You might say this Dixie domestic has a yen for sweet baked goods. Southern Maid Donut Flour Company operates and franchises about 90 Southern Maid Donut shops in Texas and about a dozen other states. The chain is best known for its fresh, glazed doughnuts but it also serves cream-filled doughnuts and other varieties. In addition to its baked goods chain, the company distributes pancake and muffin mix to hotels and restaurants. Founded in 1937 by J.B. Hargrove and his wife, the family-owned business once hired Elvis Presley for a product endorsement in the 1950s.
