Pat and Kim Dougay moved from Central to Bluff Creek in East Feliciana Parish recently, and after watching an episode of “Donut Showdown” on the Food Network, came up with the idea of opening a doughnut shop in Clinton.

Open from 4:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. Tuesday through Saturday, Sonrise Donuts at 12311 St. Helena St. offers an assortment of filled and glazed donuts, apple fritters, cinnamon twists, muffins and kolaches.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held April 2, welcoming the new business to East Feliciana Parish. Community and parish leaders attended, including Police Jury President Louis Kent and East Feliciana Chamber of Commerce Past President Martin Macdiarmid.
