Owning a donut franchise can both be exciting and interesting. The choices can range from a small stall to a medium retail outlet to even a big restaurant or just be a commissary outlet.  It is also one fun business playing with donut’s shape, size, design and most of all its taste.  It brings a lot of creativity and innovation to come up with a mouthwatering treat for the sweet tooth.  So, if you are looking for a Pinoy taste donut that can be served in your locality, Go Nuts Donuts is the perfect sweet tidbit that you can offer at an affordable price in a much bigger size than your regular donut brand.

Go Nuts Donuts Company Background:

Go Nuts Donuts started in 2003 by siblings Michael O. Triallana and Christina T. Lagdameo.  The concept originally started when the two budding entrepreneurs were not given the franchise of a US based donut brand.  Out of motivation and eagerness, they decided to go into the business of making donuts, invested in research and after two years of perfecting the donut recipe, Go Nuts Donuts was born, and the rest was history.  The company started franchising in 2005 and currently there are 22 outlets in Metro Manila, 4 in Luzon areas and 2 in Davao.
