Papa Moose's Donuts

Greg "Moose" Heban had lived in Rossford, Ohio for 60 years. Raised on the homemade culinary creations of his Czechoslovakian mother Millie, Moose has always been surrounded by delicious baked goods.

Years of dreaming about opening a small business in his hometown, a place he could bring the community together and just chat with his neighbors, was always stunted by the question "what type of business?"

His question was finally answered one day when his four grandchildren were begging for donuts and the nearest homemade shop was a 15 min drive away.

On that Saturday morning, the dream started to come together.

Papa Moose's Donuts has the goal of becoming the small town donut shop where the community can find more than convenient store donuts, a quick cup of joe, custom order fresh made donuts, chat with neighbors and always be greeted with warm friendly smile and an Aloha.

You might even find a chocolate and sprinkled covered grandkid (or four) helping behind the counter or sweeping the floors, they are never too young to learn-right?

If you can't tell from the video, I like to have fun. My family is just as silly and even putting together the video took an all hands on deck approach, they are in this for the long haul as well. My son is so committed to the donut biz, he switched out my clothes and finished my interview. Perfection is his area.  

I am in the process of putting the donut shop together and building up my kitchen. There are other expenses in the process of opening this shop, including build out, supplies, and inventory (all of which are being financed separately), but this gofundme project does cover nearly all of our hands-on donut equipment costs - a major part of the equation and it also provides an opportunity for us to share this idea from the ground up with you, our family, friends, and community.
