Donuts Franchises

Just to be clear, there are brands that use ?doughnut? in the name and those that use ?donut?. One brand even throws a hyphen in there for good measure. But aside from which one your high school English teacher might prefer, there?s no difference. The donut has been around for decades, and even with all the competing food options, people still love them. The industry serves roughly 10 billion a year. Browse donut shop franchise opportunities, and learn more about this segment below.

Additional Information

In case you?ve ever wondered, doughnuts are fried, and not just a few at a time. That means the typical deep fryer found at your local burger place won?t cut it. Cake doughnuts may be either fried or baked. The equipment required to mass-produce doughnuts is extensive and not cheap. Along with having a relatively large footprint, most donut franchises are on the higher end of restaurants in terms of cost. Equipment costs can easily run $150,000 to $200,000, and that doesn?t count any real estate or leasehold improvement expenses.

Plenty of donut shops are in-line units rather than freestanding, but any store will benefit from a drive-through, so an endcap is preferable. Square footage requirements are typically from 1,750 to 2,250.

The Magic is in the Mix

Much as with the cupcake, some restaurant concepts have turned the humble doughnut into something fancier. One brand even features a mini doughnut that?s cooked to order! There?s plenty of variety available.

The good news is that once the infrastructure is in place, doughnuts aren?t that hard to make. Franchisors normally provide their proprietary mix to which you can literally just add water (along with yeast) to ensure a consistent outcome. Your employees aren?t really cooking. They?re just mixing up batter, so training is easier as well.

FranchiseClique can help you decide on the just the right concept to get you your share of that 10 billion doughnuts a year! Browse our donut franchises for sale, and find your next investment today!
