Background

At a The Dapper Doughnut shop it's all about the doughnuts. They're always made fresh and to order ‐ right in front of you. All you have to do is taste one of our hot mini doughnuts and you'll be hooked. There is a huge difference between our hot mini doughnuts and traditional doughnuts that are made in the morning and kept on a shelf all day. In fact, when you stop by one of our shops just ask for a FREE SAMPLE and we'll gladly make one for you ‐ whatever flavor you want on our menu.

We offer 3 profit centers: retail location, food truck and catering. The Dapper Doughnut business model is simple - doughnuts and coffee. We make doughnuts for $.30 and sell them from $.30 - $1.00. Combined with coffee, food costs are under 15% - virtually unheard of in the food and beverage industry. Consequently, the ROI is fast.

A food truck can be purchased for as little as $22k down (on a $110k food truck) and can be fully depreciated the first year of business (further contributing the fast ROI).
