"Burn it to the ground!" is what her contractor brother said in 1992 when Colleen Froehlich purchased an old empty building on North Elm Street in Three Oaks, Michigan. For the next two years, she spent day and night restoring it, shaping it to fit her vision. By the following spring, bountiful display cases filled with homemade artisan breads, jams, and preserves glowed in the sunlight. Beautiful housewares lined the shelves. The vintage neon sign that had hung in her grandfather's grocery store was turned on and Froehlich's was open for business.
About our Canning ... Nearly a lost art, Froehlich's puts up a large variety of products in beautiful jars. This work is done in her large 26 North Elm Street kitchen, creating an aroma you'll never forget if you happen to visit while processing is taking place! Our homegrown preserves, jams, fruits and vegetables make the perfect gift for hostess or holiday.
She makes Bread ... All of Froehlich's "from-scratch" breads are made on the premises. No mixes are used at our light-filled microbakery. Get here early, because the breads, bagels and muffins go fast! Bread selections change daily. The enticing aromas of freshly baked Honey Sunflower, Cracked Corn, Cinnamon, Peasant, Herb Cheese and French breads fill the air. They freeze beautifully, too.
We do Catering ... Whether you're planning a big party or just want a box lunch to take along on your afternoon bike ride, Froehlich's can handle it. Choose from a variety of menus, or meet with Colleen and invent your own. Our staff will arrive ready to serve you. We'll even bring the china if you wish!
Stop in for Lunch ... Make Froehlich's a lunchtime destination. Our daily selection of fresh homemade sandwiches, soups and salads offers a healthful alternative for the midday meal. Of course, we also prepare those good old-fashioned favorites, too. Have your lunch to go, or sit and sip fresh coffees and teas in our petite cafe. In the summertime, Enjoy your meal or beverage at our outdoor tables.
