From the Wiki:

Lard Lad Donuts is a donut shop in the town of Springfield, The store’s mascot, Lard Lad, stands in the parking lot of the building holding a giant donut.

The store is a part of the Fast-Food Boulevard that seems to be famous in policemen terms, as Chief Wiggum is often seen eating some. It’s generally an estimated 3 meter tall donut store with an estimated 8 meter tall mascot of a young boy proudly holding a donut. The name and the statue of the eponymous boy are likely parodies of Bob’s Big Boy restaurants.

In one comic, he had to find missing holes from donuts for a Lard Lad donut store. In level 7 of The Simpsons: Hit and Run, he is seen with green eyes. In The Simpsons Game, he is a boss. Lard Lad Donuts is shut down by a health inspector in The Simpsons Movie, and the Lard Lad is painted in different colors and seen later in the movie during the dome sequence. The former was disproved in “E. Pluribus Wiggum” when an explosion blows Lard Lad’s head off.
