Who We Are

Our History

Mr. Sticky’s® Inc. started as a family business created and operated by Phil Poorman, his wife, and four children. In the beginning, the family was preparing and serving food in the Boarding House Restaurant at the Grange Fair and Encampment located in Centre Hall, Pennsylvania. A well known Sugar Valley baker, who was a cook at the restaurant, shared a sticky bun recipe with Phil. After several months reworking the recipe, an EXTREMELY ADDICTIVE STICKY BUN appeared on the breakfast buffet at the fair. As is often said, “The rest is history.” However, let us tell you the rest of the story.

Mr. Sticky’s complete bakery on wheels first appeared in May 2000 at the Citizens Hose Firemen’s Carnival in Jersey Shore, PA. Mr. Sticky’s concession trailer baked very sticky, sticky buns from scratch with the prep work and baking done inside the concession trailer. Mr. Sticky’s concession trailer was soon serving buns along Route 220 in Linden, PA. Folks were stopping by to purchase buns by the dozen and half dozen for office treats, birthdays, holidays, gifts, and celebrations of all kinds. Sticky buns were no longer just for breakfast anymore. It wasn’t long before a second concession trailer was on the road with both trailers featuring fresh coffee and Mr. Sticky’s Homemade Sticky Buns.

Due to year-round demand and the cold weather during winter time, especially when baking starts at 4 o’clock in the morning, it became obvious that Mr. Sticky’s needed a permanent location. Mr. Sticky’s, Inc. is now located in a permanent building, in the Golden Plaza, at 1948 East Third St, Williamsport, PA. We offer “Extremely Satisfying” sandwiches on Mr. Sticky’s homemade rolls, homemade soups, and salads. Our “Extremely Awesome“ customers may use our drive-thru window or pick up at the counter inside and relax in our dining area where temptation to eat dessert first is always present.

With four varieties of buns it is hard to decide which is the best: the regular Mr. Sticky, the walnut sticky, or the cinnamon bun loaded with Mr. Sticky’s own cream cheese icing or peanut butter icing topped with milk chocolate curls; so, come in, indulge, and you decide.
