When you’re looking to satisfy your sweet tooth, look no further than Country Style Donuts in Hanover Park, IL. Country Style Donuts bakes fresh, hand-cut donuts in addition to having a dazzling variety of ice creams, milkshakes, and breakfast sandwiches. Manan Joshi, the company’s founder, was looking to expand his business through the Next Level Northwest (NLNW) Business Accelerator Program. With the help of coach Sybil Ege, Country Style Donuts hired two new employees and projected 23% revenue growth. When the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in shelter-in-place requirements that limited how Country Style Donuts could operate, the company was able to leverage strategies they had developed during their NLNW engagement to stay engaged with the community, and is gearing up for a return to full operations.
