Cops & Doughnuts in Clare, Michigan

From the March 10-16 American Profile Magazine "Cop & Doughnuts" by Elizabeth Johnson.

In 2009, nine members of the city's (pop, 3,118) teamed up with $1,500 each and bought the 1896 Clare City Bakery before it closed, and playing on the stereotype of cops eating doughnuts came up with the name.

News of its opening made the national news.  Some of the items offered have police-themed names: Night Stick, Taser, Squealer, Morning Shift, Night Shift and Felony Fritter.

Several main street stores were vacant and they decided to do what they could to save the downtown.  They have since expanded into other storefronts with a Cop Shop with police-related items  Last summer, they opened a diner.

Way to Go.  --RoadDog
