Distribution Channels The company and its franchisees sell products through two channels: On-premises: Sales to customers visiting company and franchise factory and satellite stores, including sales made through drive-thru windows, along with discounted sales to community organizations that in turn sell doughnuts for fundraising purposes. Wholesale: Sales of fresh doughnuts and packaged sweets primarily on a branded basis to various retail customers, including convenience stores, grocery stores/mass merchants, and other food service and institutional accounts. These customers display and resell the doughnuts and other products from self-service display cases, and in packages merchandised on display units. Products are delivered to customer locations by the company’s fleet of delivery trucks operated by a commissioned employee sales force. Distribution through wholesale sales channels is limited to stores in the United States.
