The original idea and concept to create dot donuts is a collective result of the 30 years experience of Stan & Nyla Wilson in the bakery industry.
With the advancement in food science of non-trans fat products and refined production techniques, the integrity of the donut has been restored, making it a more appealing option for the consumer.
Stan & Nyla opened and operated East Vancouver's first European-style bakery cafe in Fisher's Landing, September of 2001. As they watched their children grow, they recognized a need for a contemporary quick service donut retailer in the community.
Upon the sale of Villaggio Breads & Pastries in January 2008, Stan & Nyla were able to turn their attention to a new venture. dot donuts, a fresh, new concept in donuts opened in September 2008.
