Keeping our Employees and Customers Safe

As communities in northeast Kansas work through the state’s COVID-19 re-opening plan, Daylight Donuts KC is going above and beyond all local guidelines to keep employees and customers safe. Safety measures being used include:

· Implementing extra cleaning steps each day throughout the store

· Using social distancing stickers on the floor reminding customers, “Donut forget - Social distance”

· Installing plexiglass in front of the register

· Encouraging employees to wear masks and gloves at all times, as well as frequent hand washing and using hand sanitizer

· Using safety sealed stickers to ensure all preorder purchases remain sealed prior to pickup.

· We pride ourselves in the fact that all of our donuts, big and small are; rolled, cut, fried, and decorated by hand. Each of our kitchen employees go through extensive training in the baking process to ensure the highest quality – making these the best donuts around!

· Every Blue Chip Cookie is hand mixed, scooped and baked in-house daily – blended with real sweet and salted butter, premium cane sugar, pure vanilla, the best gourmet chocolates and macadamia nuts, combined with our special gourmet flour. These cookies are the best in the nation.

About Daylight Donuts of Kansas City

At Daylight Donuts Kansas City (operating stores in Kansas: Leavenworth, Lansing, Basehor, Lenexa, Olathe and Gardner), we do everything that we can to serve the best products with the best ingredients ranging from how we do our preparation each day to the consistency of the glaze and toppings applied. Quality, consistency and freshness are critical focus areas for us. In addition, we know that coffee and donuts go hand-in-hand and we have partnered with the #1 rated coffee in Kansas City and one of the most renowned coffee roasters in the nation. Those beans are then roasted using a convection air-roasting method instead of the more traditional drum-roasting method, to ensure superior consistency and a tastier, smoother cup of coffee. We only use bean grinding and brewing equipment that the Roasterie has recommended to ensure that we are able to serve the best coffee possible. More information is available at
