1. Dough-Joe’s owners are Wake grads!

Eric Disch and Anna Margaret Roth both graduated from Wake Forest; he studied Spanish, she studied communication. Disch also graduated from the Master of Arts in Management program in the School of Business. They got married after Roth graduated, and decided to start Dough-Joe’s soon afterward in October 2017.

2. The doughnuts are made to order!

The doughnuts are made with a classic vanilla cake base. The flavors come with different toppings, such as maple and chocolate with sprinkles. Disch and Roth hope to expand the menu to include yeasted and filled doughnuts in the future.

3. They post their schedule weekly on social media.

Disch and Roth both weren’t huge social media users before starting Dough-Joe’s, but now they rely on it to communicate with their customers. They post their schedule weekly, and update their followers about their location each day on Instagram and Facebook. Their go-to selling spots are Reynolda Village and the Coffee Park Airstream on Reynolda Road.

5. They’re opening a storefront in Reynolda Village!

Perhaps the most exciting news of all is that Dough-Joe’s will be opening a Reynolda Village location right across from May Way Dumplings. The storefront will cater to Wake students with a patio and indoor seating space, in addition to an expanded menu with coffee drinks and a variety of baked goods. If all goes according to plan, the storefront will be open by the end of this summer. Don’t worry- the truck will remain open!
