Route 8 Donuts

Do you ever get a crush on a business?  It happens to me every once in a while…  First I get a crush on the business because I’m into their product or service, etc. Then it goes even deeper and I get completely smitten because I realize that they also kick ass at marketing and business or I wouldn’t have gotten that crush on them to start with.  Maybe it is a business owner thing?

I saw Route 8 Donuts MONTHS before they opened their storefront.  It was a long and excruciating wait for them to open their doors, I was addicted and I hadn’t even tried their donuts yet.  Finally they opened and I managed to drop by on a day that they didn’t sell out early and they were well worth the wait.  I bought a mixed dozen donuts [basically just for me because no one else in my house eats sweets] and had to photograph their beauty before I devoured them and sank happily into a sugar coma.  This box contained red velvet, chocolate frosted with sprinkles, strawberry frosted with sprinkles aka the Homer Simpson donut, Fruity Pebbles, pumpkin spice, and Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

If you are anywhere near Christiansburg, make sure you drop by [EARLY] for a sweet treat.  The donuts are delightful, the shop is adorable, and the owner is a wonderful human being, awesome #GIRLBOSS, and marketing guru.  They are located at 1225 W Main St, Christiansburg, VA 24073 and you can visit their website here.
