National Donuts Day, June 3rd, 2016

National Donuts Day

ST. LOUIS, MO: (STLRestaurant.News) – National Donuts Day is on the first Friday of each June and this year it falls on June 3rd.  National Donuts Day is one of the more legitimate food holidays in existence.  It started in 1938 by the Chicago Salvation Army to honor women who served donuts to the soldiers in World War 1.

Many franchise donuts franchises like Dunkin’ Donuts and Krispy Kreme give away one free donuts every holiday.  Dunkin Donuts has been serving donuts for more than 66 years and is the #1 retailer of donuts in the United State offering more than 70 varieties of donuts daily.

Donuts is one of those foods that everybody loves.  I honestly don’t know anybody that doesn’t love donuts.  Nobody will admit to eating them, however, think about the donuts shops, Hostess, Little Debbie and so on.  There are donuts everywhere and they wouldn’t make them if consumers didn’t eat them.

Find your favorite donuts shop/store for next Friday, June 3rd and enjoy yourself a donuts.  Does anybody know the correct spelling?  Is it donuts or doughnut?  Who care!  Just give me a doughnut.

Restaurateur of the Year

ST. LOUIS, MO: (STLRestaurant.News) – When people think about St. Louis, a great dining city isn’t necessarily the first thing that comes to mind. However, Gerard Craft, who last year became the first St. Louis-based chef to win the James Beard award for Best Chef: Midwest, is doing his part to change that image. The mastermind behind several trendy St. Louis restaurants Niche, Brasserie, Taste, Pastaria, and Porano Pasta, has made the Restaurant Business Online’s Power 20 list. The list is compiled of individuals who are both reinventing and reinvigorating the restaurant industry. These entrepreneurs are developing the local dining scene, setting trends and standing out. Although they vary from heads of regional chains to independents, this year’s Power 20 spotlights leaders are on an unending mission to build up their home markets and give guests an exciting reason to come to—or stay in—town. Innovation and inclusion are the core values of Craft’s Niche Food Group. While Craft has stuck to upscale until now, his newest Porano Pasta marks another fine-dining chef shifting to fast casual. The build-your-own pasta concept combines quick, Chipotle-style service with quality Italian food.
