Common Crumb Artisan Bakery is rebranding.
The bake shop, located in the back of the Saranac Commons building in downtown Spokane, is slated to reopen this month with a new name and a new focus.
The shop will continue to bake bread but will no longer be selling items wholesale to other retailers around the city. Instead, the focus will be supplying baked goods for Jeremy and Kate Hansen’s other eateries: Santé Restaurant & Charcuterie, Inland Pacific Kitchen, Hogwash Whiskey Den, and Biscuit Wizard.
Loaves will still be available to buy at the walk-up counter. But the cold cases will largely be filled with beverages, cheeses, preserves and some dry-aged charcuterie from Santé.
The plan is to rebuild the bakery’s dessert program. The bake shop is expected to eventually re-introduce pastries and chocolates as well as some grab-and-go sandwiches.
Meantime, it’s not offering holiday cakes and pies this year.
The shop will be known as 509 Cooks, which is also the name of Jeremy Hansen’s new nonprofit. He bills it as an organization that acts as “a culinary first responder and feeder of the hungry while cultivating an apprenticeship program for young and aspiring cooks.”
Hansen said he expects the bakery to reopen next week or the week after. Mid-month is more likely, he said.
