No One Showed Up to His Donut Shop’s Opening, So His Son Asked Twitter For Help

When Twitter user Billy By posted about his father being sad because of the low turnout for his doughnut shop’s grand opening, the internet answered with roaring support.

On March 9, Billy (@hibillyby) shared that his father was sad because “no one is coming to his new doughnut shop.”

The family opened the doughnut shop, Billy’s Donut, last Thursday, according to one of Billy’s reply tweets. The business is named after him.

His original tweet went viral, receiving over 470,000 likes and 223,000 shares. Despite being newly opened, the store began to do surprisingly well days after the post was published.

In his follow-up tweet, he revealed that the store was completely sold out of doughnuts and kolaches.

You are all amazing. I can’t thank everyone enough for coming out and supporting local businesses. This means so much to my family,” he added.

After seeing the viral tweet, customers immediately flocked to the shop to try out their products.

People in the area or those planning to travel to Texas can stop by Billy’s Donuts at 7022 Highway 6, Suite 800, Missouri City.
