A company called Tommy’s Donuts, from Utah, I believe, franchises a product that I am told tastes just like KK. KK does not make the machines, but sells a "system". Other companies will do it for less. Tommy’s as part of your franchise fee tells you what to buy and where. Why try to copy KK? Why not copy the guys who make a better donut? Can’t the guys at your supplier help? I knew a sugar salesman who spent half of his time in kitchens showing how to better use his product. Times have changed, but I know that there are still good reps out there.
