Intro

Donut Sam’s is located in the heart of Menomonie, Wisconsin, directly in the foot traffic of numerous University of Wisconsin-Stout students. We are offering over 20 different kinds of donut combinations, including numerous gluten free donuts. Donut combinations have been created by Sam, our Donut Inspiration. Get ready to devour a Big Pappi which contains maple icing, bacon pieces and drizzled with chocolate and a pinch of added salt. Who could resist the gluten free Pudge, gluten free vanilla donut with vanilla icing and fruity pebbles cereal? And who could forget the coffee and tea? Coffee is provided by a roaster who employs individuals with special needs to not just roast the coffee, but package and market – “Jumpy Monkey Roaster“. Donut Sam’s will offer donuts five days a week until 11A.

Tanya and Michael Husby have been engaged community members since their arrival to Menomonie in 1999. They have participated on numerous boards. Both Tanya and Michael are known for their passion for the community and the importance of acceptance. Michael is the Donut Guru of Donut Sam’s, while Tanya is responsible for the business dynamics of the shop.

Donut Sam’s inspires to make a difference one donut at a time. We have a desire to be a resource to ‘UpSkill’ individuals with special needs and assist in locating employment with other area merchants. It is the desire to collaborate with other community area resources, such as the school district and non-profits with a similar mission.
