Years lived in Toledo: 32
Occupation: The Donut Guy at Holey Toledough
My story, in one sentence: I’m just a guy who
loves great food & drinks, family time, dad jokes, and Metallica.

The Toledo Zoo is the place in Toledo I’m most proud of.

The best meal I had in Toledo was at Devour in Rossford. The whole menu is great!

Taste of the Nation is my favorite annual event. It’s a great cause and one of the biggest foodie events of the year. Everyone pulls out all the stops and does their best to offer something special and unique.

A business Toledo needs (but doesn’t have) is a really good top notch ramen shop and/or an In & Out Burger.


My favorite piece of local art/architecture is The Hillcrest Hotel.

The street I drive on/walk on most often is 75/475 because I’m impatient.

One thing I’ve always meant to do in Toledo, but haven’t, is to go kayaking.  

If I could change one thing about Toledo, I’d make it easier for new start-up small businesses to get assistance with funding and less regulations that make it almost impossible for many to open/ stay open/ or thrive.

If I knew I could get away with it, I would hop the fence at the Zoo and ride a giraffe.


The best view in Toledo is on top of the I-280 Skyway Bridge during the 4th of July fireworks.

The Toledo businesses you’ll most likely find me at are Cilantro’s, La Chalupa, Extreme Results by Vince, or making donuts at the new Macs N Melts/ Holey Toledough stores.


If Toledo had a new motto, it would be “You can do better in Toledo, if you try.”

When I’m craving carne asada tacos and a margarita, I go to La Chalupa or Cilantro’s.

The artists and musicians I love are Tony Touch and The Contaminator (Jes Ludwick).

I always brag about Toledo’s economic and social comeback.

Chrys Peterson is the Toledoan I most admire.
