Cookeville's long-running donut rivalry is in doubt.
After nearly 50 years, a Cookeville staple is in jeopardy as the Big O Donuts building has been sold.
The business has been served with an eviction notice letting them know they must be out of the building by the end of April, according to employees.
Employees said that they are looking for a new location to continue the popular donut shop, and more information on the future of the shop should become available in the next few weeks.
The property sold most recently to Randel Wallace in June 8, 2018 for $157,500. It was sold in August 2017 for $295,000.
Wallace did not return request for comment by press time.
