1/17/2014 11:48:00 AM Granny's Donuts is finally open
OAK RIDGE - After over a year's wait, Granny's Donuts and Bakery opened its doors on Tuesday, Jan. 14, and already has a fan base.
"I've been waiting every day for (Granny's) to open," says Chris Van Vlack of Oak Ridge. "The men in our walking club have come by every day to see if the place is open. This is a big deal!"
Van Vlack has been a patron of the Granny's in Kernersville and is thrilled to have one open close by - so much so that he spent the morning calling people to let them know the Oak Ridge location has opened.
Andy Sek, owner of Granny's in Oak Ridge and in three other Triad locations, says that he "really, really wanted to open" before now. Complications with trying to establish two new stores at the same time, combined with a back injury that he sustained, delayed the Oak Ridge store, he said.
Granny's is located behind the Village Store/Shell station near the corner of NC 68/150. It offers a complete assortment of donuts and other baked goods, along with coffees and soft drinks.
