PARK CITY, Utah. — Parkites don’t have to travel far to enjoy any of the products offered to the hometown-headquartered culinary company Kodiak Cakes. However, if they do travel far, their favorite flapjack can be found on the fly.
An efficient online ordering and store locator makes it quick and easy to pick up local favs wherever travels take Utahns. There’s no shortage of traditional and creative custom recipes that are omnipresent on social media and at social gatherings.
Kodiak Cakes is a bit of a financial phenomenon on an upward trajectory virtually unrivaled around Park City businesses. Entrenched in the community, a six-degrees-of-separation boils down to two or three degrees when school classmates, book clubbers, and chairlift chats come into the mix for the owners and operators of Kodiak Cakes.
There’s often an unexpected ‘Hey, look at that’ moment of bragging rights to the osmosis-ownership of the brand born and raised in Park City when Parkites encounter the products on the road. When walking into grocery stores and big-box stores in every corner of the country. Target, Costco, Walmart, and Safeway are just a few broad-reaching spots selling Kodiak Cakes from Maine, California, Washington, Florida, and everywhere in between.
Flapjacks, waffles, cooking cups, snacks, muffin mix, syrup, all of these items, and many more are available from Kodiak Cakes.
If growth is the business’s unofficial first name and creativity is its last, then philanthropy may be their middle name as it partners with multiple nonprofits in and around Park City.
In 2014, an appearance on Shark Tank found a young Kodiak Cakes asking for and receiving an offer for half a million dollars, from which they walked away and never looked back.
Kodiak Cakes built its custom building just before the pandemic at 3247 Santa Fe Rd in the Pinebrook neighborhood in Park City. Whether in the kitchen or the camp box, more and more Americans are experiencing this taste of this Park City success story.
