About us.

The Donut Dispensary started trading from a cute little food trailer back in the summer of 2018. In 2019 we got our big break with the opening of the Riverside Market in central Christchurch. Since then we have continued to grow and now have three Christchurch locations with the Donut HQ being our fourth.

 We make all our donuts by hand and use a traditional recipe that Kiwis just love, not too sweet and always fresh. We make our fillings and toppings with really good quality ingredients which we really believe makes a big difference and sets us apart from your typical donut.

Our Vision.

Without wanting to sound all sappy, our vision can be described by our one word mantra. Enjoy.

We Enjoy offering our products to you every day

We Enjoy every interaction we have with our customers.

Our customers always smile at us, we smile back. We both Enjoy that!

Our customers Enjoy eating our donuts

Our customers Enjoy sharing with friends and family.

Our vision is to create a space where our customers can meet and enjoy our bright and colourful café while enjoying the freshest donuts available plus awesome coffee, bagels and other enjoyable food & drink.

If our campaign is successful we will be able to bring our plan for a Donut Party Room alive much sooner where we can host groups of up to 12 kids for donut themed parties.

Will it work?

We are already running three retail donut stores and a stand alone kitchen. We have already funded the full fit-out of the kitchen and have secured a long term lease on the premises. As with our existing stores, we will undertake the majority of our fit out ourselves to greatly reduce set-up costs and enable us to offer a genuine hand made experience!

Like nearly every business in New Zealand we have faced some incredibly challenging obstacles since the start of 2020 but the sheer determination to stay afloat has sharpened our focus to grow our brand and footprint. But it’s only made possible by the loyalty of our customers, the commitment from our team and regular oversight from respected professionals.

The location itself is bloody Awesome. On the corner of Blenheim & Watts Rd the building stands out from every angle and now that we’ve painted it bright pink, it can be seen from space. With 65,000+ traffic movements every week day it will service passing vehicles with easy and safe off street parking, plus large industrial and residential areas surrounding it. We have teamed up with Underground coffee to keep that local, fresh and enjoyed theme going with all our offerings. We have already experimented with my two other favorite State-side snacks, the Bagel and the Hot-Dog which will be on the new café menu too.

What will the money be used for?

By doing a lot of the work ourselves we can really make money go a fair bit further so we have a long list of items that we would use the money to pay for but they are things like furniture, joinery, lighting, building materials, paint, signwriting etc. We have already funded the kitchen to completion so the sooner we can get the cafe finished and open, the better.

Why should I pledge?

I guess there are several reasons but ultimately those of you who pledge will do so to bring some type of enjoyment to yourself, a friend or even someone in another part of the country. Donuts make people smile, and people like to make other people smile.

 If our campaign is successful you will receive your reward as a Pledge Certificate which can be redeemed and enjoyed by any recipient you choose.

Our rewards are obviously going to be donut based but for people who like donuts, that seems to be the preferred option. Rewards will be able to be redeemed at any Donut Dispensary location and will be available to use (at existing retail stores) within two weeks of the successful conclusion of this campaign, no long waiting times.

We are an existing company with a great product that lots of people know about so the risk of failure is very low.

We will be offering some products exclusively as rewards that we do not offer in store, such as GF donuts.

Some rewards will be able to be sent to anywhere in mainland NZ as gifts.
