Bears Dough was founded in November 2017, by Claire Callender; an ex Dancer, Personal Trainer and P.E Teacher.
In 2009, Claire had a premature son and with his health being so fragile at the time, she was inspired to create a complete lifestyle change; ensuring her boy grew strong, while facing head on,the habits that no longer served her. She changed her eating patterns for life (removing most meats, eggs, dairy and soy) and got active again. This led to a complete transformation physically as well as mentally, and life changed for the better.
One fine day, Claire bit the bullet and decided to follow her intuition and dreams of becoming a woman with her own business, leaving her teaching career firmly behind. After a great first go at making vegan doughnuts (yet a tornado of disasters after this obvious beginners luck), Bears Dough was born!
I have pursued this venture because my perception on life is that there is always an alternative in this world, we have a choice in everything and we should exercise it. The Doughnuts are just one way of showing this!
