Meet Jacob and Liv, the beautiful faces behind OMG Decadent Donuts- Tweed Heads. In her former life, Liv was a Chef and Jacob emerged from the business world, post COVID, to bring delicious, gluten free, vegan donuts to the grateful folks of Northern NSW. The dynamic duo has a little man called Wilson who is fresh from the oven as well as a fur baby, a Boxer called Poppy.
“We were working on contracts in Central QLD during Covid and were looking to move back home to the coast as our contracts had come to an end. Even though both of us are quite highly qualified in our relative fields, it was really difficult finding work given the completely saturated market,” comments Liv.
“Along our travels we saw an ad for licensees for OMG! Initially Jacob thought I was crazy, that we weren’t going to make a living making donuts… but our ultimate goal was to work for ourselves and given my background as a chef and Jacob’s in business, the more we looked into the opportunity the better it looked for us.”
“The flexibility to run our business how we want, the support from OMG HQ Directors and that it has given us the work-life balance we’ve always wanted.”
The pair say they love watching kids who have allergies bite into their very first donut and adults who haven’t indulged in years, take a delicious trip down memory lane.
The reaction is always the same- ‘OMG YUM’! When they are not cooking amazing donuts, Liv and Jacob love the great outdoors. They play hard and train hard and long before they met, strength training was a common interest. Living in Northern NSW, arguably one of the most beautiful parts of the world, it would be a crime to not lap up all that beach life offers. A bit of fishing and beach action is always on the agenda and Liv has a long association with the Surf Life Saving Club.
The dedicated and ambitious couple have grand plans to expand throughout the Tweed Heads region with a full-time shop by the beginning of 2022. Watch this space! Following that, they also are preparing for a range of online delivery options and event packages. Out with the daggy wedding fruit cakes and in with the deliciously decadent donut tower that everyone can enjoy! Here Here!
Like most Australian’s Jacob and Liv dream of overseas adventures, think Croatia, Greece and Turkey. Stop it- that’s just teasing. In the meantime, they are parking that little pipedream and planning their honeymoon in Tasmania next year. You can read more about the OMG Tweed gang here.
