FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Are your doughnuts actually 100% vegan?
Yes, they are! Everything in our store is vegan from the drinks to the doughnuts!

What does vegan mean?
Vegan means we do not use any animal or animal byproducts in our products - that means no dairy, no eggs, no honey, no lard, or anything of the sort. We use strictly plant-based ingredients.

Are your doughnuts gluten free?
No, our doughnuts are not gluten free.

Will you ever have gluten free doughnuts?
Due to the amount of flour we use in our facility, gluten free doughnuts would just not be possible. It would not be safe for those with a gluten allergy/intolerance. 

A gluten free doughnut would also be dramatically different from our current doughnuts as gluten is the main component.

If I bring you a recipe for x, will you make it?
No, we cannot. The products we currently have available are the only products we will make to ensure quality and consistency.

Do you take orders or holds?
Due to the volume of doughnuts our little shop is producing for walk-ins, we are unable to take orders or place holds on products.

Do you deliver?
We currently do not have delivery service.

What payment options do you accept?
We accept cash, debit, Visa, and Mastercard.

Is Beechwood Doughnuts a franchise?
We are the one and only! Beechwood Doughnuts is nothing more than a locally owned and operated doughnut shop.

We have no plans for franchising our store.

Do you have gift cards available?
We have gift cards available for purchase in store!

How long of a shelf life do your doughnuts have?
Our doughnuts are made fresh in house daily and are best eaten the day of.

What is the best way to preserve freshness?
The best way to preserve doughnuts for later the same day is to put them in an air-tight tupperware container at room temperature.

The best way to preserve doughnuts for more than a day is to put them in an air-tight tupperware container and place in the freezer as soon as possible to preserve freshness. Pull out of the freezer at least an hour before serving to thaw at room temperature!

Do not leave doughnuts in the original packaging for extended periods of time (if not eating the same day) and do not put doughnuts in the fridge as both of these stale doughnuts quicker!

When will doughnut flavour x be returning?
Doughnuts come and go at our discretion with the seasons. Good things come to those who wait!!

How much does it cost to purchase a dozen doughnuts?
All of our doughnuts are individually priced, so it all depends on which doughnuts you choose. Purchases of 6 or more doughnuts are tax free!

Can I marry doughnut flavour x?
I don't know if that's legal..

Where can I park?
There is street parking available as well as a parking lot and parking garage on Garden Park a short walk away from our store!

We are also in walking distance from the bus terminal and a couple bus stops downtown.

Do you take donation requests?
We do take donation requests via e-mail. Due to the large volume of donation requests we receive, we have chosen to reserve gift certificate donations for schools and local charities. Donation requests will be granted at our discretion. If we can grant your request, you will be contacted.

What happens to leftover doughnuts at the end of the day?
Leftover doughnuts are donated to various shelters and programs in the downtown core.
