N'yum N'yums We Could Certainly Use 'Round Here
My hometown needs a doughnut shop. Just saying.
Could Be Our Doughnuts
I've already selected my business trade name. Minions, make with the state and federal trademark registration.
I've noticed that humans LOVE doughnuts. They simply cannot get enough. Mooresville (Indiana) lacks a mostly doughnuts restaurant. Sure, there are fine bakeries--Biff's Pioneer House Bakery, Sugar Mamas, Pixys Sweets 'n Eats, the bakeries at Marsh and Kroger groceries, etc.--but these are full-feature pastry enterprises. I'd focus strictly upon doughnuts and make them especially tasty for humans. I have two doughnut connoisseurs on my personal staff. They never met one they didn't like.
Our specialty doughnut would be the "holes," which we would call our n'yum n'yums. I suppose we would have to learn to make gourmet coffees. Whatever. That's why I have minions.
Could Be Our N'yum N'yums
There's a Dunkin' Donuts restaurant just a few miles away (in Camby, Indiana), so we would have some stiff competition. But not everybody drives from Mooresville to Indianapolis to work everyday, so those who don't have to go well out of their ways to get their n'yum n'yum fix. We could fill that enormous gastronomical need.
Naturally, knowing nothing about running a restaurant or cooking doughnuts could be construed as a major handicap. But we felines have a can-do attitude essential to American small entrepreneurial undertakings. My minions will just have to work extra hard to make it so.
Location is critical to successful business. Where should our little shop be? That will take some thought. I'll consider where we might be best positioned in town. Not the Library, I'm afraid. Can't mix public service with fried dough. Sorry.
All this doughnut talk reminded moi of one of my favorite children's books. Here's our book trailer featuring it.

Slobberdogs like doughnuts, too, it seems.
