Chicago donuts made the old fashioned way

After briefly working at two other donut shops, Buritt Bulloch opened up his own shop, and now nearly 50 years later, he still makes his famous donuts the old fashioned way. At age 80, “Mr. B” as family, friends and customers call him, works six-days and 60 hours a week at Old Fashioned Donuts, 11248 S. Michigan Ave., which he started Nov. 4, 1972.
