Shannon Mercado

Circa Doughnut
Greenville, SC

Shannon Mercado is the owner and operator of Circa Doughnut, a Greenville-based doughnut pop-up shop that specializes in artisan old-fashioned cake doughnuts. Having graduated with a degree in Communication in 2012, Shannon spent over a year in customer service and office management honing social media skills as a mere hobby. After some initial experiments making doughnuts with friends, the idea of creating a small business of selling fresh doughnuts with high social media appeal was born. 


After just one year, Circa has garnered a following of over 5,000 people and has become a locally and nationally recognized brand with at least 3 popup events weekly, and 2 wholesale outlets.
