Doughnut shops team up

Usually chefs are hesitant to swap their prized recipes, but for a couple of local doughnut shops, sharing their sugary treats with each other has proved to be the perfect recipe for sweet success.

Last month, Glen Allen-based Daylight Donuts merged with Dixie Donuts in Carytown to bring their customers each other’s doughnuts.

Both will remain open, but as of Jan. 1, Daylight Donuts became the second Dixie Donuts.
