CHATTANOOGA, TN. (Times Free Press) -- Come Saturday, Tony McInnis wants to see some serious dough.

McInnis, the owner of Tasty Daylight Donuts, expects a boost in sales this weekend when the National Cheerleading Championship comes to the Chattanooga Convention Center.

Tourism officials told McInnis the event should draw about 14,000 cheerleaders and family members on Saturday and Sunday, so he's stocking his doughnut shop with two extra workers and preparing the cooks for a busy day.

Candace Davis of the Chattanooga Area Convention and Visitors Bureau said the event will generate about $5.04 million in spending. That figure is based on an estimate that each person attending will spend $180 a day on a hotel room and two meals.
