The Dapper Doughnut Franchise

The Dapper Doughnut shop is designed to celebrate the unique process of creating each mini doughnut as the customer orders. The Dapper Doughnut customer values the transparency of this process, so the doughnut-making assembly line has been placed front and center in the customer experience. Each doughnut is treated as precious and presented as such. Like the brand itself, our shops have a playful and whimsical, yet sophisticated quality in its fixtures and finishes.

To buy a franchise with The Dapper Doughnut, you'll need to have at least $100000 in liquid capital and a minimum net worth of $200000.

Values & History

If you have ever been served a hot-fresh doughnut, you'll never forget it! It might be years later, but the taste and memories come rushing back and you want another one. That's how our story began for our CEO and co-founder, Mark Publicover. Mark, like most young people, had a job learning the lessons of responsibility - his, was a paper route. Mark and his fellow paperboys would throw their route and then meet at Maple Leaf Donuts in San Jose, California. It was there they experienced the unique hot fresh doughnut. Mark never forgot that taste and the freshness of the doughnuts served up at this local donut shop still in business today.

Many years later Mark got the opportunity to invest in a startup called, The Dapper Doughnut. The memories came flooding back and with the help of the original team, the first stores were opened and began serving our customers the same experience that Mark and his friends had many years ago.

Dapper continues to grow, evolve and we believe the future is bright at Dapper, but one thing will never change…the hot and fresh mini doughnuts served up with a lot of love.
