RAPID CITY, SD (KOTA) – Facebook is a way to connect with family and friends, find out what’s going on in your community, and even buy and sell stuff.
One family posted their hobbies on social media and turned it into a business almost overnight.
All it took was to create a Facebook page and some homemade bread to transform the Mitchell family kitchen into a bakery called The SOUR.
“The community was amazing,” said Makenzie Mitchell, SOUR’s social media guru. “We kind of like ‘ah, we don’t even know. There are other places where you can buy bread, you can go to the grocery store or whatever, but people are really sensitive to this handmade bread that he can produce. “
Each loaf is made to order and comes straight to your table from Mitchell’s bakery, and in the past three weeks, the Mitchell’s have received an overwhelming response from the social media community.
“It was very hectic,” said Peter Mitchel, the baker behind SOUR. “We made a Facebook page and posted several places on different Facebook groups and it spread faster than I expected. I was really expecting to make four or five breads a week and now I make six to eight breads a day. “
SOUR focuses on fresh, homemade loaves.
“Normally, we make our general menu, an original sourdough, followed by a garlic parmesan and a jalapeno cheddar,” Makenzie said. “But both the garlic parmesan and the jalapeno cheddar will have a limited time.”
For Valentine’s Day, the Mitchell’s made Black bread with chocolate and cherry.
They plan to add a few more custom options in the future.
“We haven’t been around long enough to start thinking about these kinds of things, but we are planning different holidays,” Makenzie said. “We definitely want to make a focaccia, what else is there, we have tons of ideas we are planning to make cinnamon raisins soon.”
