Starting a new business from scratch is difficult! Putting in long hours developing or creating your idea takes time and a lot of effort. This is a heartwarming story about a dad who opened a donut shop but nobody came to his Grand Opening. That is until his son got involved.

Billy By is that son and he was heartbroken that his father’s newly opened store, Billy’s Donuts didn’t have any customers. But Billy’s love for his parents and social media gave his father a helping hand. After reading the story online, many people made their way to the store and proceeded to buy the shop out.
