Bub Bread Bag
What it is:
From the fertile minds of Bub and Grandma’s and Coco’s Variety Bike Shop, we bring you “Bub Bags” - a mystery bag filled with a selection of Bub and Grandma's bread and an occasional special nugget of extra all for $15.
Exact contents remain a mystery depending on what is baked on the given day, but you can reliably expect a big loaf, a baguette or chunk of foccacia and a sweet/pasty.
No bread bags at this time. Bub and Grandma's Bakery has stopped baking as they deal with a COVID outbreak that has effected 6 bakers. Check the @bubandgrandmasbread instagram for the latest news.
We were selling a $30 two bag minimum, but we are reducing to a single $15 mixed bread/pastry bag. The pastry is not vegan but the bread is.
Want multiple bags to keep distributing to friends and neighbors? Order as many as you like! We love this alternate distribution model where you are the last step in the chain.
How it works:
Each Friday and Sunday the Bub crew creates grab bags of bread. They let us know how many bags they were able to make from the day's bake and we put them in inventory on the website. There are no pre-orders.
We post the day's bread inventory at 1 PM sharp. Make your purchase online - choose local pick-up. We do not ship. We don't put the bread into inventory until it is on our shelves and ready to pick-up. No need to call and see if it is ready - it is.
Pick-up the bread the same day as purchase at Coco's Variety at 2427 Riverside Drive 90039 at our six foot deep streetside counter or call us (323-664-7400) to say you are here for your bread and tell us the name of the online purchaser. We will come out the side door wearing mask set your bread on the white table.
"What if I don't make by the listed closing times?"
We take the bread home and to eat, freeze and share with our friends and neighbors. There will be no refunds - Bub's is baking bread for this effort and it is committed to you. You won't get your money back or get bread, but that $15 goes to an amazing cause of helping two fine small businesses at the toughest of times.
"Can I just come by and pay or come at the end of the day and see if there is any left?"
Respectfully, no. Maybe some day! But this sounds simple and may prove so, but so far in this crisis everything has been pretty hard.
"Can I pre-order?"
Respectfully, no. We don't know how many bread bags will be available until we add them to inventory.
"Is it really sold out?"
Yeah, if it is after 1 PM on a bread day and the website says we are sold out, then we are sold out. I will endeavor to change the dated missive at the beginning of the post as soon as sold out.
"Can I buy more than one bag?"Yes. We encourage you to buy multiples and distribute to your friends and neighbors. Ideally, we would sell 20 bags to 20 people that leave those 20 bags on 20 friends and families door steps. This in a experiment in non-traditional distribution and you are one of the non-traditional distributors.
Why it works:
You purchase on our website eliminating the challenges of physical financial commerce during this difficult time.
When you buy a Bub Bag, you know you are going to get bread. No going to store and wondering if the shelves will be bare except canned turnips.
When you buy a Bub Bag, you don't know exactly what you are going to get in the bag and that is fun.
No lines. One person at a time. We are going give each other a safe 6 feet.
You support two essential small businesses that are remaining open to support the community and keep our employees paid. Believe me, Andy and I would rather be at home complaining about how bored we are.
Minimizes waste as bread at the end of the baking day is distributed completely.
During this crisis, Coco’s is committed to essential bicycle repairs, bicycle and parts purchases for work, commute, fun, health and sanity and we are keeping their interactions short and sweet with emphasis on essential. We are also committed to getting you amazing bread.
Details may change but we wanted you to know we are thinking of you, our employees, everyone’s safety and your bread basket.
