Europe's first-ever vegan doughnut chain, Brammibal's, opened its third location last month, taking over space formerly occupied by a Starbucks in Berlin. Brammibal's\u00a0was founded as a pop-up business in 2015 by Jessica Jeworutzski and Bram van Monfort with the mission of bringing high-quality doughnuts to Berlin. The couple had been selling its vegan doughnuts at markets throughout the year and, encouraged by the success, decided to open what would be Europe's first completely\u00a0vegan doughnut\u00a0shop in May 2016. Brammibal's\u00a0now has three locations throughout the German capital.\u00a0According to Forbes, the newest shop is less than 250 metres away from major competitor Dunkin' Donuts. But, van Monfort and Joworutski are confident in their businesses's potential for success, encouraged by the fact that two German Dunkin' Donuts\u00a0franchise owners filed for bankruptcy last year due to a lack of profit.

A post shared by Brammibal's Donuts (@brammibalsdonuts) on Oct 5, 2018 at 11:41pm PDT Brammibal's offers six standard flavours, including Boston Cream, Cinnamon Sugar, Chocolate Peanut Fudge, and others, as well as seasonal offerings. Autumn flavours include Pumpkin Spice & Cream Cheese, Rosehip Jam, Choc Pretzel, and more. The shop makes its vegan doughnuts daily at its central bakery using only "high quality" plant-based ingredients. "We don't use preservatives in our dough and make everything fresh by hand every day," Jeworutzki\u00a0explained.\u00a0"We strive for authenticity and transparency in our branding and social media and communicate what we stand for. Obviously we also care about veganism and sustainability and are very upfront about it." Jeworutzki also feels it is important for\u00a0Brammibal's to\u00a0give back to the community. The couple donates roughly \u20ac2,000 monthly from sales of its vegan charity doughnut. "I believe that acknowledging our social responsibility as a business is really important because a lot of people nowadays prefer supporting brands they can feel good about,"\u00a0she continued. According to van Monfort, before Brammibal's, there was a large gap in the European market for vegan doughnuts. UK-based doughnut chain, Crosstown Doughnuts, now operates three\u00a0vegan-only locations\u00a0but offers both traditional and plant-based at its shops. Vegan-friendly chain, Doughnut Time, regularly offers options free from animal ingredients as well. Image Credit: Brammibal's Donuts Become a CLUBKINDLY member today!
