DonutNV was originally founded as Cinnamini Donuts on one simple premise: Corporate America isn’t for everyone. Founders Alex and Amanda Gingold knew that there was more to life than the routine daily grind of just going to work and coming home, day in and day out. Dozens of couch conversations later, a new brand started taking shape.
Shortly after, the first location opened in May 2014 as Cinnamini Donuts at the Philadelphia Premium Outlets. The response was incredible! On opening weekend, customers were lined up to watch the donuts being made, and to taste what they had just watched. After running out of supplies on the first day, it was clear that the concept was a runaway success.
Customer feedback over the next several months demanded that the concept be taken mobile – the requests for our donuts at birthday parties and weddings poured in. Months of design and fine tuning led to the first mobile unit being launched in July 2015. There was an immediate following – everyone loved the bright and flashy donut truck!
Demand grew stronger, and additional mobile units were added to serve a greater number of donut lovers. Market research from New York through Florida determined the brand needed a wider customer appeal than just cinnamon sugar. In 2018, Cinnamini Donuts transformed into DonutNV, offering the tastiest sugar flavors, paired with an expanded menu of fresh squeezed lemonade flavors.
One of the biggest questions that we have always heard since we first opened was “how do I own one of these?!” In late 2018, DonutNV Franchising was born. Ron Reaman joined the DonutNV Franchise family in 2019 as our first franchisee, opening DonutNV Allentown.
In 2021, DonutNV HQ was relocated to Clermont, Florida inside of our flagship DonutNV store. After rapid growth, we had a need for a massive training and warehousing facility, where we are now located in Orlando.
