For the past nine years, my sister and I have owned a
wholesale printing business. Today, we own and operate a
Paradise donut shop. Making the switch from operating a roll
press to a rolling pin was difficult to say the least.
Neither of us had ever made a donut, nor had we ever seen
one made. We had no idea what equipment would be needed or
where to get it. No idea of how to set up a kitchen even if we

Oklahoma. With at least eight other competitors, not counting
supermarkets, to be where we're at today is a testimony to the
professionalism of the folks at Paradise Donuts. They know
what they're doing and how to show others how to do it too!
