Schulze and her identical twin sister, Erin Monyek, learned to bake as teens in their grandparents’ B&B in Gloucester, Massachusetts. With Monyek’s background as an attorney and Schulze’s as CFO of a mobility solutions company, the sisters dreamed of starting a business together, probably a horse or dog rescue. But when they tried locally to continue their ritual of breakfast together at a doughnut shop, they were underwhelmed. They decided it was time to raise the local donut stakes. Call these craft donuts: fresh, handcut, huge—easily the best I’ve had in the region. “Donuts make people happy,” says Monyek, who does the baking. Bring on the doughy delight.
