About Us

Donut Republic is the brainchild of donut fanatic, Jeff Woelker. Jeff spent much of his youth watching his mom decorate cakes in their kitchen and probably enjoying too much of the end product. Growing up in the suburbs of Detroit, there was always a plethora of classical cake and yeast donuts, as well as the seasonal staple such as paczki or apple cider donuts.  Jeff moved to Chicago over a decade ago and had to try every donut he could get his hands on.

His passion first extended to starting his own food tour called The Underground Donut Tour, Chicago's first and only donut tour. It's still running today if you want to check it out. After a few years of watching from the sidelines, he decided it was time to start his own donut business, to share his love and passion for donuts with others. 

Donut Republic is all about the love of donuts. Every flavor is created with both donut novices as well as donut gurus in mind. Each flavor has a special memory or emotion associated with it.

Donut Republic was created by a guy who loves donuts, for you, the people who love donuts.
