Humble beginnings

Our story began in late 2010 when our founder, Leigh Kellis, started making donuts from scratch in her kitchen on Portland’s Munjoy Hill. With an affinity for flavorful, wholesome food made with quality ingredients, Leigh felt that Portland lacked a really good donut—so she set out to make one.

After months of experimenting and taste testing with friends and family, she finally landed on a northern Maine recipe that, with some of her own tweaks, met her standards. Everyone who tried them knew immediately they’d be a hit. Her recipe included a rather unique ingredient at the time for the donut world: riced potatoes, which added a flavor, texture, and consistency unlike any donut that was on the market.
