Sunshine Donuts in San Luis Obispo is also celebrating the holiday but is not offering any promotional offers apart from its usual local fare.

National Donut Day was first celebrated in the early 20th century to honor the tradition of Salvation Army volunteers who made donuts for soldiers on the front lines of World War I.
