The economy has been making a slow recovery and giving business owners more confidence. A Tea business's recent expansion is proof of that.
Flyboy's is the most recent to expand their shop. Opening this week, it's now only one of a handful of donut shops in the Sioux Falls area. And expanding to Sioux Falls has been their goal all along.
Rolling, cutting, frying and glazing is a process you will see every night at Flyboy Donuts in Tea. But now, these bakers are frying up even more business with their second store.
"We knew once we purchased the donut shop in Tea that within a year we wanted to expand into Sioux Falls. So this location opened up and we decided this is a perfect location for us," Co-owner Kari Hoff said.
And only two days into their new location, they're selling donuts left and right.
"It's going better than we expected. We know people love donuts and if we can give them a good quality, hot, fresh, warm donut then they will keep coming back," Hoff said.
With the better than expected turn out, the owners are more than pleased with their decision to expand.
"We kind of had that intention all along. After the reaction we got in a small town, we knew there was not enough of that home-town kind of feel in Sioux Falls and everyone loves donuts," Hoff said.
With how well they have been doing these past few days, they are asking if you know you want to buy a couple dozen donuts, you pre-order the day before.
Flyboy's asks that you call before 3 p.m. to place your order. You can contact them at 605-376-9839. For more information on Flyboy Donuts, head over to their Facebook page.
