Vendor Profile: 20 Shekels

by Madai Gutierrez April 01, 2016

Business Name: 20 Shekels Bread
Business Category: Food
Founding Year: ~2007

What makes your company unique? We are the only organic sprouted flour bakery around! You can come in and chat with anyone at the bakery about what "sprouted" means, and how it is different from other flours. Variety is the spice of life though, so we also play around with many many, other flours! Where else can you can get a healthy Ezekiel bread, an amazing prosciutto ricotta and a giant loaf of delicious chocolate bread?!

What do you love most about your company? The passion that everyone who works here has for our products and our vision. Any one of us will talk to you for hours on end about the bread industry and flour variances.  It's also nice that we like to have fun with our customers. We are known for our crazy (but fun!) monthly emails and discounts. Fold our email into an origami puppy dog? $10 off. Write a bad poem with 20 Shekels Bread incorporated into it somewhere? $10 off. 

Tell us a little about your process: We currently have a rotating baking schedule that starts at 10 p.m. the night before we open. We get all the doughs mixed, shaped, and baked by 4a.m., at which point our next baker comes in and makes all the Littles and Swirls for the day, these are done by 6a.m., and that's when the doors open! During the day we may have to make an extra batch of cookies or muffins, too! We then concentrate on figuring out what produce is fresh for tomorrow's menu and start stocking up for all farmer's markets and events in the next week.
