The decision for fried dough makes sense, once you hear Kyle’s reasons. Growing up in the 845, Hudson Valley, NY, he’d visited his aunt in Biddeford and made many treks to the pier at Old Orchard Beach. On the pier, what do you find? Fried dough. And what was one thing that Portland most certainly didn’t have? Fried dough.
So, in 2018—with no background in baking, food service, or experience owning his own business—Kyle picked up a food cart on Craigslist, started an LLC, and by 2019 was slinging dough.
