Rocket 88 Doughnuts has been my baby for an entire year now. What a crazy year! It was about 2 ½ years ago that the idea for Rocket 88 started to develop, and last December, it finally became a reality in Fountain Square. I’m a very proud resident of Fountain Square for over three years now, and I always wanted my first business venture to be in my home neighborhood. I love the energy and people of Fountain Square, and my main goal was to become a productive member of the business community of Fountain Square. I would like to think that we have achieved our goal in year one.
Rocket 88 is a doughnut shop that focuses on all-natural, organic, and local ingredients. We specialize in unique and creative flavor profiles that make us stand out from more standard doughnut shops around town. We also focus on high quality coffee with a great partnership with our friends at Mile Square Coffee. They made a custom Rocket 88 blend for our shop, and we also use their great espresso blend and cold brew coffee as well.
One major evolution of Rocket 88 throughout year one is our focus on vegan offerings. Half to 2/3 of our daily menu is now vegan. We also offer vegan sandwiches that are available on the weekend. Our vegan fan base has continued to grow throughout year one, and we have developed a great relationship with a lot of our awesome vegan customers.
We also are currently hard at work on opening our second location in South Broad Ripple at 49th and College. We’re excited to bring our doughnuts and coffee to another great part of the city soon within the next month. We’re looking forward to continuing to grow and become a better business for our customers.
