From the flour mix to the fryer and more, we’ve put together the essentials of a profitable donut store. And as a Daylight operator, the profits are all yours!Daylight Donuts

A better approach. As a Daylight operator, you are a licensee, not a franchisee. As such, you do not pay a franchise percentage or even an upfront licensing fee. You simply agree to use Daylight products and processes in exchange for the right to use the Daylight Donuts brand name and trademark.

The help you need. Our management team provides the support you need to get up and running. This starts with sharing research and expertise to help you select the best location for your store, and it continues though planning, equipping, opening and operating your shop.

Daylight DonutsWithout the overhead you don’t need. From the beginning, your Daylight Donuts agreement lets you put your money directly into tangibles that will help your store’s success - equipment, inventory, signage, décor and marketing. Your investment stays in your store. And so do the profits.

Our owners say it best:

“I did research online and found Daylight Donuts. They invited me to come to Tulsa to visit the Daylight Donut Corporation and finally I did. I found that Daylight Donuts have excellent management people. They are so knowledgeable and so professional.

Daylight Donuts Coffee"We are the first American donut shop to open in mainland China. We are so proud of that. And we got a lot of support and help from the headquarters in the United States. Several management people even came to help us 'grand open' our Daylight Donut shops. With their support and help, I feel I will reach my goal to open 360 Daylight Donut shops in the next 10 years.“ Andrew Kwok, Chang Sha, Hunan Province, China; owner, mainland China’s first two donut shops

“In the first place, Daylight is top-notch quality, the Rolls Royce of donuts. That's encouraging right from the start, knowing that you have a good product to make and sell to the public. Then, they have representatives to come around and see that things are going alright. They just have good service and they've expanded their management scope to be really attentive to the stores.

"We have people continuously telling us that 'Daylight is the best in the world,' or 'I've never tasted any donuts like Daylight Donuts.' We get feedback like that all the time. We don't ask 'em. They come and tell us, 'These are the best donuts I ever tasted'."-James Anderson, Athens, Texas. Now in his sixth decade as a Daylight Donuts shop owner/operator, he learned donut-making in 1948 from Tommy Day, originator of Daylight Donuts
