Dun-Well Doughnuts Entered in Business Competition

The New York doughnut shop’s cruelty-free confections have put it in the running for OpenSky’s Breakthrough Award.

Brooklyn-based Dun-Well Doughnuts is running against 16 other small businesses for the BreakThrough award in a competition hosted by start-up company OpenSky, the “social network of shopping.” The other entrepreneurial competitors range from food-based businesses including Brookfield, VT artisan caramel company Fat Toad Farm to innovative inventors such as Campfire in a Can from Henderson, NV. The BreakThrough winner will get business-boosting resources to help expand its consumer base. Since its inception, Dun-Well has expanded its fan base outside of the cruelty-free community and won Food Network Canada’s Donut Showdown earlier this year. You can vote for Dunwell here.
