Mister Donut to change recipes for first time in 42 years


Duskin Co., operator of the U.S.-founded Mister Donut chain, said Tuesday it will substantially change its donut recipes to help cope with sluggish sales, the first major change since 1971 when the chain debuted in Japan.

Duskin said it will alter the recipe for dough and will use an oil it has originally developed to make its donuts tastier. The company will start selling the new products April 26 without changing their prices.

Duskin, whose operations range from house cleaning to restaurant management, operates Mister Donut shops in Asia, with Japan being its main market.
