They will have trained for a month come June 15, and perfected their technique and at the end of the day, a local Facebook fan of Nicola’s Donuts will (hopefully) be a Guinness World Record holder, provided they can eat more than six powdered donuts in three minutes!
Rachel Waatti and Michelle Kaw, owners of Nicola’s Donuts since 2011, applied to the Guinness Book of World Records and have been granted permission to officially attempt to break the record, currently set by Shamus Petherick (Australia) at Donuts Coffee N More in Deception Bay, Queensland, Australia, on December 12, 2010.
From now until June 14, the owners are asking Facebook fans to sign up to attempt to set the record, hoping to fill 10 seats with eager (and hungry) customers. Those looking to sign up are invited to “like” their page and send them a message expressing their interest: https://www.facebook.com/NicolasDonuts
“We know our fans love their donuts, so who better to break this record than them?” said Waatti. “We are confident that one of our loyal customers can beat this record and we are excited to play a part.”
Now through June 14, Nicola’s will also be offering “training” session at their newest location in The Yogurt Spot at 15006 North Dale Mabry Highway (the store moved in early March from its previous location at 14390 North Dale Mabry Highway). Those looking to train will be given 90 seconds to eat three powdered donuts. Those completing the task will not be charged for the goodies.
Evidence will be collected in accordance with the Records Guidelines provided by Guinness and will subsequently be verified and approved by a Guinness World Records Adjudicator – the official Guinness World Records judge – who undertakes the assessment process to determine whether a world record has been achieved.
