We Officially opened our doors October 24, 2015. The name was created by Phyllis Gray one of the two owners. Her vision behind the name was to incorporate two things chicagoans love, and thats popcorn and donuts. We only have donuts thus far, however, popcorn will be coming soon. The second owner her husband Richard Gray, was the muscle behind this project. For nearly a year or more he helped build and oversee the construction process of what we know now as Poppin Dough. Richard, also is in charge of glazing,flavoring,frying and greeting/cashier duties. Phyllis Gray is in charge of inventory, finances and greeting/cashier duties.
Willie Gray (The Son) he is the head roller and he also is in charge of frying as well. Zhaque Gray (The Daughter) is in charge of the marketing,social media, cashier/greeter & overall register and shop organization. Jordan Gray (The Youngest Son) is now in charge of greeting/cashier duties however he is also charge of eating the donuts. Everyone plays their part in a family success story.
