, it was also delicious. The younger set loved the chocolate chip slices, and the almond pound cake was heavenly. Can't wait to have it from our 1 year saved top!

Delicious cake! Our cake from Rilling's was included in the Reception package so I am not sure of the value but I assume its a good value! We had chocolate chip pound cake and vanilla. We loved the chocolate chip. The inexpensive upgrade to the buttercream icing was very tasty! They offer a good variety of samples for their cake tasting. The sugar flowers and detail design was done very nicely! We hope to order cakes from Rillings in the future!

Rilling's is a cute little bakery that has been around for a very long time. Another thing we found out about through warrington country club (cake was included in wedding costs there). We are so glad we chose Rillings. We had so many options between cake design and flavor (ALL DELICIOUS). We chose chocolate chip for 2 layers and raspberry almond swirl for the others. Sounds awesome, right? They worked with me using my bouquet to make matching flowers on the cake and it was perfect. I live about an hour from here, and definitely plan on going back for cakes/desserts for special occasions. so yummy!

Be careful when you read reviews for Rillings because some are for the Rillings on Southampton Road. This review is for the one on Street Road. I started with Rillings because our venue used them as the provider for the cake. We did a raspberry pound cake and chocolate chip pound cake with vanilla buttercream and fudge scrolls throughout on the icing. We also had them do a groom's cake that looked like a breakfast plate complete with toast, bacon and eggs - it was UNREAL. My groom loves breakfast and also cried when he saw it. I met with Diane personally at the shop and she was so pumped to do the breakfast cake and very open to ideas on the wedding cake. Everything was perfect (and delicious!)

This is just to let anyone who is reading this know that the Rillings on Southampton Rd was in NO WAY offiiliated with he original Rillings family. They sold that building in the 80s where the owner and his staff misrepresented it and ran it into the ground til they went out of business and were forced to close in January of 2012. The original Rillings that dotted philadelphia for years is alive and well and now ran by its 3rd generation in Warminster. Rillingsbakery.net
