Norman and his wife Beatrice once owned a full-blown bakery. they were younger then and had the energy to be up early and keep up with the demand of the village's bread needs. the couple grew tired and successful, and so they sold their bakery to a new young couple who were eager and restless for work. Norman and Beatrice took some time off. they visited other villages. they spent time in the city. but all that visiting made them homesick. homesick for their kitchen, their ovens, clouds of bread flour. that's when they decided to open the donut cart.
