Shipley Donuts, or Shipley's as it is also called, offers more than sixty different varieties of fresh and delicious doughnuts. This small, Southern doughnut chain began in 1936 in Houston, Texas. The Hendersonville store has been serving up delicious doughnuts for as long as any of the locals can remember and way longer than the larger doughnut chains have been in town. Shipley Donuts have a little more to them than some of their national competitors, and they're not quite as sugary-sweet. If you want a tasty doughnut and you like the idea of trying what the locals love, Shipley's is the place. - Lynn-nore Chittom
