At Shipley Do-Nuts, we know that preparation and support is everything to franchise success — and you can count on our QSR industry training to pave the way!

No Experience with Do-Nuts is No Problem! You Can Count on Our QSR Industry Training to Prepare You!

At Shipley Do-Nuts, we look for candidates who have previous business ownership or management experience, and we prefer those with strong backgrounds in operations, franchising or restaurant management. Having said that, we know that preparation and support are key to running a successful franchise, and our experts are committed to making sure you’re ready to take full advantage of our robust industry from the moment your doors open!


While previous quick service restaurant (QSR) experience or business ownership is preferred, we look for franchisee candidates dedicated to operational excellence and committed to customer service and product quality.

To bring an iconic QSR franchise brand to a new or evolving market, the ideal candidate should have an entrepreneurial spirit, as well as sales, marketing, restaurant, and/or retail experience.

Here, we’ll explore what makes an ideal Shipley Do-Nuts franchise owner and what some requirements in the QSR industry might look like.

  • You’re a People Person
  • You’re a Leader
  • You’re Driven
  • You’re an Operating Owner – We like to see candidates that are committed to operating the business or have a partner/operator in mind. We find the most success in stores that are locally owned and operated, so we are seeking hands-on franchisees for this opportunity.

If you’re excited by the potential for growth and want to use your experience to make life delicious, we want to hear from you!
