Doughnut has high profit potentials.

An easy to expand business


Snacks are generally profitable. You can make 50% profit and above from snack business. The high rate of turn over is what guarantees huge profits. To increase profit devise means of reducing production cost. This can be done by buying things like; flour, oil, sugar etc in bulk.

The more doughnut you produce the bigger the profit because of the power of overturn. One doughnut goes for #50-#250 depending on your location and the class of people you are supplying to.  Devise means of reaching potential buyers if you can supply up to 20 people a day and make #1,000 from each that will be good.


It depends on the scale you are starting with, #20,000 you can comfortably start it small. But for a doughnut factory operating in a large-scale #200,000 can start it.


Start by selling to your friends, relatives, colleagues, neighbours etc. If your product is good they will bring a lot of referrals to you and would come back asking for more.

Use online portals such as Facebook, Instagram etc to advertise. Also tell people about it by way of mouth. Position boys at bus stops, busy traffic to sell for you. Sell your product in Schools, hospitals, markets, events centers etc.

Put a show glass somewhere or a mobile spot and sell your doughnut and drinks.
