about

The Golden Skone

Katherine and Thomas X Smith III were living in Idaho in the 1960’s their family of seven children, when Tom started his first restaurant, The El Ray. He began working on a dough that would fry into the perfect type of bread for a sandwich. Soft and fluffy texture inside, crisp and golden on the outside, frying up evenly, and strong enough to hold fillings. It took him seven years with a specific mixture of several ingredients to get it perfect! His first Skone Shoppe was in Olympia, WA in 1970.

 

In 1972 they moved to Arizona and opened the first Golden Skone. Eventually, he had five stores, but due to some unfortunate events beyond his control, they all closed down. The smartest thing he did was keep the recipe a secret. Many have tried and failed to replicate it. No one outside family has the ORIGINAL GOLDEN SKONE recipe.

Tom was an entrepreneur, inventor and dreamer. Katherine was the rock of the family, who everyone adored. They have an amazing posterity, and it is an honor to continue their legacy and reopen the Original Golden Skone.
