Five Daughters Bakery, a family-owned shop founded in Franklin, Tennessee, will open inside Ponce City Market’s (PCM) Central Food Hall June 1—National Doughnut Day.
The bakery will be located on the first floor of PCM near Honeysuckle Gelato and Batter Cookie Dough Counter.
Five Daughters Bakery will offer baked goods made daily and drip coffee from Tennessee’s Honest Coffee Roasters. All pastries are handmade and ingredients are sourced locally, organic, and non-GMO. The team imports French butter and dark chocolate.
Offerings will rotate regularly and visitors to PCM will find the bakery’s 100-layer doughnuts (a cross between a croissant and doughnut), infused with buttercreams and topped with glazes.
Staple flavors include vanilla cream, chocolate sea salt, maple cinnamon, King Kong (maple bacon) and purist (vanilla bean glaze).
The shop will also offer paleo doughnuts, which are gluten, dairy, and refined sugar-free, and made with almond, coconut and tapioca flour.
Stephanie and Isaac Meek, third-generation business owners and bakers, founded Five Daughters Bakery in 2015.
Isaac’s great-grandfather owned a cake shop and his grandfather owned a pizzeria.
The couple named the bakery for their five daughters, aged two to 11—Dylan, Lucy, Maggie, Evangeline, and Constance.
In addition to Franklin, Five Daughters has bakeries in Nashville, on the coast of Florida in Seaside, and a forthcoming location at Rosemary Beach, Florida.
