Join the Shipley Family: Reasons to Invest in a Donut Franchise

Shipley Do-nuts Franchise Front with Now Open Sign

The donut industry is experiencing significant growth, and investors are starting to see the value of investing in a donut franchise with Shipley Do-Nuts. Donut franchise opportunities have become popular for investors who want to expand their portfolios through multi-unit ownership and for business people who want to be in business for themselves but not by themselves.

We could spend hours talking about why you should invest in a Shipley Do-Nuts franchise. We’ve decided to show you, rather than tell you, why a franchise opportunity with Shipley might be right for you. Here’s why you should join the Shipley family.

Our Brand Is a Community Favorite

We are proud to be part of a robust and growing industry. The donut franchise segment in the US continues to grow rapidly. According to IBISWorld, donut stores in America have a market size of over $7 billion, and in 2022, the industry’s market size has grown by 3.8%.

With our well-established brand awareness, you’ll never be short of customers for your donut business. Since 1936, we have been a community favorite for all our customers’ donut and kolache cravings. Our customers are spoiled for choice with the over 60 varieties of donuts we offer.

We Have Plenty of Donut Franchise Opportunities

With more than 300 stores throughout the South, we are on a mission to make life delicious for everyone in the country. Here are some of our available territories:

  • Colorado
  • Oklahoma
  • Arkansas
  • Louisiana
  • Mississippi
  • Tennessee
  • Alabama
  • Georgia
  • Florida
  • Virginia
  • North Carolina
  • South Carolina

How many locations will your home state support? Our business model is geared toward your success, with plenty of opportunities for multi-unit ownership.

Shipley Do-Nuts Franchise Multi-Unit Ownership

Multi-unit ownership involves investing in more than one franchise unit within the same geographical area. This type of franchise ownership carries many benefits for the franchisee, and the time is always now when deciding to invest in multiple units, especially with bigger brands where additional units might already be sold by the time you decide to add on.

Shipley’s multi-unit franchise opportunities are designed for entrepreneurs with experience and success investing in the quick-service restaurant industry who want to build their portfolios with another top-performing brand. With a three-store minimum commitment requirement, Shipley Do-Nuts offers a franchise opportunity with growth potential that is ideal for investors.

We Offer Expert Training and Support

Initial training and ongoing support are crucial to the success of your new franchise business. On top of the onboarding training you will receive prior to opening your Shipley Do-Nuts store, you will gain access to world-class ongoing support, both of which are included in your initial franchise fee. Our ongoing support encompasses:

    • Field Support: A team of franchise consultants to help with your business. 
    • Operations: Periodic information to assist in the operation of your franchise.
    • Franchise Services: We’re just a call or email away for any questions you might have.
    • Marketing & Advertising: Expert strategic advertising and local store marketing.
    • Culinary/Restaurant Excellence: Product, equipment, and procedure innovation and optimization.

Our Franchisees Love Our Values

At Shipley Do-Nuts, we pride ourselves on our do-values-that-do-good. Here are the values that define our brand:

    • Service

Our franchisees appreciate that we remain true to our core values, which have helped make us a customer favorite for decades.
