Kyle and Tyler Krupa live for pierogies, and now the Kingston brothers' products are headed to a major grocery chain.

Twin brothers Kyle and Tyler learned how to make pierogies from their grandmother when they were just children. In 2020, the Krupa boys decided to launch their own pierogi business after inheriting $6,000. They began making pierogies out of a rented kitchen and eventually became successful enough to open up their own shop in Kingston, New York.

While there are some areas of the country where pierogis are extremely popular, much of the United States has yet to truly embrace the Eastern European pasta. While areas with large concentrations of Polish or Ukrainian families have easy access to those heavenly pillows of potato and cheese, the rest of the country has had to rely on mass-produced pierogies found in the freezer section.

Growing up in Northern New Jersey, I was lucky enough to grow up eating authentic pierogies. There's nothing better than eating a dish of piping hot pierogies with some fried onions and a side of sour cream on a chilly winter day.
