Overview of the Merchant and Their Business
Coco Donuts, born in 2016 in the heart of Belgium, embarked on a quest to redefine the donut landscape. Their unique vision centered around the creation of small batches of 24-hour raised brioche donuts, meticulously handcrafted to provide the ultimate artisanal donut experience.
Unlike the stereotypical American fast-food-style donuts, Coco Donuts distinguishes itself through a commitment to using organic and locally-sourced ingredients, an expression of their unwavering dedication to offering the highest quality products.
Every component, from homemade oreos to luscious marshmallows and delicate petit beurre biscuits, is prepared in-house to showcase their innovation with a distinct Belgian touch.
Each morning at Janson, their donuts come to life, freshly handcrafted, inviting donut enthusiasts to savor an exceptional treat.
Project & Challenge
In the transformative year of 2020, Coco Donuts, a relatively young company with audacious aspirations, reached a pivotal juncture in its journey. Seeking to propel its growth to new heights, the company sought a significant change.
The answer lay in transitioning from a static showcase website to a dynamic e-commerce platform, a strategic move designed to amplify their presence, enhance customer awareness, and fuel business expansion.
However, the challenge extended beyond just shifting to e-commerce. It encompassed the centralization of sales and the dissemination of order preparation information to both in-store teams and the kitchen staff.
The endeavor was not just about creating an online sales channel; it was about streamlining operations and making information more transparent and comprehensible across all facets of the business.
Moreover, Coco Donuts aimed to replicate the delightful in-store experience online by offering a variety of donut boxes with distinct flavors. This required the creation of an online platform that would not only cater to diverse customer preferences but also recreate the rich, multisensory experience that patrons had grown to love in their physical stores.
It was a multifaceted challenge that encompassed the fusion of technology, logistics, and a dedication to delivering the essence of Coco Donuts' artisanal creations to a broader audience.
Their journey didn't stop there. We embarked on another ambitious mission, which is currently ongoing: the creation of a dedicated B2B sales space. The aim is to provide a streamlined platform for B2B transactions, simplifying the purchasing process for resellers and professional customers, thus strengthening relationships with business clients. The main challenge was to recreate the easy interface B2C customers have with Shopify.

In response to the unique requirements presented by Coco Donuts, we opted for a comprehensive solution centered around the Shopify platform. Shopify's inherent flexibility became the cornerstone upon which we crafted an online presence that resonated with the essence of Coco Donuts: colorful, elegant, and irresistibly delicious.
