Franchise Details

The Fractured Prune® has been an Ocean City, MD landmark for 30 years. It has been a tradition for many doughnut lovers far and wide. These doughnut lovers line up in the early morning, around the block in the anticipation of creating and tasting their own creation.

The Fractured Prune Doughnut® is a specialty shop for doughnuts. What makes these just so special is the way they are created by you. “You create em, we make em!” Our doughnuts come out hot and crispy on the outside and light and moist on the inside. We then take the doughnuts and dip them in any one of our homemade glazes of your choice, which you can top with an assortment of delectable toppings.

These doughnuts are loved by kids of all ages. There is nothing sweeter than being able to create and have a HOT doughnut at anytime of the day.

Many inquiries have been made to expand our locations, so that the doughnuts could be more than a tradition for people. They could be an everyday indulgence.
