Mackinaw Pastie & Cookie Co. at the Bridge

The Mackinaw Pastie Shop was founded in 1964 by William E. Heikkila of St. Ignace at the present site, 516 S. Huron in Mackinaw City. He sold the business to Gordon and Margaret Allen of St. Ignace later that same year. Gordon and Margaret operated the pastie Shop for 10 years making handmade pasties and developing a loyal following. In 1974 they sold the business to retired Lansing assistant fire chief, Bill Grew and his wife Wanda. Wanda Grew’s grandmother was from Cornwall, England (which is where pasties originated), so Bill & Wanda started using her grandmother’s recipe.

The reputation of the Mackinaw Pastie Shop grew with Bill & Wanda working 15 to 18 hours a day in the summer season until they decided it was time to retire for a second time.

Dick & Jean Hunt of Cheboygan bought the business on July 1, 1983. Bill & Wanda continued working with Dick for the next five years teaching him the fine art of pastie making. Over the years other flavors of pasties were added. Pastie varieties now include the traditional beef pastie, the chicken pastie, and the vegetable & cheese pastie.

A line of gourmet cookies was also added, baked fresh every day. We use only the finest ingredients available including fine quality chocolates used for making hand dipped chocolates.

In the spring of 2000, Dick and Jean decided to make another major change and acquired a second pastie shop. This store is on the west side of Mackinaw City. It is located at the south terminus of the Mackinac Bridge at I-75 and just two blocks from Fort Michilimackinac. This new location will be open year round and will give our customers easy access to our pasties when traveling on I-75.

We continue making pasties today with the same recipe and the best ingredients available so our customers can count on getting the same great pasties year after year.

Michiganders, travelers, collectors.

When Robert was a child, his parents dragged him and his siblings to farms all around Michigan for day-long antique auctions. You might say he got rust and dust in his veins early.

Sherri’s childhood was spent in the backseat of her parents’ Thunderbird or Impala, touring the kitschy and picturesque sites of Northern Michigan. She has yet to see a “Mystery Spot” or souvenir snow globe she didn’t love.

All grown up now, the Jamesons, with their little French Bulldog, Chauncey, spend their time touring the state in their little Airstream trailer, looking for design inspiration and digging for one-of-a-kind vintage pieces.

Peninsulas is where they share their Michigan-inspired designs and products for lake and land.
