Friday was National Doughnut Day, and the owners of Columbia's Dixie Cream Donuts found themselves in a pickle: they ran low on doughnuts.

Kevin Hicks and his wife, Cindy, have owned the shop on Nifong Boulevard for the past three years, and Friday marked the first time they needed to fire up the fryer in the afternoon to keep up with demand.

An early-morning rush found five employees staring down a line of customers that ran out the door, and in rare form, "they were smiling." The customers, he said, waited patiently and seemed happy to see the shop full and with plenty of doughnuts. Some of were even aware of the day's significance.

"We weren't expecting this," Cindy said. "We're going to have to make more tonight."
