Jeff Buckwalter of The Holy Donut on Building a Food Business & Supporting Community Through Donuts

In this episode of The Boulos Beat, guest hosting for Greg Boulos is Samantha Marinko, Associate at the Boulos Company, as she sits down with Jeff Buckwalter, CEO and Co-Owner of The Holy Donut.

The Holy Donut is a family-owned donut and coffee company that started with a single shop in Portland, Maine, and has grown to employ over 120 people and sell over 2 million donuts a year.

Samantha and Jeff discuss his professional and educational background, how he ended up leaving his safe, well-paying corporate career in sales to take a leap of faith into the donut business, how the Holy Donut supports the community by focusing on local, natural ingredients, and the challenges associated with growing a donut business (especially during a pandemic).
