Lisa Laoye, Sabine Guillaume Hayes & Carol Ha

In this episode, we are in South Philly chatting with Carol Ha, owner of Okie Dokie Donuts, in her commercial kitchen. Did we mention her gourmet donuts are delicious and happen to be gluten-free?! Carol is a former photographer and print-maker who left her job of 13 years at the Philadelphia Art Museum to create her own business. This unlikely business was born out of a desire to give her gluten-intolerant friends a chance to eat donuts again.

In this episode Carol shares:

  • How baking started from a hobby and developed into a need to help people with gluten intolerance.
  • The inspiration behind her unusual donut flavors.
  • How she scaled her business using social media.
  • The key decision that led her to pursue a new career in pastry. 
  • The trickiest aspect of being a pastry chef.
