Alabama NewsCenter – Alabama foodies should Czech out American Kolache

Watching Chad Slade make kolaches is surreal. The man is big – a former offensive lineman for Auburn, he also played for eight years in the NFL – so seeing his huge hands gently fill and shape the little pastries is riveting.

But the owner of American Kolache in Vestavia knows how to whip up some baked goods, and he does it well.

Football is how Slade came to know about kolache in the first place. When he was a rookie with the Houston Texans, he was tasked with fetching the team’s orders from The Kolache Factory several times a week. It was a long walk between the store and the practice field (he didn’t have a car in Texas yet and there was no DoorDash then), so he helped himself to the kolaches in the bags he was carrying and grew to really like them.
