COVID-19 meant a tough year for many small businesses in 2020. For one local business, however, 2021 is already primed to be just a little bit sweeter. Good Things Subs & More, located at 4025 Unicoi Drive, in Unicoi, has dropped the subs and is now focusing on the more.
“We are now Good Things Mini Donuts, and we are excited,” Good Things Mini Donuts co-owner Leo Sweeney told The Erwin Record. According to Sweeney, who opened Good Things Mini Donuts with his wife, Coleen, the idea for the mini donut shop came from a trip to visit friends and family.
“We were in Delaware visiting family and friends and our friend Nick Bo-henko had an extra machine,” Sweeney said. “He has been very successful with the mini donuts so we jumped at the opportunity.”
Good Things Mini Donuts offers a dessert for every taste.
“We offer so many flavors,” Sweeney said. “We have PB & jelly, strawberry shortcake, Oreo delight, caramel apple pie, Boston creme pie and so much more. We even have banana and watermelon donuts, but our biggest seller is the cinnamon sugar donuts.”
According to Sweeney, the desserts are perfect sized and the value is great. “Most of our baker’s dozens are priced at $3.50 and we also offer donut sundaes,” Sweeney said. “We also have coffee and soft drinks to pair with the donuts.”
Donuts are not the only service that Good Things Mini Donuts offers. “We have handmade wooden items for sale and can take custom orders for unique gifts,” Sweeney said. “I also have My Small Engine Repair Guy shop located behind the donut shop for all small engine repair. Now is the perfect time to stop by to service your mowers and to get a tasty treat.”
