QUALITY OVER QUANTITY
In 2010, restaurant veteran Vincent Brian Marsden set out to make the perfect doughnut. Using a small fryer in his home kitchen, he created samples for friends and family, who were soon raving about his tantalizing taste combinations. With their enthusiastic encouragement, Vincent Van Doughnut (VVD) was formed. In August 2013 the company purchased Clyde, a classic 1960 Grumman Olson, and brought St. Louis their first and only doughnut food truck. VVD’s generously-sized, flavor-packed creations proved wildly popular with Clyde’s loyal followers. In March 2015, following Vincent’s $10,000 first-place win on the Cooking Channel’s Donut Showdown, the company responded to public demand and opened it’s Clayton shop. VVD means top quality. Each batch of artisanal doughnuts - including the fillings, glazes and toppings - is made from scratch, daily, using the finest, freshest ingredients available. Vincent’s son, Vincent Van (Mini Vinny), has his own important job, too. He’s our official taste tester.
