Shipley Do-Nuts

It was 1936, the end of the Great Depression, when Lawrence Shipley, Sr. created a gourmet recipe for Do-Nuts. So delicious were the Do-Nuts that they have withstood the test of time. Cut by hand and served hot throughout the day, the Do-Nuts were 5 cents a dozen and were only sold wholesale. The product was so successful that it started to sell on the retail market in the mid 1940s. With Lawrence Sr. away on donut routes, his wife Lillie would stay behind and make the culinary delights with Lawrence Jr. at her knee.

Lawrence Jr. worked in the business all of his life, continuing his fathers vision and making Shipley Do-Nuts the successful business it is today. He expanded the company to more than 190 stores around the nation in Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Texas, 86 of which are in the Houston area.

President of the company, Lawrence W. Shipley, III, continues the tradition with strong growth and high expectations for the future. Lawrence III carries on the tradition of great Do-Nuts and kolaches and strives to find better ways of making your mornings start off right. He continues to expand the company, careful however to grow slowly, while never compromising the quality of the product and excellent customer service.

The Do-Nuts continue to delight customers of all ages. The 63 varieties remain as consistent as the freshness of the products, and although the plain glazed is by far the best seller, everyone seems to have their favorites.

Shipley Do-Nuts continues the pride and tradition on delivering the finest Do-Nuts and kolaches in the business. Shipley Do-Nuts is a gourmet product made fresh daily. The company offers excellent customer service, clean stores and friendly employees who love our Do-Nuts as much as our customers do.
