FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Who is behind “God’s Country Provisions”?
GCP is owned and operated by the Minus and Ollenburger families. Visit our “About Us” page here to learn more.
Why the name “God’s Country Provisions”?
GCP is a brand that was developed prior to the purchase of the doughnut shop. They would sit around discussing the possibility of a brand that represents how so many of us feel about the Santa Ynez Valley, highlighting what we all love about the Central Coast. When the doughnut shop became available, it seemed like the perfect location to launch the brand and our hope is that doughnuts are our first provision, but certainly not our last.
How is the Los Olivos location different than the Buellton Location?
The Los Olivos location will be ONLY offering doughnut packs! There will be three options available: a cake doughnut pack (5 doughnuts), a classic pack (4 doughnuts) and a specialty pack (4 doughnuts). They will be packaged and sealed in our custom GCP boxes to make it easy to grab and go or enjoy outside in our picnic area. All the doughnuts will still be produced and packaged in our Flagship store.
Have any of the partners worked in or owned a doughnut shop prior to GCP?
Nope! Not at all. A lot of time and determination has gone into learning how to create and design a quality product and we continue to expand our abilities and ideas. There are so many things we want to do with our doughnuts!
What are your hours?
Please visit our "Locations" page.
Can I call an order in or place a custom order for doughnuts?
Absolutely. If you are looking to pick up more than 2 dozen doughnuts, we ask that you submit your order at least 72 hours prior to the pick date so that we can appropriately adjust our production. If you are purchasing doughnuts from our menu, the price does not adjust. If you are looking to create a custom design (i.e. custom frosting color or specialty decorations), there is a custom order fee placed on each doughnut. A quote will be provided once the order is submitted. Visit our “Online Order” page here to place your order.
Why do the specialty doughnuts change each month?
Part of the fun of owning a doughnut shop is all the topping possibilities out there! We thought it would be fun to rotate flavors each month to give our customers something new to try. Over time, if we find that one flavor has really stuck with the masses, we wouldn’t dare take it away and will continue to make it once the month is over. Prime example? The Maple Bacon doughnut. There is no way we are going to take that one away and anger half of the valley!
