Donut King has been serving the now World Famous DK Cinnamon Donut for almost 40 years, and is now much, much more than simply the World’s most delicious donuts. Since 1981, we’ve been growing steadily – we currently have over 230 stores, internationally and in every Australian state and territory - and we’re still growing.
We've grown up with you
For most Aussies, at least once in our lives, a trip to Donut King was a reward for giving your Mum and Dad a break and not causing too much chaos during their shopping trip. The Donut King store stood out in the food court, like a giant pink beacon that kids just couldn't resist. The brightly coloured iced donuts, the squishy, creamy delights of the cream and jam donuts, experiencing the magic of the warm cinnamon donuts being created, bouncing along that mini conveyor belt and landing in a delicious carousel of cinnamon and sugar, to be eaten fresh and hot. We've all been there and millions of Aussies have grown up sharing this experience, it’s a place for the young and the young at heart.
Our tastes have evolved too
Since the beginning, almost 4 decades ago, we’d like to think that Donut King has grown up. Tastes change over time and our tastes have changed too. We still love the old favourites, but we’ve also introduced some changes for the better. Your local DK is so much more than just Donuts. Those who fancy something more substantial will love our delicious range of toasties and gourmet hot dogs or if you need a sweet way to chill out, our soft serves and Mixers will do the trick. You’ll also find an extensive range of cold drinks which cater for every taste, with our iced espressos for the coffee lovers, classic milkshakes & thick shakes, ice cold frappes as well as our signature Quakeshakes. Our coffee has come a long way too as we have recently launched brand new equipment and training across the network to ensure every store serves the perfect cup, every time.
