2020 has been a year filled with challenges, tensions and shutdowns throughout the city and another iconic bakeshop has now been added to the list of COVID-19 closures.

Daddy O Doughnuts & British Baked Goods located on North Service Road in Mississauga, has made the difficult decision to temporarily closed its doors for the holiday season.

The family-owned bakery is run by a local husband and wife team and is known for serving a wide selection of gourmet, handcrafted doughnuts (including vegan). 

The owners released a statement on their website explaining the reason for the closure.

“It is with a heavy heart that I am writing this message. Unfortunately, we are closing down until January 2021. With the good news of a COVID vaccination in our future, it has not stopped us from becoming a victim of this pandemic,” the website says.

They go on to mention that an employee at the bakery was tested positive for COVID-19 and although extensive measures were implemented to ensure a safe working environment, the lockdown measures have resulted in an increase in the spread of the virus.

The bakeshop says they are working with Peel Health to ensure the health and safety of their clients and staff. 

“We have limited options available in order to remain open until a quarantine period has passed,” the website reads.

The website also states that refunds for all prepaid orders will be issued.
