The owners, Angela and James Mitchell, said they recently got the chance to buy the business after the owners, who ran it at a store in Prescott, decided to sell. Angela had been working at Flywheel for several years at that point. The Mitchells then found the 301 West 16th street location in Hope to be available.
Asked her reaction to the many who came to take part in the ribbon-cutting at 10 a.m. today, Angela Mitchell said, "It's kind of overwhelming to me, because even though I've ran this business for all this time, I've never owned the business, and so I was like, 'Okay, I'm just learning to breathe.'"
Attendees included Mayor Don Still, City Manager J.R. Wilson and several business owners and executives of Hope.
Angela and James both play their roles in running the business, with Angela in charge of the accounting and James, deliveries. Angela Mitchell said the business employs ten people.
The new location was once a doctor's office. In the former waiting room, a table was laid out with samples of several pie flavors available with water, coffee and Sunny Delight provided as well. I sampled the apple, peach, chocolate and ham and cheese pies. Each was wonderful but I was especially impressed with the chocolate.
Flywheel Pies' hours are posted on a sign which we feature in our pictorial below. Their price list is also included. Angela Mitchell said the pies are six inches across.
Available at the ribbon cutting was a letter for organizations that wish to sell Flywheel Pies for fundraisers, so if you run a charitable group, be sure to take a look. The business can be contacted at 1-870-397-3756 or [email protected].
