And then there was one. Connecticut has seen their fair share of 'Last Man Standing'. The last Howard Johnson's was in Waterbury for years, the K-Mart in Watertown was the sole survivor in Connecticut for years after all of the others went away. Now we're down to the last The Whole Donut, in all of the world. It's up to you now Enfield, we're all counting on you.

Before the New England Dunkin' and Starbucks takeover, there were quite a few The Whole Donut locations. I used to go to the Queen St - Southington one, and up until recently the Canton Whole Donut on Rt.202/44/Albany Turnpike. Sadly, word just broke that the Canton location of The Whole Donut has closed permanently. According to, the owner has retired and Avon's Luke's Donut Shop will be taking over in the coming months.


There is one last The Whole Donut, and it's located on Rt. 5 in Enfield at 920-A Enfield Street. Seize this opportunity Enfield, you see what's happened to Enfield Square, even with all of the local traffic on Hazard Ave and Elm Street, local support is crucial for any business. Instead of waiting for Connecticut's first Raising Cane's to finally, or ever open, support the last The Whole Donut, because it's an awful feeling saying "Remember that coffee? Or their Boston Cream Donuts?".

What I would give to have one more order of clams from HoJo's, or a Blue Light Special on fishing lures.
