Several years ago, over a shared passion for making people happy with great food, Ryan & Geri Martha O’Hara of Big Spoon Creamery and Jim & Amy Watkins of Steel City Pops became fast friends. It seemed that every time they were together, discussions of fun ideas related to food were always brought up. Sons Donuts was created from these talks and the name would become a reference to the two families, having five sons between them and no daughters. After three years of sharing their joy for donuts, Sons has a small menu which offers unique flavors for all. The best part is that the majority of their donuts are offered in a miniature size. Make sure to get your Sons donuts with a scoop of Blue Spoon and stop by to celebrate National Donut Day!
