We put the "Fun" in Funnel Cakes!
Mike Davis began his funnel cake career
in 1985 when he bought his first food con-
cession. It was a part-time job for the first
5 years, then marrying Linda in 1990 gave
him the partner he needed to boost the
business into full time operation.
With a blended family of all sons, it was a
true "adventure" combining family time
with business all summer long. Chad
Davis, the oldest of the four boys was 15
when Mike and Linda married. Younger
brothers were Richard Davis, 13, and
twins Michael & Brian Reaves, 12 years
Make it Pretty!
It took several years before Mike would
trust outside employees with the cooking.
It's very important to both Mike and Linda
that their funnel cakes are the best in
California. Linda can be heard telling the
employees to "make it pretty!"
