Ribbon cutting, and concert will take place on National Donut Day
CHESTERFIELD, Mo.—May 25—Daylight Donuts, located at 155 Hilltown Village Center Drive in Chesterfield, is proud to announce its Grand Opening Weekend will take place from June 4th through June 6th. A ribbon cutting with the Chamber of Commerce will be held on Friday, June 4th (National Donut Day) at 12:00 p.m. A concert by New York City singer songwriter Julian Velard will be held at 7:00 p.m.
Daylight Donuts opened on November 20, 2020 in the midst of the pandemic. Despite the challenges, the shop has garnered over 35 million views on TikTok and a wide online following. Partners Drew Selman and Drs. Daniel and Julie Ring are the trio that saw an empty restaurant and decided it should not be empty anymore. Construction on the bakery began in April 2020.
Daylight Donuts will be giving away free glazed donuts all weekend to celebrate their Grand Opening and National Donut Day.
Daylight Donuts isn’t your normal donut shop. In addition to donuts, the shop also offers many other sweet treats, frozen custard, coffee and boozy donuts and milkshakes. On Friday nights, the shop hosts the game Dungeons & Dragons. The shop owners tend to get creative, so the menu is constantly changing with new menu items available while old favorites stick around. All menu items are not carried at all times.
“My favorite part of the shop is just interacting with people,” Selman said. “One of the things I enjoy most is when the little kids come in, and they stand in front of the case and point to the doughnuts they like best. Just to see the smile on their faces when they get the donut they want is really exciting for me.”
