Thinking of starting up a donut (or doughnut) shop? Or do you already have one and need to add equipment or machinery to expand or automate your production? Need some advice from someone with a fair amount of insight and resourcefulness, as well as hands-on experience, in the world of commercial bakeries?
My name is Darren Sydorko and welcome to my blog! I have about 16 years past experience as a professional baker, including donut production and training. But for the past decade or so I’ve been working as as an independent broker and sales rep for Bakery Equipment.com Inc. We offer new, used and reconditioned donut equipment throughout North America and can export worldwide. Popular brands like Belshaw, Pitco, Avalon, Anets, DCA, Dawn, Moline, and many more! Used donut fryers, used cake donut depositors and droppers, used fat filters, used cutters for yeast donuts, proofers, sheeters and rollers, glazers, icers, icing stations and tables.
Call me directly to discuss your bakery equipment needs. I look forward to hearing from you.
*Note: due to overwhelming response from so many potential donut start-ups I need to clarify that I am a full time equipment salesman, not a professional consultant for hire. I can answer questions about equipment and make recommendations towards a purchase, but I am not able to help write business plans, draw up floor plans, provide training, etc. And please understand there is no such thing as a shopping/equipment list that we can just send out to people. I have helped supply hundreds of donut shops and each one was different.
We are open for calls Monday to Friday from 8:00am to 4:00pm USA Pacific Time

Every week we get at least a couple calls from people planning to open a new donut shop in their area. If you are one of these people, here are some tips from an equipment supplier’s perspective:
