About the Stick Boy Bread Company:
Katie Dies and her husband, Josh, are the owners of Stick Boy Bread Company in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina where everything is made the old-fashioned way, from scratch in small batches! Katie never planned to open a bakery, but while a student at Appalachian State University, she worked part-time at the original Stick Boy Bread Company in Boone. Katie formed a deep and lasting friendship with the owners, Carson and Mindy Coatney. After graduation, Katie married Josh Dies, a fellow graduate of App State in 2003. When Josh’s drafting job required a move to Fuquay Varina, Katie and Josh knew that they would miss the bakery and their friends!
Once they settled in Fuquay Varina, Josh loved his new drafting job, but they both began to dream of something bigger, something they could do from scratch and share together. They decided that Fuquay Varina needed a bakery– a place where people could gather, share conversation, and have something yummy to eat!
January 2007, Katie and Josh sat down with Carson and Mindy and timidly asked them if they would help open a bakery in Fuquay-Varina. To their surprise (and excitement) Carson and Mindy agreed! Katie and Josh spent the next year training, baking test batches in their home oven, and transforming an old Western Auto into a bakery.
They worked hard, and plan to continue working hard, so that they can offer the best products and the best customer service in the area. Stick Boy is gearing up for the Fall season and will be introducing their famous Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Scones, Pumpkin Walnut Bread and Pumpkin Cheesecake in late September. Katie says they love feedback and enjoy hearing from Papa Spud’s customers!
