Family owned and operated, Emerson's By the Bay was established in 2016. Owning a business, especially in the area where he was raised, has been a longtime dream of co-owner Rick Meech Jr. This finally became a reality due to the hard work and dedication of his partners, Tiffany (wife), Rick Meech Sr. (father) and Sarah Jo (mother).
The name, Emerson's By the Bay, was created by combining the business' location in Anchor Bay and the family name Emerson. Rick Sr.'s late father was Emerson Meech. The name Emerson is also shared with Rick Jr. and Tiffany's eldest son, Brayden Emerson. Combining these two factors seemed to flow with the feel of the town.
The idea for a self-serve yogurt and snack shop seemed fitting for the quaint downtown scene of New Baltimore, MI. With our variety of yogurt flavors, custard, snacks and refreshments, this family team plans to attract all ages to their business and hopes to create an enjoyable gathering place within this small knit community.
Owners: Rick Meech Sr., Tiffany Meech, Sarah Jo Meech and Rick Meech Jr. at the ribbon cutting ceremony on August 6, 2016.
