The Sweet Story of Clyde’s Donuts

Since 1920, Clyde’s Donuts has been dedicated to delivering exceptional donuts directly to in-store bakeries, restaurants, and service industries. What began as a humble venture by Herman Seekamp has now flourished into a renowned family-owned and operated business, spanning four generations. Today, we are a leading supplier of donuts to the largest global retailers in mass grocery, convenience stores, and food service and we take immense pride in upholding our family’s tradition of providing our customers with the freshest and most delectable donuts available.

With unwavering commitment, we continue to craft over 10 million mouthwatering donuts each week at our state-of-the-art bakery in Addison, Illinois.  In 2022, we expanded our operations by opening a second facility in Glendale Heights, IL to support our continuing growth. In addition to the many investments our Company has made over the years in line additions and new equipment, this new facility is a testament to our strong desire to continue to enhance our production capabilities, streamline operations, and serve our customers even better.

Our passion for quality shines through every step of our production process. From sourcing the finest ingredients to using time-honored recipes passed down through generations, we ensure that each bite you take is an indulgent experience worth savoring.
