FENTON A home-grown business enterprise is keeping Mr and Mrs Dick Theesfield of Fenton pretty "doughnut minded." They are producing a package of cello-wrapped doughnuts, with the trade rfame of "Dick's Do•Nuts", which seem to be meeting with .hearty approval from stores in the areas where they are now getting distribution. It all began about three months ago. Mr and Mrs Theesfield; who operate Dick's Cafe in Fenton, had specialized -in serving up freshly-fried doughnuts to go with the v numerous mid-morning and mid-afternoon coffee breaks in the cafe. Then they packaged the doughnuts in an assortment of dozens and put them on sale. < The response was excellent. Dick contacted several grocers in Algona, and Whittemore, as well as FQQjbon," and Hvound up,- with orders for 1'80 dozen the first week he expanded his doughnuts business. The Theesfields do their doughnut frying on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and .their deliveries are made Tuesdays and Thursdays at present, all subject to change of course. In the adjacent picture Dick is shown with his new doughnut machine. The first one used was not adequate to handle the volume. The new, machine enables the man and wife team to get.faster production. They USQ a pre-mix batter and can fry 1% dozen at a time. The assortment in each package is something they worked out themselves. Dick is a son of Mr and Mrs Clarence Theesfield, former Fen- tort, folks, now living in Fairmont. Mrs Theesfield is the former Marie Faulstich of Lotts Creek." They purchased the Fenton Cafe from Alvin Zumach in 1957, discovered the old doughnut machine, and decided to put it to use. Now they find 'they, are "in the doughnut business." , The newest angle is a catering service. The •firm will furnish all the doughnuts, fresh and made on the spot, at-grand'openings or open houses " for • business firms anywhere in the area. They will also provide the'coffee,-and all the help, relieving the proprietors at such event's of any responsibility during the day or evening. They take their doughnut machine right with them. It • re- ,6lijrcs comparatively little space Tin which to operate. v *_ As of last week, production was running between 150 and 200 dozen* r a week. Grocers in 'the^ Ringsted - Armstrong-Esther-vi^le area have also asked about handling Dick's Do-Nuts, and more expansion is possible if the Theesfields find they can handle the production of more of the luscious, assorted doughnuts, (UDM foto and engraving).
