Thursday, November 3, 2016 Saint Paul, Virginia PRESS Ass cia: i: 50 cents By Jerry Couch Everyone likes freshly- prepared donuts. With 35+ varieties to choose from, you're sure to find one that will become your newest favorite at St. Paul's newest business, the Donut Connection. The targeted opening date is Wednesday, November 9th. The Donut Connection in St. Paul is owned by partners Sam and Coni Runyon of Grundy, and Mike and Julie Ramey of Richlands. They are also owners of the Donut Connection in Grundy. I interviewed Sam for this article and found him to be dedicated, personable, and possessed of a strong desire to succeed and remain right here in Southwest Virginia. Sam isn't an absentee fran- chise-holder. He will be at the St. Paul store on a reg- ular basis. His daughter, a student at SWVCC, will work at the store as well. Sam and his family are "home folks," and I like him.
