Donut Entrepreneur’s Healthier Product Line Makes A Big Splash In Portland, Maine

November 30, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
Donuts made with natural colors and flavors, local ingredients and no preservatives are a big hit in Portland, Maine, thanks to a donut shop owner who is passionate about creating healthier versions of the traditional breakfast treat. Her founding principle? Only use ingredients that she would be happy to feed her eight-year-old daughter. Starting by herself from her kitchen, she now has six employees and serves 1,000 donuts a day. Her menu includes fried potato donuts drizzled with glaze, and flavors ranging from sweet potato ginger to roasted pistachio. "I think that she is leading a trend on the rebirth or resurgence of the donut," says a devoted customer.
