I know that a lot of you go through a lot of flour.  I use Dawn Foods in Denver. They have 20 locations arround the country. I buy KA Sir Galihad for $13.63 for 50#.  You do have to buy 40 or 50# bags.  www.dawnfoods.com  You should call them and ask for their product list. the web site will help you with locations and contact #'s

Did you have to provide them with a business license, or something along those lines?


 


I wonder if anyone in the Southern California area would be willing to go in on a group buy...

No info needed. Just a credit card and your name for the bill.

I buy both all-purpose and bread flour at Costco (Northern CA) and had good luck with them. All-purpose is about $14.50/50-lb bag, bread flour is a little more expensive.

In some cities, (like Houston) Dawn requires that you set up an account, meaning you need to have a business.  They also have a $75 minimum order.  Outlets in other cities do cash and carry, but I don't know about minimum orders.

Do they deliver to you (and charge fee for that) or can you pick up at the warehouse/distribution center/whatever?

You must pick up unless your a commercial account I believe.

MARTY,


I have used Dawn Foods in Denver as well. Drop me a line and maybe we can split some 50# specialty flours.

About a month ago, I called Dawn Foods in Atlanta, GA to inquire about a purchase as an individual. The operator told me they only sold to business.


Anyone in the Atlanta area purchasing from Dawn that does not have a business license?

Tell them you have a friend who does it in another location and see what they say. Please don't mention the city however. I'd hate to ruin a good thing.

Any bakers open to the idea of splitting a flour order?  I've made contact with a Dawn Foods sales rep in Ontario.


I'm only ordering 50lb bags of flour, probably KA Lancelot.  If you're interested in a few bags let me know via PM.  I don't have any interest in splitting bags.


Thanks

I assume that you are talking about the distribution center in Etobicoke, Ontario, Canada; Dawn Foods also has a distribution center in Ontario, California.


I spoke with a Dawn representative from the Ontario, California location and he informed me that they do not stock King Arthur flour but that he could get it as long as I was willing to purchase a full pallet of forty 50 lb. bags.


It appears that the individual Dawn distribution centers have different policies and that they do not all stock the same goods...

I would be interested. I have sent you an email (I think) through your user profile.
Thanks,
