How does it feel winning Best Bakery for the sixth year in a row?

“We’re ecstatic,” Owner Mark Ostlund said. “We love what we do and the community supports us amazingly. It’s a lovely feeling we get from the community.”

What makes Sandy’s so special?

“One of our core values is community and we love doing fundraisers like Stripes Day when we make the striped donuts to support Ronald McDonald House Charities of Fargo,” Ostlund said. “Another core value is fun. We try to make it fun. It’s not all about making money.”

What’s coming up next for Sandy’s?


“We’ll have eggnog donuts and candy cane donuts starting in early December. There’s also a mistletoe donut in December. We’re always working on new flavors,” Ostlund said.
