Chef-Driven Doughnuts

 

We’ve been at this a while 

 

For years we’ve perfected our doughnut recipes and have created one that is light, airy, and savory. We make yeast-raised doughnuts with the best ingredients available. We always offer a variety of vegan options. We believe that delicious food can be created responsibly using locally sourced ingredients whenever possible, and we treat our employees equitably and give back to the community. 
 

People often ask us why we chose the name “Pepperbox”. One of the legends of the invention of the doughnut involves an American sea trader in the 1800’s who was tired of his fried cakes always being uncooked in the middle. As a result, he punched a hole in the center of the dough with the ship’s tin pepper box, and thus was born the doughnut (or “donut”) that we know and love.


We have recently opened our first brick and mortar in the burgeoning South End area of Charlotte, our hometown, and hope to have many more stores in the future. In addition to our signature doughnuts, our first retail location offers plain glazed, chocolate glazed, and other classic doughnuts, coffees, teas, and an innovative non-alcoholic beverage program.
