So sorry for the confusion. I am frustrated by the politicizing of mask wearing and the decision of some in our community to simply close shop, instead of insisting that shoppers wear masks. The Governor is trying to prevent this virus from spreading by mandating everyone wear masks when entering a business. It is a small ask, in the midst of a pandemic.

Thankfully we have the ability to roll with the situation via window service. If I didn’t have the windows, given that I live with my 84 year old father, I can assure you that I would require masks in the shop!

I am disappointed that, after making a huge stink over the closure of one block of River Street (to allow for social distancing) some businesses feel “uncomfortable” requiring patrons to wear a mask in order to shop.

We are, and will remain OPEN for business Wednesday through Sunday, happily accepting your phone or walk up orders:-). We prefer you wear a mask, but since you’re not entering the shop we cannot mandate it, but our wonderful Team of ER, TC, Hudsonville, Plymouth (IN) and Atlanta (GA) store clerks will be greeting and attending to your needs with masks!

A quick reminder that we are OPEN ON SUNDAYS!! As we continue window service through Labor Day I’ve been asked where to find our menu. This menu and pricing is valid July 1st through Labor Day! We also have copies at the shop so please feel free to ask for one when you stop by.
Happy almost 4th of July and remember we will be open on July 4th and 5th:-), get you’re orders in soon 🍩🎇

Patronicity: Growing Communities Together

Hello Elk Rapids! As we near Memorial Day Weekend I was so excited to hear the news from Governor Whitmer that we're Open For Business beginning Friday. Yes, it's a different sort of kick off to our Summer, but a kick off nonetheless:-)

Wanted to share two important announcements:

FIRST - There are only two more days to donate to the Elk Rapids DDA to help businesses pay rent and purchase equipment and supplies needed to reopen safely (deadline is May 20). Please share this link and consider contributing, https://www.patronicity.com/project/elk_rapids_small_business_recovery_program#!/

SECOND - We are officially on our Summer schedule beginning this Wednesday, May 20. Our Summer hours will be Wednesday - Friday 6 am - 2 pm and Saturday - Sunday 7 am - 1 pm. I appreciate the efforts of everyone in utilizing our pickup window. On weekends we will add 2 additional windows on the side of our building (one for pre-paid orders) to help accommodate our customers while keeping to social distancing guidelines. We practiced last Saturday and I think we'll be even better this weekend:-).

Patronicity brings together local citizens and sponsors to support great initiatives in their communities.

We are now open Thursdays! 6AM - 2PM. It's supposed to be chilly this weekend so better to call us @ (231) 264-9732 rather than wait outside. 🥶

🍪 Cookies are baked daily therefore quantities can sometimes sell out, so add them to your order to ensure your cookies are safe & sound. We also have hand-cut doughnuts! 🍩

Good morning Elk Rapids! Wanted to share two very important announcements:
FIRST - Elk Rapids DDA is running a crowdfunding campaign through Patronicity to help businesses pay rent and purchase equipment and supplies needed to reopen safely. Thankfully, you folks have been amazing in supporting THE FLOUR POT through this challenging time, but other shops have not been so fortunate as to be deemed essential and need the community's support. Please share this link and consider contributing, https://www.patronicity.com/project/elk_rapids_small_business_recovery_program#!/

SECOND - We are adding Thursday to our Days Open schedule and hope to be at our 5 day schedule around May 15 (dependent on customer traffic to shop). Again, thank you all for adapting with us, I'm truly grateful for you, our customers!

To provide financial relief to small business, adversely impacted by COVID-19, to be help reopen and provide a safe environment for employees and customers.

We are still open on Fridays and Saturdays! To practice social distancing, we will only be doing window service. You’re welcome to order at the window or over the phone. We are now making Vienna bread, with coaching from the previous Sweet Shop owner, Dirk! Lastly, limited menu items (cookies and coffee cakes) are by order only. We are still making doughnuts, iced cookies & now bread. 😊 💛 Thank you for your support during this strange time. Xo

In an effort to make call-in ordering easier here is our menu. I do not plan to make coffee cakes unless those have been pre-ordered (so if you want a coffee cake, please call us today for tomorrow:-). And, in an effort to do our part, I am reducing doughnut prices during this time!

Again, our number is 231.264.9732

To The Flour Pot community,

It has always been our purpose to put our guests, community and team first. That being said, I wanted to respond to the current COVID-19 outbreak (also known as coronavirus) and how we are addressing it.

We continually strive to go above and beyond to provide the highest level of cleanliness in our store. Serving fresh, safe food is our top priority and with that in mind we've made some changes in our operations to assist in stopping the spread of this virus:

Touch Points: We will be taking extra precautions by sanitizing all customer touch points as frequently as possible.These include but are not limited to: door handles, counters and register touch screens. Additionally we have moved doughnut holes, coffee, condiments and napkins behind the counter and will provide these to customers as requested. We also ask that customers request beverages from the cooler instead of self service.

Transactions: Our team will be sanitizing our hands before and after each customer transaction so as to not pass along any germs from one customer to the next after we've handled credit cards and cash.

Adapting: This global situation is constantly changing, and we will adapt as needed. If I feel that it is in the best interest of our community, my team may reduce hours of operations, or temporarily close.

I thank you for your business, and look forward to continuing to serve safe, fresh doughnuts and baked goods during this time.
Julie

Couldn’t resist posting this... While we were working away Monday evening, unbeknownst to us was an artist outside creating their own masterpiece. I think they did an awesome job on the smiley face (what a match to our own smileys). Hoping we don’t get rain so all can enjoy this work of art next week during Harbor Days!! Really love it 😊 😊

I was meaning to ask you a few weeks ago when I was up there about the for sale sign in the window. Are you guys selling? I hope not. It’s been a tradition for over 40 years.
Cherry cheese pocket is amazing!!!! So, is the custard pecan coffee cake.
We love this bakery! 🍩🍪🍩🍪
Will you be selling Pazcki next week?
Love this Bakery!!
Will you be open Saturday November 30th?
I’ve been a loyal customer for 30+ years and look forward to treats from the Flour Pot every summer. Best apple fritters on earth. Also love the icebox cookies and everything else they make!
How can I place an order for Friday?! So excited for you to be open!
What days/hours are you open?
Hi. Trying to think of some Christmas presents for my dad and thought of your shop. Do you do gift cards at all? Thanks!
Cheese Pocket made it to Georgia! Happy Thanksgiving!
Was at your bakery on Saturday October 27. Your donuts and Danish were so good. We bought a cherry walnut loaf of bread. That bread is some of the best quick bread we have eaten. We travel a lot and when the area will definately be back. Have a good week and rest of the year. Your northern Indiana fans
