DoughBoys Donuts is next Business Recognition Program recipient

Post Date:07/31/2019 2:16 PM
The City of Reno recognized DoughBoys Donuts as its fourth Business Recognition Program recipient at the July 31, 2019 Reno City Council meeting.

Exceptional quality, hand cut baking techniques and personal customer service has made DoughBoys Donuts Reno’s friendly, delicious neighborhood donut shop for the past decade.

Their flagship store was founded by Bob and Marge Kenny in Hollywood, California in 1980. Donut Stop became a local favorite and quickly grew to multiple locations in Southern California. In 2009, the family journey continued when Bob’s son, Jay Kenny, moved the family’s recipes with him to Reno… and DoughBoys Donuts was born.

“Quality Ingredients. Great Service. Family Owned,” Jay said. “Those three principles guide everything we do here at DoughBoys Donuts. We are very honored to receive this recognition from the City of Reno, and we are so fortunate to be able to give back to our community that supports our family business.”

DoughBoys Donuts makes it a priority to support the community in which they live and do business. DoughBoys has bolstered a number of schools, nonprofit organizations, Little Leagues and community events through sponsorships and donations.

“The City of Reno is extremely proud to recognize DoughBoys Donuts,” Reno City Councilmember Neoma Jardon said. “Jay and his staff have truly made a difference in our community. They have set a high standard for philanthropy, and have become a shining example for how a business can give back.”
