Plant Joy was founded by, and is operated by, Jordynne Ropat. Jordynne went vegan in 2015 while studying Neuroscience in London, Ontario, where vegan options at the time were more accessible than in Windsor. After finishing her Master’s degree and returning to her hometown of Windsor, she realized that there was nowhere in the city that made vegan doughnuts. So in April 2018, she decided to make them herself.
After initially advertising only on social media and a few local events, she discovered the demand for vegan comfort food was larger than she initially thought. She began attending local markets, and renting kitchen space in the middle of the night, working 12-hour midnight shifts in order to produce enough doughnuts to keep up with demand. Using the power of social media and word of mouth, she gained a loyal following of supportive customers that began showing up to every one of her pop-ups to get a doughnut before they sold out.
After a year of pop-ups, midnight kitchen rental, and loading up the car with boxes and boxes of doughnuts, Plant Joy finally found a storefront to call home. Plant Joy is now located at 5622 Wyandotte St. E.
Plant Joy recently won best vegan dessert in a local “Vegan Dessert Bake-Off”, Our vegan paczki were featured in the Windsor Star and CBC Windsor. Our grand opening was recently featured in the Windsor Star.
Whether you are vegan or not, you can rest assured that each ingredient has been carefully selected to reflect our commitment to people, animals, and the planet. We make our dough fresh from scratch every morning - never frozen - and we make all our frostings and glazes from scratch as well. We source a variety of fair-trade, organic, and local ingredients, and work as much as possible with other local businesses.
