BLOOMINGTON, Ill. -- Denny's Doughnuts and Bakery is thanking customers for 40 years of support.

As part of their 40th anniversary celebration, they are offering discounted prices on doughnuts and other bakery items all month.

On Tuesday, customers only paid 40-cents for a cup of coffee.

"It feels great to be here for 40 years," said Marketing Manager Leo Marquardt. "I've seen so many other businesses turn 40, to be a part of that now is just insane."

Family members of the bakery's founder Denny Marquardt have worked tirelessly to keep his successful business going. Denny passed away in 2011.
