Finally, Beloved Spectacular Spudz to Open New Location in Flint
We first reported on this story in January 2023. Until recently, Flint Farmer's Market was the home to fan-fav Spectacular Spudz which has been in the process of opening its own standalone location in Downtown Flint. Don't worry, the market has plenty of new shops filling space like this new family-run shop, 'I Love Pig.'
You can see why fans are anxious for the re-opening.
Spectacular Spudz growing in Downtown Flint, Michigan
- Spectacular Spudz owner, Keysa Smith, opened Spectacular Spudz at the Flint Farmer's Market in 2016. She told FlintBeat.com (in 2021) her vision for growing into a new space started in 2019, but that was delayed by the passing of her father and mother during the pandemic. The latter helped with many aspects of the business. The next chapter was supposed to have started by now.
Why wasn't Spectacular Spudz able to open sooner?
There're a couple reasons, according to the owner.
- Issues with the build-out
- Awaiting final inspections, pending the build-out
When & Where is Spectacular Spudz in Flint Farmer's Market moving?
The new location is in the Elga Credit Union Building
- 131 W Second Street across the street from Mott Culinary School between Buckham Gallery and Reclaimed.
According to a recent Facebook update they'll finally be able to open for takeout business on May 23rd with in-person dining to follow in June. Plus, they'll have online ordering and delivery with Door Dash. Beware of the construction on the bricks downtown, too.
Comfort food at its best
Imagine any topping you'd put on a baked potato... I bet Spectacular Spudz has thought of it. You won't leave hungry.
In the new location they'll have more hours to operate, too. Remember, the Farmer's Market operates on limited hours in winter. Congratulations on finally opening in your new spot. Can't wait to see it in person.
