Introducing Asad Muhammad, Owner of Supreme Bean Pies

The Face Behind Those Delicious Pies

Though just a high school senior, Asad Muhammad is the businessman and baker behind a increasingly popular item in the Grab 'n' Go Deli: the Supreme Bean Pie and the Supreme Butternut Squash Pie.

Asad has been a business owner and baker for the past three years, alongside being a diligent student. Now he's making a profit selling his pies in a few locations across Rochester, like our store and the Public Market.

He learned how to develop and run a business through a young entrepreneur program that he took as a student at Joseph C. Wilson Magnet High School Commencement Academy in Rochester.  Thanks to that experience, he has discovered a passion that he hopes to pursue in the future.

"I really love running the business, being a business owner, and I also love baking," he told us when he stopped by this week to drop off a fresh batch of pies.  

Asad's next step is college, where he hopes to attend the University of Rochester or the University at Buffalo. With such a bright future ahead of him, we're grateful to be able to make his pies available to our customers.

Asad's pies are currently in the deli. Pick one up this week--they're perfect for a holiday treat!
