“Donut” Fear

For most students, working a part time job isn not always the easiest task to manage between homework, extracurricular activities, a social life and maintaining a somewhat healthy lifestyle with enough sleep, nutrition and exercise. While having a part-time job in college seems to have its fair share of obvious pros and cons, finding a job that is fun may grant some relief from studies and a little extra “dough” in your pocket.

A Sioux Falls bakery that is family owned and operated offers just thata fun part-time job. Flyboy Donuts has been providing signature coffee blends and donuts to the Sioux Falls area for several years.

Ben Duenwald, the owner, says an ideal part-time job is at a donut shop, because the prime time to buy donuts works well with part-time hours; and the atmosphere is fun.

“It’s kind of like working in a candy factory. Every day is different… We come up with a lot of new flavors every day, and whenever there is a new flavor, there’s an excitement similar to when you taste a new piece of candy”, Duenwald says.

The backgrounds of the Flyboy staff of twenty people range from college students, a magician, a retiree and an oncology nurse. Duenwald, himself, didn’t even plan on making a career out of a donut shop; he has a degree in agricultural systems technology from South Dakota State University and a background in plant management.

So regardless of your major, if you are a student looking to make a little extra money during the week or if you are in the mood for something sweet, Flyboy Donuts might just have the answer you have been looking for!
