Rise'n Roll Bakery opening downtown Indianapolis location

The Amish bakery will have a soft opening Aug. 18-19, then a grand opening Friday, Aug. 20.

INDIANAPOLIS — Downtown Indy is getting a sweet addition. Amish bakery Rise'n Roll will have a grand opening for its newest location Friday, Aug. 20.

Known for its award-winning cinnamon caramel donut, Rise'n Roll already has four central Indiana locations:

  • Avon: 9263 E. U.S. Hwy 36
  • Broad Ripple: 6311 E. Westfield Blvd.
  • Fishers: 9705 Fishers District Dr., Suite 760
  • Greenwood: 1277 North State Road 135

The downtown Indianapolis location will have a soft opening Aug. 18-19. A portion of the sales from those days will go to the Wheeler Mission. At Friday's grand opening, the bakery will present a check to the organization.

"We always look for something to get involved with in the community just to give back a little bit and Wheeler’s right around the corner," said Rise'n Roll franchisee Casey McGaughey. "They do great work, important work with the community here. We thought it would be a great partner."

Some Rise'n Roll fans will also get a big reason to show up early Friday: free sweet treats.

The first 100 people in line at Friday's grand opening will win free sweet treats. The first person will get free donuts every week for one year. The next two people will get free donuts every month for a year. The next 22 people will get a free dozen donuts. The remaining 75 will get a coupon for one free donut.

The incentives have been the reason for big turnouts at previous store openings

"Everywhere we go I feel like people get pretty excited about the brand," said Rise'n Roll franchisee Casey McGaughey. "We've had people camping out overnight," McGaughey said.

The bakery is located on the first floor of the Ardmore apartment building and retail space, at the southwest corner of East new York and Delaware streets.
