Paradise Donuts, located in Wichita, will shutter for the next few weeks, allowing its employees to take a much-needed break, KAKE reported.

Marilyn Wright, who owns both stores, said the business has been open throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and her workers have not been able to take extended vacations over the past two years.

“My donut crew that makes the donuts every night, overnight, is a crew of two on some nights and four on the busier nights,” Wright told KAKE. “We have just been witnessing a little bit of burnout.”

Both locations will be closed beginning Saturday and will reopen on Sept. 6, the television station reported.

Wright added that the two-week vacation will not be taken from the time employees have already earned this year, KAKE reported.
