Out of Shipley Do-Nuts’ 330+ locations, only one of them is currently in Alabama. But it seems that’s about to change, as Shipley Do-Nuts has several “hot markets” it’s looking to open franchises in throughout the state. Here’s what you need to know.
Shipley Do-nuts’ expansion in Alabama
In 1936, Lawrence Shipley Sr. started selling donuts wholesale for five cents a dozen. Years later, he opened the very first Shipley Do-Nuts in Houston. Many years later, in 2023, Shipley Do-Nuts still makes their best-selling, classic hot glazed donuts—along with 60+ more flavors of donuts, kolaches and pastries.
Though Shipley Do-Nuts now has over 330 locations, the name probably isn’t too familiar to Alabamians, who can only get them at one location in Hoover.
However, Shipley Do-Nuts is looking to change that.
“[we] have identified the friendly state of Alabama as perfect for our brand.”Shipley Do-Nuts’ website
On their website, they list 31 cities throughout the state as “Hot Markets Now” for franchise opportunities. From Decatur to Dothan, they cover a lot of ground with this list.
