Rocket 88 Doughnuts Puts Community First
Rocket 88 Doughnuts started with the vision to create a business involving the community. Owner Patrick Burch, a former high school teacher, who is passionate about the growth of Fountain Square and downtown. He knew the area was in in need of a unique doughnut shop making quality local ingredients a top priority. Thus, the idea for Rocket 88 Doughnuts was born.
Environmental responsibility, community engagement and high quality are the three main cornerstones of Rocket 88’s mission. One of the ways they do this is by using as many organic and local ingredients as possible. Burch explains that 90% of the Rocket 88 doughnuts are organic.
Rocket 88’s farm to counter-top localness is obvious once you see their huge chalkboard-painted wall which lists their local suppliers and partners, including New Day Meadery, Smoking Goose, Mile Square Coffee and Sage’s Simple Syrups. With creativeness in the kitchen, tastebuds can be tempted by unique flavors such as cream cheese cranberry yeast donut, brown butter pumpkin, New Day sprinkled, and one of their top sellers, dark chocolate bacon.
Rocket 88 Doughnuts is fulfilling their mission by giving back to the community. When the store has leftover doughnuts they donate them to the David S. Moore Food Pantry. Burch also indicated his plans for a monthly volunteer day for his staff to provide more community integration and fulfillment.
