Shipley Do-Nuts is an American doughnut chain with more than 250 franchised stores located in the Southern States of Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee, Mississippi, Georgia, and Alabama.[1] It has its headquarters in Northside, Houston, TX.[2][3]

The Shipley chain originated in Houston, Texas, in the 1940s after selling direct by wholesale since 1936 after Lawrence Shipley, Sr. created a recipe for doughnuts.[4] Shipley's son and grandson, Lawrence Jr. and Lawrence III, carry on the tradition of producing doughnuts and kolaches.
