This week we're joined by Lori Kettelle - co-owner and head baker at PVDonuts - for an inside look at how Rhode Island’s donut mecca began, operates, and continues to grow. PVDonuts is an institution, and Lori is at the heart of what makes it so special.
Topics include handling explosive growth, building a loyal following, a day in the life of a donut shop owner, the organized chaos of the PVDonuts kitchen, accidental marketing wins, and crafting the perfect donut photo.
