When it comes to hauling doughnuts, a Ford Focus just won't cut it, according to student and entrepreneur Jayson Gonzalez. 

The Champlain man made headlines when he started a resale service of Krispy Kreme doughnuts in Minnesota. Gonzalez would drive 270 miles to a Krispy Kreme store in Clive, Iowa, pack his car with up to 100 boxes, each carrying 12 doughnuts, then drive back up north to deliver them to customers in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area.


UPDATE: Krispy Kreme reverses course, allows Minnesota student resale service

Right before his 20th run to the Hawkeye State, Gonzalez received a call from Krispy Kreme's Nebraska office telling him to stop. However, Krispy Kreme reversed course and will now allow him to continue his resale service. 

Now that the college student can continue the service, he is in search of a new vehicle. Gonzalez has launched a GoFundMe to help raise funds to purchase a vehicle. He says he is in the market for a used Sprinter van, SUV or truck. 

"I know a lot more people in Minnesota are going to want in on the weekly runs. Any donations would mean the world to me, and I am thankful for all the support I have received so far," Gonzalez said in the GoFundMe
