At his Rings Donuts + Coffee shop near Preston Center in Dallas, Hennessey doesn't do artisanal or get all fancy-schmancy—he's just trying to make donuts the old-fashioned way—only better.
"We do classic doughnuts, not gourmet," Hennessey told CultureMap Dallas. "Our doughnuts aren't topped with bacon or candy, they're regular doughnuts, but higher-quality than what you generally find."
