For over 76 years, we have been serving up delicious do-nuts and kolaches to our faithful customers. We continue that tradition today with over 250 stores in what we affectionately describe as "the do-nut belt": Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas and Tennessee.
It was 1936, the end of the Great Depression, when Lawrence Shipley, Sr. created a gourmet recipe for Do-Nuts. So delicious were the Do-Nuts that they have withstood the test of time. Cut by hand and served hot throughout the day, the Do-Nuts were 5 cents a dozen and were only sold wholesale. The product was so successful that it started to sell on the retail market in the mid 1940s. They were pretty yummy!!
