If you have ever been served a hot-fresh doughnut, you'll never forget it! It might be years later, but the taste and memories come rushing back. That's how Dapper Doughnut began. Starting in 2015, Dapper Doughnut was launched to capture those memories and feeling of nostalgia. We create irresistible doughnuts, to order. And that is our key success factor…Always Made Fresh to Order products. We don’t have showcases of doughnuts and goods that were pre-made. With our open kitchen, we create an experience for the guest to watch their doughnuts being made, their artisan coffee/espresso being brewed, and specialty milkshakes being blended. The guest is captivated from first to final bite!



Dapper Doughnut’s leading uniqueness is Always Made Fresh to Order products. We have nearly zero waste in our stores, which provides a very high yield and return to our franchisees. You don’t make anything unless the guest orders. Waste and the cost of food are part of the top 3 factors which impact foodservice operators. We eliminate that.

Where is the future? QSR Magazine, the leading purveyor and information source for foodservice industry, put out a report in 2022 that stated that the snack category, which is comprised of coffee, doughnuts, and frozen confections, had the highest growth the past decade of 31.7% outpacing QSR 50’s 11.2%. That trend is something that is expected to continue at least into the next decade. Therefore, we are in the right category, in the right time, and the right moment.

In 2022, we launched a new delivery platform, a new App, a new website, a new digital supply ordering platform, and national deals with suppliers. These are some of the many innovations and updates we made to improve our business.

We offer both retail and mobile formats. Our retail franchise model targets high-traffic locations and active retail centers. Food trailers and trucks are the right vehicle to be on-site for weddings, birthday parties, other celebratory events, sporting events and festivals. Anywhere people gather… we can be there!



We are a full-service franchisor that provides initial and ongoing support and assistance in operations, training, marketing, HR guidance, and more. We offer our franchisees a full training experience that combines online training and in-store operational training. Since we provide a complete training program, any prior experience can be an asset, but is not required. The key is to be able to free yourself to learn a new system.

For a new store opening, our team will arrive about 1 week before store opening and will complete store setup, training of staff members, and a soft opening launch. We will have a training member continue to remain on site to support about 1 week after opening.

We use FranConnect as a support service to guide the entire sales process and it includes an entire library of updated content for our franchisees, including all operational guides and practices; marketing materials, photos, and content calendars; full employee training programs; and support and communication with other franchisees to collaborate and share ideas. We have national programs with suppliers for food and equipment. Along with these we have a national relationship with a brokerage company that assists with site selection and a financing company available for lending.

The beauty of franchising is that you can be in business for yourself, but not by yourself. This is why we’re here!
