Highland Park’s contribution to carbs

Thanks to York Blvd. for pointing out that Highland Park is home to the first store in the Yum Yum donut empire:

“In 1971, Philip C. Holland started Yum Yum Donut Shops, Inc. The first shop was a former Orange Julius at the corner of 26th and Figueroa in Highland Park, Calif. This shop is still in operation an is one of the highest volume shops in the chain.”

Not sure what inspired York Blvd. to remind us of this fact or if Yum Yum’s birthday is coming up. But you do really need a reason to eat a donut?
