Holey Rollers Sensible Sweets is opening a coffee shop in The Paseo Arts District this summer.
Andrea Koester started the business in November 2015, making vegan donuts for wholesale. In April 2016, she launched a food truck that sells vegan donuts and local coffees direct to consumers. That theme will continue in the new, fixed location, which will be on the north end of the Paseo Plunge building at 3008 Paseo Drive.
“We are very excited to be moving into a district that already supports local business,” Koester says.
“The Paseo is also a great match for us because of people like Shaun Fiaccone; he has long supported the vegan and vegetarian community at Galileo’s and now Picasso Café.”
The ownership team, which includes co-owner Josh Gautreaux, expanded its services early to include event catering and the expanded space in The Paseo will give the company room to expand again, and make their products available more regularly.
We get a lot of calls from people wanting to know when and where our products are available,” Gautreaux says. “With a fixed location, people will be able to come to us, and we can extend our availability with the truck and wholesale accounts.”
Koester said they plan on working with Elemental Coffee for espresso and other local roasters on a rotating basis for house coffees.
While Holey Rollers has focused exclusively on baked vegan and gluten-free donuts up until now, Koester said they would offer a line of fried donuts and other pastries – still vegan, though – in the new space.
The architect for the project is David Ledbetter and the build-out will be handled by Revive OKC. Gautreaux said it is too soon to know a specific opening date, but that summer 2017 is definitely the goal.
The shop will be open six days a week, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
