Our Story

A simple equation for happiness

Donutology equation part 1Donutology equation part 2

We’ve found that what we do is not just about delivering on our promise to provide fresh, handmade donuts everyday that taste really good — it’s about making people really happy. Have you ever noticed that it’s nearly impossible not to be happy while eating a donut? More likely than not, if your friend is having a bad day and you give them a donut, chances are they’ll smile (no matter how hard they may try to fight it). Just talking about donuts makes a person feel good! It’s true that donuts equal happiness.

Our equation for happiness is simple. Create your own donut in a way that expresses your unique personality, and boom… happiness happens, right before your eyes. At Donutology, we’re lucky enough to elevate happiness thousands of times each year.

But we don’t just create and sell happiness—we spread happiness, too. As a native of Lansing, Kansas, supporting local charities and organizations whose missions involve kids, animals and making Kansas City a better place to live, work, play (and eat donuts) is important to us.

The Donut Gene

As a donut lover myself, discovering that people have a unique donut gene was where it all shifted for me. Just like customizing coffee drinks, pizzas and burgers, I learned that people have a desire to make a donut their own — to express their personality with fun new toppings and flavors.

Local Support

At Donutology, we’re avid supporters for keeping things local. Our donuts are sourced with fresh ingredients including Kansas-grown wheat. We also seek out the best local products to serve with our donuts like The Roasterie Coffee, Shatto Milk, Polly’s Pop and Betty Rae’s Ice Cream.

Innovation

Innovation is part of our recipe, so we decided to take things a step further with ice cream sandwiches, shakes, floats and even invented the DôNado, an ice cream-filled, twisted
donut cone.
