Marietta Doughnut Shop Repairing Damage From Truck Crashing into Building
MARIETTA, GA. – July 26, 2018 (atlanta.eater.com) A doughnut shop in Marietta, Georgia, will be closed longer than expected, as the shop works to repair damage caused by a truck crashing into its building. The story is reported at atlanta.eater.com.*
On the evening of July 22, a pickup truck drove under a raised deck at the front of Canvas Café in Marietta, then crashed into the back of Doughnut Dollies. The driver, who has not been identified in reports, fled the scene following the crash. It is not clear what caused the crash to occur. The truck came to a stop wedged underneath the deck. Canvas Café sustained damage to its deck, which the restaurant says it will have to tear out and replace. The restaurant remains open, however.
Originally, the doughnut shop thought the damage to its business was primarily on the outside of the building. The owner believed the shop would quickly make repairs and reopen in a couple days. Now, the damage appears to be more substantial, and the owner is not sure when the shop will be able to reopen. The crash caused a main waterline to break away from the foundation of the building. The walls of Doughnut Dollies’ kitchen and a stainless steel range will need significant repairs.
Named after the wartime Red Cross volunteers who delivered coffee and doughnuts to U.S. soldiers, Doughnut Dollies sells classic and specialty doughnuts. The owner is opening a second location on Howell Mill Road, near Collier Road, later this summer.
In a recent post on Instagram, Doughnut Dollies shared pictures of the collision damage with the caption: “First of all, thank God no one was injured, and thank you to the Marietta Police and Fire Departments. Still working on repairing what turned out to be some pretty major damage to our production kitchen. We’ll keep updating you all on our progress and let you know when we’ll be able to open up again. Thanks for your support and understanding.”
