Welcome to Lukumades!
The page of the world’s most unique doughnuts franchise!
At Lukumades™, we specialise in creating hand-crafted Greek doughnuts with a modern twist. Whether you like your doughnuts smothered with Nutella, sprinkled with crushed Oreos or drizzled with salted caramel sauce, we have a little something for everyone!
We began our doughnut journey in 2016 out of a food truck that roamed the streets of Australia’s ‘foodie’ capital – Melbourne. We hit the ground running and given our immense popularity, we ventured into our very first bricks & mortar store in just 9 months!
*Excited* doesn’t even come close to describing everyone’s reaction when Australia’s first store dedicated to Greek doughnuts was born! It has been one hell of a journey and we have thoroughly enjoyed teaching the people of the world about ‘Lukumades’. Given our huge success, naturally, franchising has been the next step!

Keep an eye out for new additions to our doughnut family both in Australia and abroad COMING SOON!
what are lukumades?
All around the world, Greeks hold onto their family Lukumades recipe, each with its own special twist. Lukumades otherwise known as ‘Greek doughnuts’ are sold all over Greece from small dedicated patisseries, quite often no bigger than a hole in the wall, and are usually served as a treat in the afternoon with honey syrup and crushed walnuts.
In our quest to come up with the best recipe for our own Lukumades, we begged shop owners, our friends and relatives in Greece to part with their tightly held secrets and share their insider tips for the best doughnuts.
After hours of recipe testing to get our doughnuts just right, we think we’ve found the perfect balance of the golden crunch on the outside and a light fluffy dough on the inside. Keep an eye on this space while we also fine-tune our gluten free option.
All you have to do is decide how you want your doughnuts, and trust us, that’s not an easy decision!
