Above we touch on the inspiration behind the Dum Dum products.  Let’s explore Dum Dum in further detail…

Paul is a highly experienced pastry chef, he travelled extensively to enhance his already enviable patisserie skills.  Paul’s idea was to create a perfect marriage of continental patisserie and an American style doughnut.

Paul’s desire to produce quality baked artisan doughnuts was increased by every failure.  Determined to succeed, Paul was tireless in his search for perfection. Paul will be the first to admit, a lot of dough and oil were wasted in his mission to create the unique Dum Dum product, that now grace his stylish Donutteries.

Paul researched thoroughly every aspect of the of manufacturing process.  He experimented with different oils for the doughnuts and whilst the doughnuts are baked, some oil is required.  Paul switched to healthier Sunflower oil rather than the cheaper alternative, Palm oil.  Of course, Dum Dum do not market their products as health foods, they are an indulgence to be enjoyed.

Paul finally had his eureka moment! He’s believes he has created “the best doughnuts in the world” and his customers seem to agree.

Dum Dum’s only use the finest quality natural ingredients to create their doughnuts.  Hence the “open till sold out policy” not a marketing gimmick, but a sound business decision to reduce waste as Paul did not want to compromise on quality, by adding preservatives.

Even today, Paul is regularly working along side his pattiserie team, experimenting with new flavours, techniques and seasonal specials.  The team strive for perfection with every Dum Dum they create, until Paul is truly convinced, the product will not hit the shelves.

The Dum Dum franchise is a vibrant, food retail franchise opportunity.  Working closely with Paul and the Dum Dum family, running your own Donutterie could be the niche area of food retail that you have been waiting for.  With no baking on site – the products are delivered fresh daily from the Dum Dum pattiserie to  your Donutterie, what’s not to like?
