Part-doughnut shop, part-furniture shop opens new location in Sarasota

It may sound like an odd combination, but apparently selling doughnuts and furniture is a viable business plan. So much so that the owners of the Bradenton store are expanding.

The owners of The Farm House, Steven and Nancy, wanted to open a store to sell their handmade furniture and though doughnuts would help get people in the door.

The couple recently franchised the company. There is now a new location in Sarasota, located at 4001 Clark Road. The original location started in Bradenton, and they also have a location in Georgia.

Their next spot will be in Birmingham, Alabama.

“We just became a franchise in the last month,” Steven told FOX 13. “That will probably happen in the next 60 to 90 days that we’ll open that store. We’re hoping to go all over the United States and bring small town back to every town.”

The owners sell freshly-baked doughnuts and beautiful, one-of-a-kind furniture. “Donuts, décor, chicken and more” is the new tag line. They have since added chicken into the mix.

“It’s just all about coming in and relaxing and having a good time looking at all the unique things we put in here,” Nancy said.
