Beavers Donuts

A food truck seeking to provide sweet treats to the people of Chicago, Beavers Donuts specializes in mini donuts with a wide range of toppings to choose from. Customers can pick anywhere from 4 to 35 donuts and then decide on regular or gourmet toppings. While the regular toppings of cinnamon, powdered sugar or chocolate are classics, the gourmet toppings are extraordinary, like Nutella with strawberry syrup, honey peanut butter and banana, or even chocolate, caramel and pecans, all piled on top of fresh donuts.
