A piroshky (Pee-roash-KEE) is a hand held pie made of yeast-leavened dough, stuffed with a sweet or savory filling and either fried or baked. Common fillings include meats, vegetables, fruits or jams. It’s described as a great on-the-go food that you can enjoy for breakfast, lunch, dinner or even a snack.

The owner of Piroshky Piroshky, Olga Sagan, said it feels “indescribable” to know people across the country are enjoying her hand held pies.

“Food brings people together,” Sagan said.

She explained the bakery began doing pop-up events during the coronavirus pandemic when foot traffic had decreased at the store. Sagan said they started in Washington and then they decided to expand.

Piroshky Piroshky is currently touring across the United States, making 20 to 24 stops a month, to celebrate its 30th anniversary. This will be the first time the bakery has traveled to Ohio. The bakery choose to make two stops in Ohio - Dayton and Cincinnati - because that’s where its fans suggested. Other stops include Texas, California Oregon, Utah, Nevada, Illinois and North Carolina.
