It's Not Kid Stuff, It's S&K Mini Donuts

If you want to succeed in business, start out young. That’s what Shanice and Kylie Lagerquist are doing. They have gone into business with S&K Mini Donuts, providing tiny hot morsels that disappear in no time.
Shanice is 8, a third-grader at Irle School, and her sister Kylie, 7, is in second grade. On Monday, while Irle students were celebrating the 100th day of school with treats and special activities, the halls were redolent with the smell of warm cinnamon. The sisters made free samples of their mini donuts for everyone, to introduce their product.
Their mother, Candy Lagerquist, said they saw the mini donut machine at a commercial food fair and they wanted to go into business. They bought into the State Fair Mini Donuts franchise, which supplies the cooking oven and the donuts, made fresh and shipped every Monday. The process uses a conveyor belt through a little oven to finish the donuts, not hot oil, making it suitable for young cooks. When the donuts tumble off of the belt, they are tossed in cinnamon sugar or drizzled in maple glaze.
The girls plan to sell mini donuts at all the home hockey games and tournaments at the Valley Event Center, and they have the OK from Hi-Line Hockey, which sells concessions. It will be the only hockey arena in Montana to offer fresh hot donuts. Although the machine is small, it can turn out 1,200 donuts an hour.
S&K Mini Donuts can also be ordered for delivery to offices or parties by calling 263-4512.
