Tadoughs Inc.
A Franchise Offering

Tadoughs Offers Opportunity by the Dozen
in a High-Demand Industry.

The Power of the Potato Meets the Deliciousness of Donuts.

Tadoughs began as Spudnut Donuts, a Central Illinois staple since the early sixties. A secret recipe with a not-so-secret ingredient, potatoes, gives the donuts their distinct melt in your mouth taste.

With a cult-like following, these specialty donuts often sold out within a few hours of opening. Following increased production, fun new flavors, and a brand facelift, Spudnuts became Tadoughs.

After conquering their local market, Tadoughs is ready to take deliciousness to new neighborhoods with franchise opportunities.

A Fresh Twist on a Food Industry Favorite Creates a Unique Investment Opportunity

As of 2023, the donut store market size measured $8.9 billion in revenue. By carving out an innovative niche in this popular industry, Tadoughs offers a distinctive franchise opportunity:

Successful Operating Location

The successful Tadoughs operating location keeps customers coming back. Through unique offerings, quality ingredients and uncompromising customer service, we’ve built a sound business model that’s replicable in any market.

Strong ROI

With reasonable overhead and start-up costs in a popular and growing industry, Tadoughs offers a strong potential ROI for a motivated owner/operator.
