The award was presented to owners, Ron and David Kretz, the father/son duo who run the business in downtown York.

During the presentation, it was expressed how “both men see the York community as a great place to raise a family and love the small-town atmosphere. They love that Daylight Donuts has a long history and solid reputation for serving great doughnuts. As Christians, they also see this as a good opportunity to help shine His light to those around them. For Ron and David, it is a perfect combination and they look forward to serving and being a part of the York community for years to come.”

Those who nominated the business said “it has quickly become a very successful business in the York community. They are continually giving back through generous donations and sponsoring community events. The shop brings a fun and positive experience and the quality and value are consistently top tier.”
