Our Story


The Seattle Donut Boat Company (actually, the really technical long name is Seattle Donut Boat, Limited Liability Company) was founded by two Seattle natives –Chief Donut Officer John & Chief Donut Officer Steve.  Yes they share enthusiasm for you to have an all ‘round good time with donuts, and yes, their friends and families think that co-Chief Donut Officer is a ridiculous title.
