FUN DONUT FACT:

The Largest Donut in the World Isn't for Eating

Randy's Donuts is a fun early 20th century building in Inglewood, California, as part of a programmatic architecture movement. (click here to look up programmatic architecture, to put it simply in the 20's and 30's business owners designed their buildings to look like what they sold or did)

So what does any of this have to do with the largest donut in the world?

There Used to be a National Dunking Association

The National Dunking Association was founded in the 1930's. Believe it or not dunking had just never occurred to anyone before.

The story goes actress Mae Murray started the "craze' of dunking when she accidentally dropped her donut in her coffee and then raved about the delectable taste.

DoughBoys Donuts Uses More Than 8,000 Boxes Per Month!

Yes, that's right we don't just sell donuts one at a time (although we do sell a lot that way too) we sell them by the half dozen, dozen or whatever amount you want. We aim to please!

So next time you come in to buy a donut, pick up a box for your friends, co-workers, family or maybe just a couple extra for yourself (it's Ok we won't tell, it will be our little secret, it is the holidays!)

No Machines Here!

Here at DoughBoys Donuts we prefer to make our donuts the old fashioned way, by hand.

We often get comments on how much better our donuts taste (which we love feel free to keep them coming!). DoughBoys Donuts likes to think this is because of the extra care and personal touch we give each of our donuts. Each batch of dough is rolled out by hand and each donut is cut individually.

Here at DoughBoys we prefer this more hands on technique to ensure quality and consistant flavor in everything we sell.

 

FUN DONUT FACT:

Donuts are part of the Thanksgiving tradition

Well, in New York anyways...

New York recognized Thanksgiving Day as a national holiday in 1817. It was celebrated with many of the same traditional food items we have today, turkey, apple pie and cranberries, but New Yorkers often added doughnuts and crullers to the menu. YUMMY! 

If you would like to add DoughBoys Donuts to your Thanksgiving Day tradition please go to our North West Reno location. Sorry, our South Reno store will be closed.
