Juniper Hill got a little sweeter on Wednesday morning as the long awaited OMG Donuts opened its doors to a hungry Frankfort.
Store Manager Jenny Nam said that she and her team have been making donuts in Lexington for over a decade and they are excited to be able to serve Frankfort.
When Nam and company officially turned on the open sign at 5:30 that morning, the display case was brimming with all kinds of fresh made donuts and pastries.
Fast forward three hours and the once full case only had about a quarter of the supply it started out with and the store had a growing number of customers. As one person would leave with a box of glazed or chocolate-covered delights and a smile, they were quickly replaced by several more hungry breakfast seekers.
City Commissioner Katrisha Waldridge was one such customer on hand to try out the new purveyors of breakfast pastries and assorted smoothies.
"I am super excited," Waldridge stated as she collected her order. "It is always good to bring new businesses here and bring variety to the community. It is going to be more competition, of course, with all the donut places across our community, but it gives us another location on the west side because we don't have any donut places around here. They are either downtown or on the east side. This is a great opportunity.
Tish Shade, president and CEO of the Frankfort Area Chamber of Commerce, also came out on opening morning.
"When I first got here I was a little shocked that there weren't donut shops," Shade noted. "We have some wonderful bakeries in town and they are fabulous, but just a regular old donut shop, we didn't have any, which I was surprised about. I am especially excited because I live on the west side of town and I can pick some up for our members which is what I am going to do today. We are excited for this business."
OMG donuts is located at 930 Louisville Road and is open daily from 5:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

With Katrisha Waldridge and Tish Shade, we don’t need a Welcome Wagon!
“OMG” is an abbreviation of “Oh My God “ that many Christian’s perceive as taking the Lords name in vain ,if not used when speaking directly to their maker .
When I was a child my dear sweet grandmother would correct my siblings and I when we said “ oh my God” or some other form of what she saw as taking the Lords name in vain and tell us to say ,” Oh my goodness “ or “ My ,My “.
A Great Uncle would sat “ Dad burn it” !
Welcome to the discussion.
State-Journal.com’s comments forum is for civil, constructive dialogue about news topics in our community, state, nation and world. We emphasize “civil” at a time when Americans, in the words of the current president, need to “turn down the temperature” of political debates. The State Journal will do its part by more carefully policing this forum. Here are some rules that all commenters must agree to follow:
Absolutely no attacks on other commenters, on guest columnists or on authors of letters to the editor. Our print and online opinion pages are sacred marketplaces of ideas where diverse viewpoints are welcome without fear of retribution. You may constructively critique the ideas and opinions of others, but name-calling, stereotyping and similar attacks are strictly prohibited.
Leeway will be given for criticism of elected officials and other public figures, but civility is essential. If you focus your criticism on ideas, opinions and viewpoints, you will be less likely to run afoul of our commenting rules.
Keep comments focused on the article or commentary in question. Don’t use an article about the Frankfort City Commission, for example, to rant about national politics.
Hyperpartisanship that suggests anyone on the other side of an issue or anyone in a particular particular party is evil is not welcome. If you believe that all Democrats are socialists intent on destroying America or that all Republicans are racists, there are lots of places on the internet for you to espouse those views. State-Journal.com is not one.
No sophomoric banter. This isn’t a third-grade classroom but rather a place for serious consumers of news to offer their reactions and opinions on news stories and published commentary.
No consumer complaints about individual businesses. If you’ve had a bad experience with a private business or organization, contact the Better Business Bureau or the government agency that regulates that business. If you believe the actions of a private business are newsworthy, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will consider whether news coverage is merited.
Absolutely no jokes or comments about a person’s physical appearance.
No promotion of commercial goods or services. Our outstanding staff of marketing consultants stands ready to help businesses with effective advertising solutions.
If you state facts that have not been previously reported by The State Journal, be sure to include the source of your information.
No attacks on State Journal staff members or contributing writers. We welcome questions about, and criticism of, our news stories and commentary but not of the writers who work tirelessly to keep their community informed. Corrections of inaccurate information in news stories should be sent to email@example.com rather than posted in the comments section.
