A Son’s Tweet About His Dad’s Struggling Donut Shop Went Viral and Sales Skyrocket

You know how the old saying goes…when in doubt, tweet it out – well, at least it worked for this guy.

Billy By’s dad opened Billy’s Donuts in Missouri City, Texas and sales were pretty slow. So Billy did what any normal person does in 2019 to try to boost business: he took to social media to plead his case.


You know people couldn’t resist Billy’s dad standing behind the counter waiting for customers to come and buy up his delicious donuts.

And guess what? The tweet picked up steam, went viral, and people started going to the store!


It worked!
