Colorado Springs mom-and-pop startup Amy's Donuts received Mayor Steve Bach's Spirit of the Springs Entrepreneurial Award Wednesday.

The shop owned by Dallas transplants Amy and Chin Kim has enjoyed a meteoric rise in popularity since opening roughly a year ago in an old Dairy Queen at 2407 East Fountain Boulevard.

The allure for customers is the unusual variety of donuts, with toppings including Cap'n Crunch Cereal, gummy worms, bacon and bananas, and Butterfingers, just to name a few. Later this month, Amy's will open its first Pueblo location in the former KFC at 1303 South Pueblo Boulevard. Bach said Amy's represents the best of the entrepreneurial spirit of Colorado Springs.

Amy Kim says she and her husband hope to expand to Denver and elsewhere in the coming years. "We're seeing a lot of profit and we've got a pretty good system down," Kim said, "so it's time for us to open some more stores and have more people exposed to fun donuts."
