"Boun and I decided to open a business together because we wanted to create something special on our own terms. Boun first learned how to make doughnuts from his brother-in-law and has been fine-tuning his technique for over a decade now. Prior to opening the shop, I worked as a dental assistant for 5 years. The most valuable lesson I learned from work was the importance of getting to know my patients. I now run the front counter and enjoy connecting with our customers." #deliciousdonuts @DeliciousDonut1 #questival
