DonutNV is an interactive, mobile franchise opportunity that is fun to operate and profitable! We serve hot mini donuts, fresh squeezed lemonade and other juices, plus hot and iced coffee, including our signature NVous iced coffee. DonutNV is superior to our competitors in that we offer mobile franchises exclusively via our custom donut trailers. Our turn-key, one of a kind trailers are built from the ground-up and include our exclusive donut machines and LED viewing window. Guests are able to watch not only our donuts being made fresh, but also our citrus being squeezed and the juices and beverages bubbling via our counter-top merchandising. Our proprietary donuts are made to order and have high margins with low waste. This is a sweet franchise opportunity: set your schedule by booking events, flat weekly royalties (no penalty for success!) and minimal labor overhead (on 2-3 people per truck).
