There is an art to donut-making, and that art typically begins around midnight. At least that’s about the time Kim Hour and her team begin making the donuts she serves to happy customers at Yummy’s Donut in Boonville, Missouri. Now, she is bringing her talents – and treats – to Columbia, where she plans to open the donut shop’s second location this February.
“We are trying to expand our brand, and Columbia will be a really good place to start off,” says Hour. “It’s a big town and there’s a lot of customers that actually know us from Boonville, and we feel like this is going to be a great opportunity.”
In addition to donuts, the Columbia location will offer espresso drinks plus breakfast biscuits and sandwiches. There will also be a seating area inside for customers to sit and enjoy the new space.
Some of the most sought-after donuts on the menu include glazed twists, bacon-maple long johns and bear claws, as well as the handmade cinnamon rolls, but there is one classic donut that always stands out to customers.

“One of our most popular donuts is just the regular glazed, because they are light and fluffy and soft like a melt-in-your-mouth type of donut,” Hour says.
The Columbia store will be located at 200 N. Providence Road, and Hour is looking forward to expanding her business farther into Missouri.
“I know the donut hours are crazy,” Hour says. “No matter how long you do it, you just never get used to it, but when we look at our donuts and compare them to other places, it motivates us to do what we do. Also, seeing the smile on our customers’ faces when they come in the morning complimenting our donuts and appreciating us for being there just keeps us going and helps us forget how tired we are.”
No opening date has been set yet for the Columbia location of Yummy's Donut.
