“You have to remember that we invented the drive-thru in California. We created donuts…Initially, when we were opening Animal and showing people our example menu, they were like, ‘It’s never going to work. You are going to go out of business. People in L.A. are healthy.’ People in L.A. like their junk food. They like their hamburgers.”—Jon Shook, the chef-owner of Animal and Son of a Gun on the biggest misconception about Los Angeles, which did not create all dougnuts, but did invent doughnut poutine.
