Stan’s Donuts opens first shop on the South Side

Stan’s Donuts & Coffee opened its first South Side location Friday in Hyde Park, and two of the first 100 customers got free donuts for life by finding the elusive golden donut.

People waited in line starting 4 a.m. for their chance to win a golden donut.

The first 100 customers at the Hyde Park location got a free donut but only two got the coveted golden donut that guarantees them free donuts for life.

One of the winners was 11-year-old Charlie Campbell, who is in the fifth grade.

The other lucky winner was Chen, an economics student at the University of Chicago.

"Its tough to say. I really like Krispy Kreme but they’re kind of not really donuts," Chen said, when asked about his favorite donut. "Yes, Stan’s Donuts is great."
