Our Story

The Seattle Donut Boat Co (officially Seattle Donut Boat, LLC) was founded by two Seattle natives: Chief Donut Officer John & Chief Donut Officer Steve. They share an enthusiasm for you to have an all ‘round awesome time in the donut boats, and yes, their friends and families think that co-Chief Donut Officer is a ridiculous title.
