Support and Training
Doughnuts are a quick sweet treat that everyone loves. With the specialty food niche growing steadily, there has been a rise in the demand for handcrafted organic sweets that satisfy. When our customers go looking for their comforting cravings, they’ll find a menu of both sweet and savory items within reach at Chesapeake Doughnut Co. Our franchise model offers future entrepreneurs a turn-key operation that values clean ingredients and delivers menu items that are on brand, natural, specially sourced, and environmentally friendly.
Our founders launched the very first Chesapeake Doughnut Co. in June of 2020. In only seven months they had generated enough profit to open a second location and soon after a third. Our management team and staff take pride in offering delicious treats using organic ingredients while providing living wages to all of our valued employees. We have created an evolved menu of doughnuts, sandwiches, and coffee that we serve with only the most attentive customer service. Some of our most popular menu items include: Bacon Egg and Cheese breakfest Sandwich, Maple Bacon, Boston Crème, and Chocolate Frosted Doughnuts, and so many more irresistible options.
We are ready to share our success with new franchisees that are committed to expanding our brand.
You’ll be able to serve the best treats of the utmost quality to everyone in your community while putting profit in your pocket with the Chesapeake Doughnut Co. team!

TASTE THE DIFFERENCE
We may not be the only food service franchise on the market but we have a point of difference that makes us a preferable option for customers. Our franchise concept is sophisticated, built on years of market research and fresh made recipes. We are engineered to last and replace the donut chains of lower quality who have abandoned whole and natural foods.
The Chesapeake Doughnut Co. business model is operationally simple and runs smoothly with a fairly low number of employees and minimal workload for the owner. With fresh doughnuts and buns made each morning, service throughout the day is straight forward and our automated cappuccino/latte/mocha/etc. machine makes consistently excellent beverages that are freshly ground, brewed and steamed, at the touch of a button. With our recipes, machines, and procedures – it’s easy to ensure every customer experiences joy!
Our operational model is able to adapt on the national scale. In today’s market coffee is a prerequisite to start the day, and we carry top-roater Blanchard delivered fresh each week. We offer a range of tantalizing and savory to sweet selections to attract customers throughout the day and week. Customers can taste and see the quality and care that goes into our food.
We at Chesapeake Doughnut Co. strongly believe in supporting our franchisees throughout their journey in business.
