Ben Duenwald has envisioned bringing Flyboy Donuts to the east side of Sioux Falls since he bought the business in 2014.
Next week, it becomes reality.
“I like it,” he said of the store, which is in the final stages of construction at 10th Street and Bahnson Avenue.
“I’ve been very anxious for a long time. Even before I bought the business, I was looking over here to build.”
The space was The Flower Mill, which moved farther east on 10th Street. Flyboy has totally renovated it, using lots of reclaimed materials and offering plentiful booth seating.
The new location also includes a kitchen twice the size of his original store at The Bridges at 57th, which will support Flyboy’s growing wholesale business.
Hiring is going well for the new store, Duenwald said.
“I don’t really need more people. I hired a long time ago and hired three additional managers six months ago,” he said. “So I got to know them and they got to know me, knowing two stores are hard for one owner to do alone.”
The plan is to open May 8. Hours are still being finalized.
