• About Us

    Donuts With A Difference began in 1984. After 15 years of working for other companies (including Dunkin Donuts) husband and wife team Steve & Marilyn decided to do it their way. Initially they were focused on wholesale donut production but over time they found themselves passionate about providing a quality product with great service. They found it much more fulfilling to strive for quality instead of quantity and they still do. That’s just the Donuts With A Difference way.


    "I tried Donuts With a Difference yesterday their donuts are the best. Oh my god I can't believe how good they are. There shop will a regular stop of mine. Coffee was good also not burnt or too strong just right. Can't wait to go back"

    - Sue Lambert, Customer

    "Donuts with a Difference is a hidden jewel north of Boston. Its a small shop but the donuts are truly the Best. I've tried them all; Dunkin, Kane's, Krispy Kreme, etc. but this shop in Medford has them all beat on all accounts....texture (not 'clumpy' or heavy with the dough) taste and variety. Worth the trip."

    - Dave McCarthy Customer

    • ----------

    • No Peanuts or Tree nuts are allowed in our store!

      Because we have been asked so many times about nut allergies we have decided that nothing containing nuts will be allowed in the store. Occasionally a product we use has stated on the label that it "may have been produced on a machine that also produced a product containing nuts" but that was only the Butterscotch Crunch and we haven't seen that recently.
