“What they did here before was successful so why change it,” said Brian Waugh, Par Mar Stores president, “we’re using the same vendors, the same product and quality as what they did before.”

The new owners were happy to be able to hire the old staff and continue producing the best donuts and pepperoni rolls in North Central West Virginia.

“The community has been very welcoming to us and we appreciate it, but we are also happy that we’re able to, you know. There was a lot of people who for a little while lost their jobs here and we were able to put some people back to work, loving what they did before,” said Waugh.

The Donut Spot is now open 24/7 at 51 North Locust St. Buckhannon, West Virginia.
