According to By he was anxious about his father not attracting customers and didn't think the tweet would go viral.

The doughnut shop - named after his son - was Satharith By's American dream finally come true.

But after a few days of running the little business, Billy's dad was heartbroken by the lack of customers. The post showed pictures of Billy's Donuts' cheery yellow interior, close-ups of glazed doughnuts and an empty parking lot with the sign "Grand Opening".

Billy By helped spread the word about his dad's donut shop - and now they're consistently selling out donuts.

"My dad is sad cause no one is coming to his new donut shop", he tweeted. The tweet has got so much response that even good folks of Twitter have said they will drop by the shop to buy doughnuts from there. The family had all their goodies completely sold out. We are sure it will leave a smile on the owner's face every day as more and more people will discover the lovely doughnuts they have here. "You are all wonderful", By tweeted, along with a photo of his no-longer-sad father.

Twitter user @reihene retweeted one of the first reviews from a first-time patron which stated, "This is a review from a customer who just went to Billy's Donuts this morning in Houston!" I can't thank everyone enough for coming out and supporting local businesses.

Billy's original tweet posted on Sunday already earned over 327,000 retweets and 732,000 likes, as of writing.
