Sourcing Pendleton Power Flour
« on: October 22, 2014, 10:04:38 PM »
I would love to get my hands on some Power Flour but I'm having trouble sourcing it. According to Pendleton the only place that sells to individuals is Restaurant Depot but they don't ship and I don't live near one. Have you managed to get your hands on any?

I wonder how difficult it would be to setup a Costco Business account. So, so close.

You can get into a Costco business center with just a regular membership card.
Things have never been more like today than they are right now.

I bought a 25lb bag at Cash and Carry, in Santa Rosa, Ca. No membership, no resale #, just pay the bill. A little over $10/bag.

Unfortunately I don't live near a Cash and Carry or a Costco Business Center.

It turns out I could setup a Costco Business account but there's a $25 surcharge to ship orders under $250.

I think I'll give Giusto's a shot instead. :P

You might reach out to Pendleton Flour Mills directly.  Their Sales team should be able to tell you who has inventory or how you can source some economically.

Have you tried Food Services of America?  We get ours through them. You will have to go through a restaurant though.  I am sure there is one in your area willing to help if they are in your area.

Not to rain on your parade...just looking out for you.
WOW!  $56 for 25 lbs of flour!  You may want to shop around unless that is for a 5-pack.  Or, includes free overnight shipping.  For reference I believe a typical price for a 25# sack of Power flour is about $10.00. 
Cheers,
Don

Where are you located at? I am getting 50 lbs for around 18.  I would think if you contacted a restaurant that can source it and offered around 25 or 30 you should be able to get a bag.

I wonder how big of a discount they get on shipping. It would've cost me roughly $43 to ship:

https://shipgooder.com/resultrate.html?PZfrom=98052&PZto=34669&weight=27&packages=1&length=12&width=12&height=16&residential=y

It arrived today. Does anyone know the significance of the date on the side of the bag? It's 09/02/14. I hope that's not an expiration date.

Where are you located at?

Hudson, Florida.

I would think if you contacted a restaurant that can source it and offered around 25 or 30 you should be able to get a bag.

I'm going to give that a shot.

Thanks folks!

Up to you, of course, but I just looked up the Costco Business Centers and there is one in Clearwater.  It looks like it is about 57 miles from Hudson.

I just got home from the local business center and the 25 pound bag of this flour was $9.19 and the 50 pound bag was $17.69.

Seems like a heck of a difference in price.

Are you sure? The only one I can find in Clearwater is...

http://www.costco.com/WarehouseLocatorDetailsView?langId=-1&storeId=10301&catalogId=10701&warehouseNumber=336&BeginAddress=34669&numOfWarehousesToReturn=null&location=34669&callingPage=WarehouseLocatorView

...and it doesn't look like a business center.

You are right, my mistake, I apologize.   I thought I was doing a lookup of the business locations but I was actually only looking up the regular ones.

What about the Restaurant Depot in Tampa?

PS.  I know this is convoluted, but if you join the Kansas City Barbecue Society ($35), then you gain entrance to Restaurant Depot.
