History


SINCE 1971

The History

Katy started making donuts in 1959, at the age of 16 in her father’s donut shop in Covina, California. While working there she met the love of her life Charles St. George. They married in 1964 and had the first of six children when Katy was 21. In 1965, Katy was promoted to running a Winchell’s Donut Shop in upland California. A year later at the age of 23, she and Charles bought into the franchise and opened their own store in Pasadena, California. They ran it successfully until 1971, when they decided to sell and move back to Katy’s home town of Springfield, Missouri. There they opened the first St. George’s Donuts, located on the corner of Grand and Glenstone.

Katy made donuts in the morning, Charles was a masonry during the day and made sandwiches and tacos in the evening. In 1982, they opened a second store on Scenic and Mt. Vernon. Charles passed not long after in 1985. Later, the stores current brand mascot Charles was created in his memory.

OWNER

Nick, like his brothers literally grew up in the donut shop. He was just 10 days old his first day. In his early years he would help fold donut boxes and wash dishes. At the age of seven his older sister, who was fifteen at the time, taught him how to run the register and count back change. As he grew older, his mom and brothers taught him how to cook and ice the donuts. He's thankful his family taught him how to work hard. 

“One of the most important rules was to take care of our customers and make sure they leave happy, ” he recalls. Nick continued to work at St. George’s Donuts until into his early twenties, when he decided to become a barber. After 10 years cutting hair, his mom Katy expressed interest in selling the donut shop on East Sunshine to someone outside the family. Nick couldn’t bear the thought of watching her life-long hard work be sold, so he offered to buy and continuing running what she has started.
