What is C O C O?
COCO Donuts is about small batches of handmade 24 hours raised brioche donuts for an ultimate experience of the artisanal donut. We wanted to take donuts to another level and revisit the classic donut dough mostly known through big American donuts chain by using the classic brioche recipe as the base of our recipe.
At COCO Donuts, we care about the ingredients and believe in a sustainable and integrated cuisine. We select local and/or organic ingredients to respect the environment and support the local economy. Everything is house made with love.
Everything started in 2015 while in Australia. Chloé was studying her Masters in Integrated Marketing Communication at UTS, she was loving the life down under for almost 4 years. While Candice was traveling and working to learn more about permaculture and organic agriculture.
When we got back to Belgium, we wanted to start a business that will revolutionize the food scene in Brussels. Gourmets donuts started being a thing in the U.S; especially in big cities where people would want to make donuts in another way, less industrialized but handcrafted with good ingredients.
Because we did grow and got the opportunity to get a second space much bigger to produce everything in house directly. We now have two shops open EVERY DAY: one in Sablon (36 rue Sainte-anne, 1000 Brussels) and one in Janson (168 chaussée de Charleroi, 1060 Brussels)
Who is C O C O?
C O C O Donuts is two girls, Candice Tielemans & Chloé Sengier. Two girls with both a passion for food, travels and entrepreneurship.
Truly, the idea of C O C O was born in Sydney, Australia where the girls both spend some time while the fuss around those round sweet and delicious pastries was at its best!
Candice has a real interest in organic agriculture and got the opportunity to be part of some really cool organic projects in Australia
and learn how to eat healthy and preserve the earth.
Chloé did her Masters in Integrated Marketing Communication at the University of Technology of Sydney, Australia.
She got the chance to work in the best agencies such as We Are Social and Havas Media down under.
They both united their skills to create an unique Donuts experience in Belgium and this is how COCO donuts got started.
We all know what a donut is, but C O C O Donuts is quite different. The girls wake up every morning really early to offer a Belgian experience of the gourmet donuts.
They have innovated in a unique recipe made of local and/or organic ingredients because they care about the environment we live in.
But it is also about fighting against those popular misconceptions of the traditional American donuts.
So truly, you can’t say you’ve eaten a donut until you’ve tried a COCO donut!
One last thing, ‘C O C O’ is the two ‘C’ for Chloé & Candice and the two ‘O’ are meant to be seen as DONUTS!
This said, E N J O Y!
