One of the SWEETEST businesses to make the Gahanna area its home is Donna’s Delicious Dozen. Owner Traci Lukemire opened her shop (north of the Morse Rd. and Hamilton Rd. intersection) in June, 2019. But it didn’t take long for her delectable creations to become popular with local residents! We caught up with Traci to learn more.
Tell us about Donna’s Delicious Dozen and how it came about?
The idea of Donna’s came about from vacationing with my family. We would always visit little local donut shops on vacation and I knew what a joy it brought to my family, and I wanted to bring that same joy to others, here in the Columbus area.
What is your specialty?
We specialize in made to order donuts. They are served warm with a variety of toppings & glazes.
What would people be surprised to learn about your company?
My customers are usually surprised by the fact that my name is not Donna. Donna is actually my grandmother, who just celebrated her 92nd birthday.
What differentiates you from your competitors?
There are several things that separate us from our competitors. I would say it is our ability to create unique flavor combinations that definitely sets us apart. We also customize our donuts for events such as weddings, baby showers, and birthday parties like nothing else that I have seen in our area. As we are growing, we are also expanding our brand. We just purchased our first food truck, and to my knowledge, we will be the only donut shop to take our concept mobile.
What do you like about doing business in the Gahanna area?
