It is National Doughnut Day and popular Tulsa bakery, Antoinette Baking Company, sold out of their delicious specialty treats just a few hours after they opened their doors.
Although the downtown bakery could not serve donuts all day, they prepared different tasty items that kept lines wrapped around the store.
Co-owner of Antoinette Baking Company, Molly Martin, says the store began as a catering service and has since transformed into a successful operation she never thought possible.
“People are really nice and they're excellent to support us. But everyday I'm shocked and I feel very lucky to have what I have,” Martin said.
National Doughnut Day was a day created by the Salvation Army in 1938 to honor members who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I.
Many bakeries and specialties shops use the day to help honor the Salvation Army as well as display other items that attract pastry enthusiasts.
However, Antoinette Baking Company was caught off guard by the amount of people that waited to celebrate the national holiday.
“We really like celebrating food holidays that are applicable to a bakery. We have doughnuts everyday so when a food holiday comes along it gives us a chance to celebrate something that we do either way. They went really quickly,” Martin said.
