The Shipley Do-Nuts concept, like many successful foodservice operations, relies on well trained & qualified staff to support its goal of quality and consistent performance. We have worked diligently over the past 78 years to simplify its operation to perfom with efficiency. The cost of opening a Shipley Do-Nuts varies and primarily depends upon several factors. Those factors include the size of the shop, location, real estate market, cost of leasehold improvements, equipment and fixture costs.
A $35,000 franchise fee is an additional start-up cost and an adequate amount of operating capital is required. Shipley Do-Nuts has entry requirements which start at $200,000.00 liquid and $600,000.00 net worth.
Additional information relating to the investment is available in the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD).
Shipley Do-Nuts success is based on its commitment to simplicity, which enables the initial investment to be kept to a minimum. Shipley Do-Nuts Flour & Supply Company provides a proprietary donut mix that requires only water and yeast to be added at the store level. Therefore, very little scaling or measuring of ingredients is needed that could cause inconsistent product quality.
Our equipment used in the production process is recognized as some of the highest quality equipment used in the bakery industry set to the design of our shop's needs. The use of stainless steel is prevalent in our kitchen design to ensure durability and appearance. The ability to present a clean kitchen and store is paramount in the retention of customers.
