Meet The Owner of America's Most Wanted Donuts

Get to know the owner of this fairly new doughnut shop in the Tarrytown Plaza in Phoenixville.

Patch wants to get to know the owner of America's Most Wanted Donuts, a fairly new bakery in the Tarrytown Plaza specializing in, obviously, doughnuts. Get to know the owner of this doughnut shop below.

Name: Angie Wentzel

Owner of: America's Most Wanted Donuts at the Tarrytown Plaza

Year Established: March 2012

Hometown: Ridley Park

Current Residence: Phoenixville

Earlier Stints: Wentzel's prior position was a help desk administrator and when she had her first child, she became a stay-at-home mom full time.

Favorite Doughnut at AMW: French Toast doughnut.

How did you get into the business? 

I didn't have any background in baking but I bought the equipment one day and started making doughnuts at home. The area doesn't have any kind of bakery specializing in doughnuts and thought, 'Why not?'

What do you like about the area?

The commute–it takes me three minutes to get home and I can get home in time to help the kids with homework and spend time with them.

What's the best part of the job?

The people–I get to meet a lot of people every day and get to find out what's going on in the neighborhood.

Plug: Wentzel introduces new doughnut flavors almost weekly. To stay up-to-date with their newest special flavors, follow them on AMW's Facebook page here.

I agree with Betty. Featuring local business folks and local businesses is a great idea. How about Bridge Street Chocolates, Valley Forge Pizza, Cooking Spotlight, Petrucci's, Nook & Kranny Kafe etc. I would be interested to know more about the folks behind these local businesses.

I agree with Betty also. It would be great to feature local business owners and hear their story and to get a better sense of what their about. More articles like this would be great.

The problem is the patch seems to randomly support some places while others get put on blast (minor health code violations are made front page news). Frankly, I think giving free advertising to ANY business like this is unprofessional from a journalism standpoint but as I said before, they patch is not a real newspapaer and the writers are not journalist. They simply need to full space and get enough hits to keep the ad rates high enough so they can get a pay check every two weeks. The messages boards are what makes the patch worth while. You learn more from the commenters (the ones that aren't mentally ill loons) than the actual writers.

As long as everyone is treated equally, sure why not. The problem is when one business gets a bunch of free advertising and another gets nothing or worse negative articles or stories at that are incorrect (see Dommick's from a week or som ago when they said Mim was an owner -he is not and it resulted in a bunch of negative comments and bad press for a new place in town. I see they did finally get it right today though.

APR, I agree with you on that one. That was unacceptable and should really never ever happen. The Patch needs to do a better job with more accurate reporting especially when hard working small biz owners are concerned. Glad to see we can agree on some things.
