It is amazing to look back at photos of the first Donut King store, which opened in Sydney in 1981 and to appreciate the progression from a rudimentary franchise system to a franchise system with over 300 stores throughout Australia, the vast majority of which are owned and operated by franchisees. The sweet simplicity of producing our donuts means that franchise owners are able to focus on their customers and growing their business.

Today Donut King offers its customers both young and young at heart a range of mouth-watering donuts (cake and yeast), espresso coffee, hot and cold beverages, signature Quakeshakes, soft serve ice cream, breakfast toast and hot dogs – not to mention hot cinnamon donuts cooked to order.

As Australia’s largest specialty donut and coffee chain, Donut King serves millions of donuts to Australians every year! As a business package, Donut King provides all support systems, marketing, operations manuals and training along with ongoing field advice and coaching to assist our franchise owners. Donut King is truly an icon in the retail food market, attracting customers from all ages and walks of life and delighting them with a fun experience and delicious treats and beverages.
