Donut Run is run by husband-and-wife team Shawn Petersen and Nicole Dao, two high-school sweethearts who adopted a plant-based diet together when they were in their teens. They first began selling their specialty donuts as a pop-up vegan donut shop, and through special orders in DC last year.
The couple spent a lot of time traveling around the country trying new vegan spots that have opened up, and during their travels, they noticed a lot of vegan donut shop stores were opening up and wanted to open one close to their home in DC.
Speaking about Donut Run, Nicole Dao said: “Donuts have always been one of our favorite foods, and we wanted to bring a shop to DC.” She also added in that the objective of Donut Run is to create “the most ridiculous and delicious menu possible.”
