    Want to hear real stories?

    We had been living abroad and working in hospitality for several years when we decided that we needed a change. Opening our own La Donuteria shop proved to be the right choice as a courageous first step into business ownership. 

    With a developed product line and brand, once launched, a La Donuteria could immediately compete with existing dessert shops. Regardless, we knew that we had to work smart and provide excellent service to achieve long-term success.

    I had worked for many years in the German restaurant industry. When I first tasted a La Donuteria donut, I was floored. I couldn’t stop thinking about it! When I later researched La Donuteria, and realized it was a franchise, I knew that one day I would be a La Donuteria owner in Munich.  

    With the franchise concept, I didn’t have to go through my own lengthy and expensive research and development phase. Today, our Munich customers love our branch’s unique designs and flavors!  

    Peter & Darina Cernecky   
    Franchise Partners in Munich, Germany 

    One day, it dawned on me that I no longer wanted to be an employee and needed something different. When I came across La Donuteria as a franchise business, it felt like the perfect fit. I would run my own business with the support of a knowledgeable and experienced partner with an established, well-known brand. My trust of the brand and the La Donuteria team’s professionalism throughout our exchanges made me confident that I was making the right move.
