The Donut Shack
It isn’t a food truck festival without mouthwatering desserts. The Donut Shack is bringing both great donuts and a multi-decade spanning dream to bring hot and fresh mini donuts to the Carolinas.
For Dawn and Duane Hunt, it all started when they discovered a Lil’ Orbits donut machine at the Charlotte Motor Speedway over ten years ago. According to The Donut Shack website, they were fascinated by the machine’s ability to make donuts and observed the donut creation process for twenty minutes. After witnessing donuts in the making, Dawn and Duane left with a new dream to share the joy of mini donuts with the world by starting their own mini donut concession stand.
As the years went on, the thought of owning a Lil’ Orbits donut machine stayed fresh in their minds and finally fate aligned in order to make their dream a reality in 2021.
Dawn and Duane Hunt will be bringing their passion for mini donuts to the 7th Annual South Carolina Food Truck and Craft Beer Festival with help from their new truck, The Donut Shack.
