Small business ownership is a very exciting and rewarding way to make a living, especially when you partner with Shipley to open a donut business. Small businesses are the single most significant driver of the American economy, and plenty of people dream of starting their own every year.

In fact, according to a December 2021 survey, just over 62% of aspiring owners anticipated starting their businesses within three months, while 82% saw conditions as favorable for the start of their efforts.

People are optimistic about business ownership, and if you are too, now is a great time to think about opening a Shipley Nuts franchise.

Open Your Donut Business Alone or With Expert Support from a Franchise Brand?
