Evans Cafeteria Opened

Closed for Renovations

After only 2 short years in business, the building needed to close for renovations. During this time, Mr Evans, decided to refocus his business on just donuts instead of the cafeteria business, at large.


A New Partnership is Born

Mr. Evans approached Standard Oil with a proposal to open Cooper Donuts shops on the premises of Standard Oil Gas Stations. The venture was so successful, they launched 15 stores inside Standard Oil stations.
