Grilled Sticky has a new home in Happy Valley
STATE COLLEGE – The Grilled Sticky has a new home.
The Corner Room, one of the hospitality properties owned by Hotel State College & Company, will now be downtown’s “new home” to get Ye Olde College Diner’s famous Grilled Stickies. The New York Times described grilled stickies as “an elongated cinnamon roll that, after baking, is reheated on a greased grill and served piping hot, sometimes with ice cream on top.” They were featured in Rick Sebak’s 1993 documentary “Pennsylvania Diners & Other Roadside Restaurants.”
“We couldn’t be happier to add this nostalgic brand to our historic lineup. The quality and tradition associated with the Diner’s Grilled Stickie pairs perfectly with our quest to continue to offer tried and true brands to our students, alumni and the State College community. Shiny and new establishments are popping up all over Centre County, but we are steadfastly committed to carrying on the traditions of quality and service originally inspired by some of the best hospitality pioneers in State College,” said Joe Shulman, CEO of Hotel State College & Company. The Corner Room will continue to sell the traditionally prepared grilled stickies for in-house consumption along with retail packages to go.
“I am very excited to partner with the Corner Room due to their reputation for quality and service and I’m confident they will carry on the good name we have worked so hard to build,” said Dan Rallis, Owner of Ye Olde College Diner. “We will continue to make our grilled stickies for the Corner Room in an upgraded production facility located in Centre County to insure the quality everyone has learned to expect.”
