“Donut chute” gives customers a fun way to limit contact


LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) — Mama Crockett’s Cider Donuts set up what they call a “donut chute” out of their food trucks.

It’s a way to help keep the process of ordering donuts completely contact-free, and employees say their customers are getting a real kick out of it!

“It’s been phenomenal,” said Kiley Jeanis, Director of Operations for Mama Crockett’s Cider Donuts. “Honestly, it’s been hilarious to just watch. And you see it on Instagram and on Facebook, people are tagging us with their videos, and people are saying, ‘Hold on, don’t send them yet, let me get my video ready.’ It’s so fun.”

Customers pre-order their donuts and pay online. Pickup times are spaced five minutes apart to keep crowds under five people, which is below the federal guidelines of limiting gatherings to 10 people.
