Honey Dew donuts has made an interesting decision when opening a new outlet in a YMCA — they will not serve donuts.
After the Massachusetts chain was ok’ed to open in a new Quincy YMCA location, they decided to focus more on health. Sara Trubiano, spokeswoman for the South Shore YMCA, told the Patriot Ledger that Honey Dew is, “definitely tailored to the healthy lifestyle the Y supports.”
Flying directly in the face of their name, Honey Dew donuts will eschew the fried, filled and glazed deliciousness in favor of “coffee, low-fat muffins, salads, sandwiches, yogurt, fruit cups and smoothies,” according to Trubiano.
The Y will have to approve of any items the franchise wishes to sell, but it might seem rather counter-intuitive to destroy a brand in the name of health.
