      Donut King is Australia’s largest & most successful Donut Franchise chain. Were looking for passionate people to join our family!

      Donut King has been serving the now World Famous DK Cinnamon Donut for over 30 years, and is now much, much more than simply the World’s most delicious donuts. Since 1981, we’ve been growing steadily – we currently have over 325 stores, internationally and in every Australian state and territory - and we’re still growing.

      For most Aussies, at least once in our lives, a trip to Donut King was a reward for giving your Mum and Dad a break and not causing too much chaos during their shopping trip. The Donut King store stood out in the food court, like a giant pink beacon that kids just couldn't resist. The brightly coloured iced donuts, the squishy, creamy delights of the cream and jam donuts, experiencing the magic of the warm cinnamon donuts being created, bouncing along that mini conveyor belt and landing in a delicious carousel of cinnamon and sugar, to be eaten fresh and hot. We've all been there and millions of Aussies have grown up sharing this experience, it’s a place for the young and the young at heart.

      Since the beginning, almost 3 decades ago, we’d like to think that Donut King has grown up. Tastes change over time and our tastes have changed too. We still love the old favourites, but we’ve also introduced some changes for the better. Your local DK now stocks a wider range of snack options, including healthy smoothies and low fat ice cream and milkshakes. You’ll also find Fruit Freezes and some of the best tasting coffees around. If you’re looking for something more substantial, you can’t go past our gourmet range of hot dogs or our newest addition to the royal family, our Warm Mini Jam Balls, fresh out of our donut making robot!
