Our Story

An Indiana tradition since 1987.

BuffaLouie’s, founded by Jay Lieser, an Indiana University student and Buffalo NY native. The store was named after Jay’s grandfather, Louie Lieser. In fact, the company logo is a caricature of Grandpa Lou smoking his ever-present cigar! With the help of Jay’s parents (Ed – known as Mr. Louie) and Trudy (known as Mrs. Louie), the business took off. Using original family recipes, BuffaLouie’s has brought a distinct flavor to Bloomington and the surrounding communities.
