Mrs. Yoder's Doughnuts are back!

Forced to leave the Westbury Pharmacy parking lot last year by the county, the doughnut truck will be open for business every Monday.

Go ahead, rejoice. Mrs. Yoder’s doughnuts returned to Westbury Pharmacy today. And according to Facebook, they plan to be there every Monday from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. from here on out.

The doughnut truck was forced to leave the pharmacy’s parking lot last year by Henrico County because of zoning issues but now has the necessary permits to stay.

Mrs. Yoder’s Kitchen began operating four years ago when Jay and Judy Yoder moved to Dinwiddie County to start a new Mennonite community. The business has exploded since then, with lines on Saturday mornings at South of the James Market snaking through the crowd as diehard fans patiently wait for their large, lumpy, hand-dipped glazed doughnuts. The Yoders’ sourdough recipe gives them their distinct, addictive flavor and sets them apart from the rest of the doughnuts in Richmond.

“The busiest day has probably been 1,500 doughnuts. I have no idea how many people, because some people get half a dozen and a dozen doughnuts,” Judy Yoder told Style in 2012. “I was so surprised that people in Richmond would like our doughnuts, that they would stand in line for half an hour. And they keep coming back.”
