Spring IAB Spotlight
Our IAB Spotlight is on Veronica Bencivenga – owner of Duck Donuts. Veronica is
a small business owner, wife and mother of three in Smithtown whose family
brought Duck Donuts to Long Island in 2018. Veronica has brought success to the
many companies she has worked for over the last twenty years and now strives to
do the same for her family's new small business. After graduating college with an
accounting degree Veronica went into Public Accounting, earned her CPA and
then went on to hold many Executive Level financial positions in the Healthcare
On a personal note, Veronica is an active community member donating her time
and resources over the years through PTA Committees, Girls Scouts, Boy Scouts
and now supporting a wide variety organizations throughout Suffolk County
through her family's small business, Duck Donuts. Soon after the health crisis
came calling, Bencivenga knew she needed to expand marketing efforts to let
customers know that Duck Donuts was still alive and quacking. She set up a
partnership with ShopRite of Hauppauge to sell the franchise’s sweet offerings in
the supermarket for a couple of months.
From multi-million dollar start-ups to running Girl Scout events and everything in
between, Veronica enjoys engaging people to help them achieve personal and
professional success. She brings all her energy, skills and enthusiasm to whatever
she sets her sights on. She has been a volunteer Partner in the Smithtown IAB for
over 5 years and is always available to help out when asked.
Veronica is the Co-Chair of the Business Committee on the Smithtown IAB and
works closely with us to enhance the education going on in our Business classes.
We are so happy to have her guidance and expertise and we know we can always
count on her business knowledge to help us out.
Duck Donuts has sponsored many school & IAB events by supplying her famous
donuts to us without charging a cent. She and her family are extremely generous
and do so much to help our schools and community. We are proud to call her a
Partner in the truest sense of the word!
