In 2015, Andrew Gauthier and Monica Lucas tossed around the idea of opening a coffee shop. Then Lucas asked, “How are you going to be different.” That’s when Gauthier thought of donuts, and Groovy Donuts was born. Gauthier and Lucas both got their degrees at Michigan State University. Gauthier graduated in business, while Lucas got a management degree for fisheries and managed a few fish labs on campus. Then the idea of a coffee and donut shop came to fruition. So, they practiced making donuts at home, while also keeping their day jobs.
