A handwritten sign posted on the business glass door at 5729 Johnson Drive reveals the same:

A Johnson Drive fixture, Fluffy Fresh often boasts a line out the door early in the morning. The shop closes after the days fresh donuts have sold out — which is not too long after sunrise on busy days.

Owner Jim Hollinger could not be reached for comment.
