A Massachusetts YMCA has agreed to allow a local doughnut chain to open up on its premises, but on the condition that they don't sell doughnuts. According to the Patriot Ledger the Quincy YMCA and the Quincy licensing board approved the opening of a Honey Dew Donuts at the new $30 million Y branch. However, because of the Y's "focus on physical fitness," the chain will not be able to sell doughnuts. Rather, they will serve "coffee, low-fat muffins, salads, sandwiches, yogurt, fruit cups and smoothies," with all menu items being approved by the Y. The doughnut-stripped shop will open within the next few weeks. Says a spokesperson for the Y: "It's definitely tailored to the healthy lifestyle the Y supports."
