There is no more natural partnership than the one between pancakes and syrup. There is just something about the combination that was meant to be. This is why we are excited to feature this week’s Customer Corner: Great American Pancake Company. It’s not often that we get to feature a local company that is so close to home. Based right here in Cashton, WI, this family run company offers such delicious pancake flavors as Cider Cakes, Angel Cakes, and Brown Sugar & Oatmeal Pancakes! Yum! Be sure to check out their website and order some for yourself, and continue reading to see what they had to say. Be sure to also check them out on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, & Google+!
Great American Pancake Company
With operations based out of Cashton, Wisconsin, the Great American Pancake Company has been family owned and operated since 2003. Local residents Garrick Olerud and his mother, Jan Hesson, along with their spouses, Kassi Olerud and Mark Blackbourn, purchased the company and set up shop outside of Cashton in February 2017. A commercial kitchen was installed in Hesson’s basement keeping the production close to home.
The Olerud’s are both in the midst of their careers, while Blackbourn is retired. Hesson will be retiring from teaching later this year. The family took over the business simply because they liked the idea of having a family business where they can work together and expand together.
The company’s products are featured on their website, Facebook, and dozens of retail stores around the coulee region. Hesson and family also travel to numerous local craft shows. The Great American Pancake Company also offers opportunities for fundraising, gift boxes and corporate gifts.
Great American Company pride themselves in buying the best ingredients for our gourmet pancakes; which has made the taste and quality of its product a success in the pancake business. All the products can be made as pancakes or waffles. There are 10 varieties offered all year round, including their signature Cinnamon, Angel Cakes, Buttermilk and Brown Sugar & Oatmeal. The Cinnamon pancakes include cinnamon chips that burst as the pancakes are cooked. Delicious! Cider Cakes, a seasonal favorite offers hints of apples and fall.
Each bag is enough to make two batches of nine to ten pancakes. Customers just add the egg, oil or butter, and water. It’s so good, it’s guaranteed!
