Donut shop switcheroo

Squeek’s Daylight Donuts closed its 1845 S. Rock Road store about three months ago, but that doesn’t mean the McConnell-ish area is without a donut shop.

Prairie Donuts opened two months later across the street at 1652 S. Rock Road, next door to the Starbucks at Harry and Rock. It’s owned by Samie and Matthew San, who are relatives of the owners of the remaining Squeek’s at 734 N. Waco. They bought the closing store’s equipment and now are making the same type of donuts — glazed, cake, long johns, cinnamon rolls, bear claws, apple fritters and more. Samie says she’d like to try adding kolache and croissants to the offerings soon.

The shop is open from 4:30 a.m. to noon daily and has about four tables. For more information, call 316-651-5553.
