Donuts have long been one the country’s favorite desserts! Through recessions, inflation, good times and bad, donuts have always held their own. The simple reason? American’s have had a long love affair with donuts! If there is one thing we’ve learned in our company’s 60+ year history it’s that donuts are here to stay!

Consider the Facts

  • Over 10 billion donuts are consumed every year in the United States, which represents more than $2 billion worth of fried dough!
  • In the baked-goods industry, donuts are second only to bread in terms of total sales.

The donut industry as a (w)hole experienced a near double-digit increase in sales over the past year. Retail donut stores alone experienced a nearly 9% increase in total revenue! Combined with the following, it is easy to see why the timing is perfect to consider joining the retail donut store industry.

Our History

The Aunt Mary Ann Donuts® story begins way back in 1947, a little more than one year following the end of World War II and 16 years before Canton’s Pro Football Hall of Fame was even a gleam in the NFL’s eyes!! That year, Peter and Mary Edna Welden opened the first Aunt Mary Ann Donuts® store in Canton, Ohio

Through the years, the Welden’s proved the old adage that hard work (along with great products and a commitment to providing unprecedented customer service) is rewarded. What started as one small store on McKinley Avenue has grown to include five Aunt Mary Ann Donuts® retail stores, a 7,000 sq. ft. Corporate Office and Production Facility, and over 200 wholesale accounts located throughout northeast and central Ohio.

If you want to be apart of the Aunt Mary Ann Donuts® Family, please take a look at some of the forms below. We have put them in PDF for mat for you to review, fill out and return. If you have any questions or concerns, contact us at: Pat Welden:
