Southern Maid has a great history of baking and selling delicious donuts thanks
to the secret recipe of their donut flour. Southern Maid Donuts still produce the same great, fresh taste that they had the first time they were produced in 1937 back in hometown Louisiana. You can feel the history of those times.

With humble pride we welcome you to our New Zealand stores!

About Southern Maid Donuts Franchises

Southern Maid Donuts NZ is currently seeking qualified applicants to start new Southern Maid Donuts franchises throughout the Auckland Region.

There are currently 3 locations in Auckland. Southern Maid Donuts NZ uses the same flour and recipe used by the original Southern Maid Flour Company in Texas used since 1937. We market our brand as high-quality gourmet donuts, hand-crafted FRESH daily. We are confident that Southern Maid Donuts is a name you'll be proud to hang on your door!

Becoming a successful franchisee with Southern Maid is not as daunting as it might seem. Of course, there are several steps from start to finally setting up and opening a Southern Maid shop. However, we as the franchisor will be with you step by step to guide and support you. Essentially, we are looking for highly motivated entrepreneurs with a sense of commitment to building a retail brand in their territory. Passion for Southern Maid's donuts is a must! Which we trust most people will love our donuts once they try them.

North Auckland - Albany / Takapuna

West Auckland - Henderson / New Lynn / Westgate

South Auckland - Manukau City / Sylvia Park (UNDERTAKING APPLICATIONS NOW)

Kiosk fit out in a busy mall will be the ideal concept that will generate the maximum sales from our experience.
