After doubling in revenue every years since opening, Hurts Donut Co. ranked first on Springfield Business Journal’s 2018 Dynamic Dozen.
The Springfield-based doughnut chain topped 11 other fast-growing companies based on annual revenue and three-year percentage growth. Companies were honored last night during the Dynamic Dozen event held at The Old Glass Place downtown.
