Now’s Your Chance to Be A Part of the Donut Connection Family
From our early beginnings, Donut Connection has quickly grown to over 150 stores in the United States and we pride ourselves as the top innovator in serving fresh donuts, coffee, bagels, muffins and so much more! As a Cooperative, each and every Donut Connection is privately owned and operated. Free from the harsh rules and regulations of other Quick Service Restaurants (QSR’s) and franchisors, the entrepreneurs of Donut Connection enjoy the flexibility of managing their own businesses, while still benefiting from a powerful national brand name.
As a member of Donut Connection, you will receive Features, Advantages and Benefits (FABs) that are some of the best in the industry. The DC Co-op was originally founded by independent owners to capitalize on two major functions: 1. Buying Power and 2. Brand Name Recognition. From ingredients and bulk coffee to in-store promotions, members have the buying power of many stores. So whether visiting a store in Michigan or Maryland, customers will be greeted by cheerful graphics, delicious aromas and a consistent image of Donut Connection, building a brand America has come to love!
As a Co-op, Donut Connection has markets available throughout the United States and we are excited to determine if there are opportunities in your region. Donut Connection prides itself in our low start-up costs and we do not have a weekly royalty or residual structure like many QSR franchisors, which can often run from 5-6% of total sales. As a DC member you are an owner of the Co-op, and will have a direct impact into the expanding future of Donut Connection!
