The history of Good Company Doughnuts & Café dates back to the Murphy family leaving their small farm in Connecticut for the sunny shores of Florida.
In 1962, Earl and Shirley Murphy opened the original Mrs. Murphy’s Donuts in Jupiter, Florida, which began a legacy of successful stores around the country.
Jim and Kate Murphy carried on this tradition and successfully ran Mrs. Murphy’s Donut Shop in Jaffrey, New Hampshire, for nearly two decades until health issues forced them to sell the shop in 2003.
In those 17 years, Mrs. Murphy’s Donuts
Jim’s brother Earl and his wife Rose Murphy owned Mrs. Murphy’s Donuts located in Southwick, Massachusetts, with their daughters. They earned national recognition for excellence from established media outlets, including:
They’ve been a staple in the community for over 40 years!
In 2016 the stars aligned. Jim and Kate picked up and moved to Arlington where Kate’s brother Charlie and wife Melissa were living to start a new adventure. After two long years of planning and preparation, the families and business partner Tim Terry decided to take the leap and opened Good Company Doughnuts & Café in Ballston.
At the start, our goal was to create a unique all-day cafe, a neighborhood spot, a place where excellent quality doughnuts, coffee, and food are made with love. A place where families, friends, and neighbors can gather and laugh and create memories. Good Company Doughnuts & Café is a family’s dream come true.
Besides, who better to eat good doughnuts with than good company.
Donut stop thinking about tomorrow…
