Rebuilding Gurnee Donuts

As some of you may have seen or heard, there was a fire that errupted in our beloved Gurnee Donuts sometime after closing hours at 2:30pm and before 5pm this past Saturday, 8/16/2014.  Luckily there was no one present at the time of the fire.  The fire caused extensive damage throughout the back of our shop as well as heat damage to the front.  My family has been serving the Lake County area with donuts for over 20 years.  We love our customers and community and have watched numerous individuals grow up, as many have also watched my brother and I grow up.  We owe everything to Gurnee Donuts.  Today, I would like to ask our loyal customers, friends, family, or strangers for any assistance in helping us rebuild our shop.  We know it's going to take some time for us to rebuild, but we definitely will be making a return.  Thank you!
