General Manager - Cops & Doughnuts - Clare, MI

Are you an experienced Bakery Manager looking for an amazing growth opportunity - Check this out!

About Us

There is a doughnut shop and bakery in Clare, Michigan that has been in constant operation since 1896. This foundation business was within weeks of closing when the members of the Clare Police Department came to the rescue. All of them. That’s right, all nine members of the local police department banded together to save this historic business.

Cops and Doughnuts has since expanded to include 4 locations, along with our warehouse and wholesaling operations. We are dedicated to inspiring and developing great people who will Delight our Guests and improve the Cops & Doughnuts portfolio for the benefit of all.

About the Job

We are looking for a General Manager who can oversee all operations and understands what it is like to work in a fast-paced, tourist centered, destination oriented location with people lined up outside the door to get their doughnuts. The General Manager must have experience making doughnuts and other baked goods from scratch and be committed to maintaining the best product made from the best ingredients!


  • Manage day-to-day operations of 4 locations and the managers of each location.
  • Model superior customer service, providing a warm and welcoming environment for every customer that walks into one of our bakeries. We’re fortunate to have locals and tourists alike visit our bakeries and want everyone to feel the Cops and Doughnuts love when they’re with us.
  • Coach, develop, and train team members, helping address areas for growth and fostering high-potential talent at every level.
  • Responsible for all aspects of employment and restaurant staffing including recruitment (interviewing and selecting), training, and conducting new hire orientation.
  • Ensures proper management of each facility and equipment through preventive maintenance, energy conservation, repairs, security measures, and adherence to safety and sanitation requirements.
  • Strategize and recommend changes in order to hit sales goals, increase foot traffic, manage costs, and improve relationships with vendors and community members.

About You

  • 5+ years bakery experience, including making doughnuts from scratch.
  • Passion for what you do. You love both the people and business sides of the food industry and are great at thinking through both challenges and opportunities in either area.
  • You’re a team player and willing to lend a hand or elevate those around you and you’re the first to jump in if extra help is needed in either the front of back-of-house.
  • You add your own individuality to an already positive and uplifting work environment. A good sense of humor doesn’t hurt either.
  • Able to manage and travel to 4 locations.
