RED BLUFF, Calif. - A popular donut shop in downtown Red Bluff was one of few businesses open during the PG&E power shutoff Wednesday, employees spoke to Action News Now on how they prepared.

Francisco Corona is an employee at "Ramos Donut House" he says the power went out on Main Street at 12:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Corona says the owner knew ahead of time that they needed to get a generator, so they did.

Corona says he and four other co-workers had to make donuts ahead of time since they knew the power was going to be out.

The generator has enough energy to power the entire store, according to Corona.

Employees at the donut shop have to use their fryer to make the donuts, at times the shop would run out but would make a new batch for customers. 

If the business didn't have power they say they would have lost thousands of dollars.

The shop also sells ice cream, iced drinks and coffee.

The donut shop hopes to be open during the PG&E power outage, as long as they can always get gas for their generator, employees said.
