For those of you who have as big of a sweet tooth as some of us here at Flyby do, you'll be happy to know that the pop-up "Donut Shop" might become a regular Sunday morning phenomenon in Quincy.
The brainchild of Sam R. Peinado '15 (who learned how to make donuts over Winter break and came up with the idea of selling them on campus), the Shop had its grand opening this past Sunday at the Quincy Grill and stayed open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m..
The Shop quickly proved to be a popular pre-brunch/post-lunch snack option, and sold over 350 freshly made apple cider cake donuts and donut holes on its first day of operation—a test run for determining the future of the Shop.
Peinado and Anneli L. Tostar '15—who helps out with the marketing aspects of the Shop—plan to take a break this weekend to refine their recipe. They said that the Shop's continued existence depends on its popularity with students.
"We're still trying to find out if it's a feasible endeavor," said Tostar, who is also a Crimson arts and news editor. "Whether or not it's fiscally successful is what we're looking at."
The first test run of the Donut Shop went well enough to convince the owners to have a second test run, which will take place on Sunday, May 5. They are counting on your continued interest in their enterprise: keep buying donuts, and the Donut Shop might just be around for a long time to come!
