…and a New Chapter of Flour & Co Begins

30 Jan

It’s with some tears and a huge dose of nostalgia that I share with you our closure as of Tuesday, January 31, 2017. We’ve loved being a part of our Lower Nob Hill neighborhood and your daily lives over the past (almost) four years. You’ve made us soar and the years fly, by giving us your business, friendship, and support. Thank you so very much for being a part of this amazing journey.

flashback to pre-opening – oh how true this is…

On the other side of tears is some relief, excitement, and opportunity. With two little boys at home (8mos and 2yrs), my family calls. I’m so looking forward to spending more time with them and getting to know a work-life balance. This lovely city that we live in has been wonderful to us and we’ve seen so many successes and joys over the years, but it has also kicked the *flour* out of us a time or two. I’m ready for a little rest and variety beyond baked goods.

However, I’ve got to have some Flour & Co in my life. When one door closes another opens…this time in the form of an online Flour & Co shop. I’ll be doing it on the side (must get job), but I can’t wait to continue spreading the love. Our online shop will feature our Nutty Granola to start. If you haven’t had it, it’s a breakout star at the bakery, one that has depth, lots of nuts, and hugs the line of salty over sweet. Who knows…maybe you’ll see it in local stores too. We’ll see just how many doors open.

I also look forward to getting back into recipe testing, eating other people’s baked goods, and all of the baking-related things that got me here in the first place. I plan to blog about it once I take a little break, so follow our blog for the latest.

I, and my wonderful team, send great big hugs and thanks to all of you. We hope to continue the friendships that have been forged by Flour & Co even after this chapter ends.

Best wishes,

Emily Day

    I’m sorry to hear that the shop is closing, Emily! I’ve enjoyed popping in, and I dream about your English muffins when I run out. Good luck in your future endeavors!

    Sorry to hear you are closing! I remember my visit in October 2013 when I told you it took a lot of guts to open a new business. I admire what you accomplished over the run of your shop(s) and wish you success with your future endeavors and your family.

    I will miss your frozen-pop in the oven biscuits of heaven which I would buy by the dozen. Thank you for four wonderful years and at least four waistline inches. Your granola will live on!

      Thank you, David. Long live granola!
