Our History

Maverick’s Donut Company began operations in 2016 with one small location in the heart of central Ottawa. Spending the first four years perfecting its recipes, and building a name for itself in Ottawa, the company quickly became recognized for being the one true “Maverick” of the local donut world.

When the pandemic hit in 2020, Maverick’s Donuts refined its concept and successfully opened its first suburban location in Ottawa’s west end. With so much hype leading up to its opening, Maverick’s saw its highest single-location sales ever. With sales continuing on trajectory throughout the pandemic, Maverick’s Donut Company successfully defined what it was to be a flourishing retail donut shop.

With an experienced team of operations and franchise specialists, along with experienced trainers and an excellent support staff, Maverick’s Donuts is now at the forefront of incredible company growth. We would invite you to learn more about our vision and company as we just might be the perfect fit for your business aspirations.
