Sisters Katarzyna Mierzeyewska and Emilia Augustyn moved to America from their native Poland a few weeks ago with a dream and the ambition to back it.
The dream moved quickly, and the sisters opened their new business, Spring Donut, in Barrington last week.
Spring Donut offers offers Polish flavored drinks, pastries, quiches, sandwiches and soups in the winter months. Every item on the menu is made fresh daily.
Spring Donut has been embraced by the local business community. The sisters have felt welcomed so much so they decided to join the Barrington Area Chamber of Commerce.
Chamber members and village of Barrington joined the sisters for an official ribbon-cutting ceremony Nov. 18 at Spring Donut, 113 S. Cook St., Barrington.
