Pierogi prince and restaurateur Cezary Grosfeld opened Pierogies Factory, his fast-casual tribute to hearty Polish cuisine, today in Wheat Ridge at 39th Avenue and Wadsworth Boulevard in the former home of a Bubba Chinos. Pierogies Factory is open for pastries and Dazbog coffee starting at 6:30 a.m. and serves the savory Polish dumplings with five different fillings, cabbage rolls, beef goulash, kielbasa sandwiches and other fare until 8 p.m.

Frozen pierogies are also available by the bag for takeout and Grosfeld's company also offers catering for up to 200 people and food truck appearances for groups of more than 50. We stopped by for an early lunch and a line was already forming for mostly to-go orders. Grosfeld also owns Polished Tavern downtown, for those looking for infused vodkas to go with their pierogies, and the Pierogies Factory food truck.

While pierogies may not be the next big fast-casual wave after Mission-style burritos, Denver's Slavic population — and anyone who's moved hear from Chicago and the Northeast — certainly seems ready for quick-service Polish food.
