Sugar Donuts is born in 2014 combines highest quality, freshest ingredients with creative menu developed by our talented pastry chefs. These outstanding attributes along with excellent customer care are what we strive everyday.

We developed the best dough recipe to provide customers a fluffy and light donut to enjoy. We make Yeast-Raised Donut from scratch with few very simple ingredients: fresh milk, eggs, butter, flour, sugar, yeast, salt.

In addition we offer a delicious variety of vegan and gluten-free options to meet customer needs.   

Since 2014 Charlotte’s first and only donut food truck which quickly gained popularity throughout the city.

Just one year later, SUGAR’s first retail location opened in Ballantyne and quickly built a loyal following for the shop’s beautiful, handcrafted donuts and pastries. We offer quality catering services as well.

The result was Charlotte’s first artisanal donut concept Sugar Donuts Handmade Gourmet!
