Cambodian-American-owned donut shop still going after multiple hardships
Tempe’s Donut Parlor is filled with fluffy, glazed, doughy goodness made fresh by Chhaya Tan and his team. The sweet circles aren’t just meant for commodities, there’s a history behind the family business. In the late 1970s, Chhaya's mom fled Cambodia and escaped genocide. Between 1.7 and 3,000,000 people died when the communist party Khmer Rouge took over between 1975 and 1979.
