We are a small family-owned and operated baking company; we opened our first brick and mortar shop in Decatur, Georgia on National Doughnut Day in 2012, with our second shop opening in the Inman Park neighborhood of Atlanta in 2017. Our goal is to revitalize the American doughnut - to help restore it to its former glory as a simple, tasty, hand-crafted treat.
The founder of Revolution Doughnuts, Maria Moore Riggs, fell in love with farm-to-table comfort food while working in the kitchen at Emandal, a California family resort known for delicious family-style meals made with ingredients sourced from its farm and two acre organic garden. This experience ignited her passion for making and sharing delicious, high-quality food and she has been baking ever since.
The word “Revolution” in our name refers to our dedication to hand-crafted food - to food made by people and not machines - to making all our doughs, glazes and fillings from scratch and using real food ingredients in our recipes: organic flour, local dairy, fresh fruit, natural flavor extracts, and 100% trans-fat free vegetable oil.
