Established in 2012, Sidecar is the brainchild of Sumter & Chi-lin Pendergrast and chef Brooke Desprez, a creative team brought together by a shared vision of creating a beautiful, new type of gathering place for their beloved community…

…One offering perfectly hand-crafted doughnuts, delicious coffee, and infectious smiles for all.

With Chef Brooke’s inventive cooking style, and the Pendergrast’s backgrounds in visual arts, the trio brings an artistic flare to the culinary venture, which can be seen in the creativity and passion poured into not only their unique doughnuts, but also into every detail of their brick and mortar stores.

Sidecar’s mission is to consistently use a “from the earth” approach in their sourcing of ingredients, their innovation with new flavors, and their commitment to customer service.

We believe in Doughnuts, Coffee, and Community, and would love for you to check out how we are putting that motto to use with our SideCares program.  Learn more about the Sidecar team below. Have a Nice Day!
