Bill Hutchins

Bill Hutchins“In 1937, Bill Marsh and his wife come over to Raleigh to open Krispy Kreme Doughnuts and it was in a little room behind the Person Street Pharmacy, which was across the street. It’s not where it is now. I went over there. I was 15 years old and I couldn’t get a working permit. They had a long vat. They would cook the doughnuts and take a wooden stick and turn them. Well, I went over there and helped them and the way they paid me. I couldn’t get no money. So they’d glaze the holes and give me the holes. And my brothers and sisters would whole lot rather have them than have candy or me getting money.” – Bill Hutchins

Bill Hutchins moved to 527 North East Street in 1934 and lived there with his eight brothers and sisters and parents for most of his childhood. He lived at 504 East Jones Street in Oakwood with his wife Hildred Hutchins for many of the sixty years they were married.
