“Our Mission is to be the premiere vegan doughnut shop on planet Earth and reverently carry on the tradition of doughnut making in a manner that is both innovative and ethical.”
Dun-Well Doughnuts started as a food craving when Christopher Hollowell (the "Well" in Dun-Well) called up his buddy Dan Dunbar (The "Dun" in Dun-Well) after having watched a Simpson's anniversary episode that featured Homer's favorite round confections rather prominently. Having been unable to find a vegan doughnut in NYC that satisfied his craving Christopher and Dan agreed to make their quest to create an amazing doughnut and open NYC's first all-vegan doughnut shop.
But Christopher and Dan's journey began long before ruminations of doughnuts. They met while in College in Ithaca New York, where they developed a passion for vegan cooking, and where ultimately the seed to create a compassionate business was planted. The two have traveled across the country by bicycle twice and toured around the world to raise money for affordable housing. Their bond has been formed both through friendship and survival.
