Around the same time as Dunkin’ Donuts coming to life, another company was too; the Big Donut Drive-In. The Big Donut Drive-In was created by California business man, Russell C. Wendell. However, the Big Donut Drive-In did not remain a steadfast name and was sold to different owners in the 1970s. The most famous of these remaining doughnut stands is Randy’s Donuts. Randy’s still uses the same look as the original and continues to serve the same style of doughnuts to this day.
There have been other doughnuts shops that have sprung up, but these are the ones that have stood the test of time.
