Ok, so if you’ve been living under a rock then you haven’t heard of PVD Donuts, but I’m sure you’ve seen the instagram posts, BuzzFeed article among many other wonderful press they’ve received.
Here’s the thing you won’t find in any of the press, how hard they work. Let me start from the beginning.
I emailed the owner earlier this week about getting donuts for New Years, our neighbor hasn’t tried them yet and neither had a few other guests who were joining us for New Year’s Eve celebrations. I emailed them asking if I could in fact place an order or if it would be first come first serve. On their website it says allow for up to 72 hours for a response.
Flash forward about 40 mins I got a response, saying I could in fact place my order and do so by 10pm the next night. Awesome, I chatted with our guests and came up with a list. Sent it in and then the owners emailed saying they didn’t offer the chocolate cruller donut this month and asked if I’d like to swap it out for something else, I declined and said that was my husbands favorite and I thought we would be all set with the order as is.
Low and behold they said they would ask their bakers if they could make it for him, how awesome is that? Seriously, they went out of their way to accommodate someone who they don’t personally know?
The other thing that’s absolutely wonderful about PVD Donuts is on their website they say they cannot guarantee that there is no cross contamination for people who suffer from peanut allergies. This is great, my niece and nephew have peanut allergies and they are so transparent – it’s very refreshing to see.
Lets talk about the owners Lori and Paul, they have an amazing staff who they treat like family and they respond to emails quickly as well as do the website themselves. We try to go to small business’ as often as we can and we truly believe that small business’ will keep the local economy going and want other people to visit them as well.
Lastly, the employees are truly some of the nicest I’ve ever met and very well organized. If you order in advance you get to the cut the line (not wait outside, but they do have heaters out there for everyone to keep them warm!) and go inside and to the left and there’s someone there with a table of donuts and a square ready to give you your order. I was in and out in 5 mins. I also got to congratulate one of the staff who is recently engaged. I love the environment and their donuts.
Go check out PVD Donuts and let me know how much you love them.
