The Story Of…Alok Oberoi | Donut Hut

Webinar Online, Des Moines

Presenter: Alok Oberoi, owner of Donut Hut  Date: August 5, 2021 Time: 12 – 1pm Location: Online Come and listen to the stories of entrepreneurs, small business owners, and community members making their mark in Iowa. As you create your own story, treat yourself to this time each month to rekindle your entrepreneurial spirit and connect with others. In August listen to the amazing story of Alok Oberoi, owner of Donut Hut. About our speaker To run my own business was my childhood dream. Not a big one- but one which I can enjoy with my customers with mutual respect. After waiting for many years, Lord Almighty gave me the opportunity to open Donut Hut in September of 2009. “The taste of excellence made fresh Daily” is our tagline. We make our donuts and fancies fresh every day. Our customer service and fresh donuts are what we strive for. Donut Hut serves almost 50 varieties of homemade fresh products. I believe if you do good for others, good will happen to you in return. I run my business under the same mantra. I am blessed to have the support of my family, my staff, and wonderful customers. Any business can make money, but I believe in making relationships. I often think of opening more branches of Donut Hut because my customers want me everywhere, in Iowa and out of state also. Some of them even travel hours to buy our products. Running a business is not easy. It is hard work, unexpected events, and long hours. It is patience, honesty, and humbleness. And for me, I would rather do this than anything else.   Register by Clicking Here
