There will also be a special appearance from “Glaze”, the do-nut shaped company mascot. “The grand opening event will be well attended and a lot of fun,” says franchise owner, Mr. Veasna Heng. “I’m excited to introduce our wonderful do-nuts and kolaches to a new group of potential customers. Our hot glazed do-nuts are definitely hard to beat.” The Pat Booker location will be open Monday through Saturday from 5am to 7pm, and Sunday 5am to 5pm, with drive thru service.

Today, Shipley Do-Nuts is under the leadership of Lawrence Shipley, III and is rapidly approaching 300 franchises with locations in Texas, Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Tennessee. The company has plans to reach 500 stores by 2020.
