- Entenmann’s Donut Facility in Carlisle, Pennsylvania is the largest Donut Plant in the United States, producing more than 40 million boxes of yummy delight each year!
- Believing that people were more inclined to buy what they can see, the Entenmann’s brothers, William, Robert and Charles, and mother, Martha, invented the familiar “see-through” cake box for baked goods in 1959!
- At one time, more than 168 million pounds of chocolate have been used for Entenmann’s Rich Frosted Donuts, enough to fill all of the Great Lakes!
- In the early ’50s, Frank Sinatra used to call the Bay Shore bakery to place weekly orders from Entenmann’s!
