Flourpot bakery goes kosher

Flourpot bakery goes kosher

CHANUKAH EDITION
SECTION D PAGE 8

FLOURPOT, a cupcake and cookie bakery in Greenwood Village, is now under the kosher supervision of the Scroll K.

Flourpot opened two years ago, but closed down for several days last month to convert the bakery to conform to kashrut standards.

“We decided to go kosher because of the high demand for kosher fresh baked goods,” explains Nancy Rollnick-Jacobson, who owns the bakery with Sydney Davidson.

“We couldn’t have birthday celebrations at the shop for people who keep kosher, and we wanted to support our Jewish community.”
