The smell of fresh doughnuts will fill the air on Main Street when Windsor’s only doughnut shop opens Oct. 14.
YoYo’s Donut owners Hyo and Susanna Jang moved from Oklahoma to Windsor in June, and said they’re looking forward to setting up the shop in Windsor.
The shop will feature classic glazed and cake doughnuts, cinnamon rolls, French crullers, apple fritters, filled and unfilled long johns and doughnut holes. The shop, located at 1296 Main St. in the old Caffe Victoria restaurant, will include a drive-through window on the west side of the building. In addition to the doughnuts, the menu will also include plain croissants or ones with bacon, ham, egg and cheese. Beverages will include four different flavors of coffee, milk, juices and soda. Six different price tiers of doughnuts will range from 79 cents to $1.49 per doughnut and $7.90 a dozen to $14.90 for a dozen of speciality doughnuts such as s’mores and peanut butter and jelly. Doughnut fillings will include Bavarian cream, apple and raspberry.
Hyo, 36, has experience owning a doughnut shop. He ran one in Moore, Okla., for three years prior to arriving in Windsor. Hyo said he’s been making doughnuts since his college days, and has mastered a secret recipe since 2007.
“It’s fluffy, it melts in your mouth and is fresh,” Jang said of her husband’s doughnut recipe. “They’re not heavy. It’s awesome. I can’t eat any other doughnuts beside my husband’s.”
Hyo said all the doughnuts will be made fresh daily (from midnight to 5 a.m.) and from scratch. There will be seating for 20 to 24 customers, and the shop will employ five to six people.
Jang, 30, said Hyo’s friends gave him the nickname of YoYo because they couldn’t pronounce his first name correctly, and that’s why they came up with the name of the shop.
“We always wanted to live in Colorado, and we were supposed to go to Fort Collins,” Jang said. “Actually, this location came up in April and we decided to come here instead of Fort Collins. We’re really excited.”
Being the only doughnut shop in town isn’t why they moved to Windsor, but Hyo couldn’t believe there were no other doughnut shops in town.
“It kind of surprised me. In Texas and Oklahoma areas, there were doughnut shops everywhere,” Hyo said. “That means I have to make a really great doughnut for the customers.”
