Cops and Doughnuts now open in Lansing

LANSING, Mich. (WSYM) - Fried, sugary treats in over three dozen varieties were available for the first time on Tuesday at a new Cops and Doughnuts location in Lansing.

The popular Clare, Michigan bakery opened it's doors in the capitol city on 6427 Centurion Drive. The establishment will be open seven days a week from 6 a.m. - 6 p.m. in Delta Township.

The new bakery's co-owner Heidi Williams, along with co-owner Michelle Bryant said they've invested close to $75,000 renovating the location.

In addition to donuts, customers can expect to see T-shirts, hats, coffee mugs and socks sporting the "Cops & Doughnuts" logo for sale, with clever sayings, like "Hand Cuffs and Cream Puffs."

Customers can get their picture taken in front of a "Mug Shot" poster on another wall, or sit at a table with "Back the Blue" napkin dispensers.

Even the windows feature colorful cartoons of inmates and police officers.

The goodies will be delivered daily from the Cops & Doughnuts flagship store in Clare, where they are made in-house.

"They will be here every day by 5 a.m.," Bryant said.

Williams said people familiar with the treats in Clare won't have to travel that far to get them anymore.

"There is no quality difference," she said. "If you love what's in Clare, you're going to love what's here because it's the same stuff."

Cops & Doughnuts - Capital Precinct will also sell breads, pastries, cakes, Amish hand pies and cookies. Three varieties of coffee will be brewed on-site - Day Shift is a medium roast, Night Shift is a dark roast and then there's Off Duty, a decaffeinated blend.

"There's a little bit of something for pretty much anybody," Williams said.
