Manna Donuts to close
Manna Donuts, which has been in business at 2923 Chino Ave. in Chino Hills for 30 years, will close at the end of the month.
A $700 rise in rent is cited as the reason to close the business, said Ron Collosi, a friend of the owners, who said they would have gladly signed another five-year lease, but a 20 percent increase in rent to more than $4,200 a month was the primary reason to close.
“Manna’s has suffered through the pandemic with the loss of business from Chino Hills morning commuters, school age families, churches and businesses,” Mr. Collosi said.
