I operate a diner. Is there a difference between the type of electric fryer I would need to use for frying donuts as compared with one used for frying french fries and onion rings?

Yes.  Donut fryers tend to be VERY, VERY shallow and wide; whereas, "regular" fryers tend to be deep and narrow.  If you go to a fast food restaurant, like McD's or Wendy's and see the people making french fries those are standard fryers.

Dedicated donut fryers are shallow tank and are dedicated for that purpose.

Another thing to consider is whether you will be frying ONLY doughnuts in the fryer or if there will be other food going in there as well. You don't want to be putting fries, onion rings, fish, wings, etc. in the same fryer as the doughnuts, as it may have a slight alteration in the taste based on whatever else was fried in it before...We have an electric unit from Belshaw that might work for your purposes: https://www.facebook.com/njrecorp/photos/a.[phone number]7[phone number]0.[phone number]1084/[phone number]60473/?type=1&theater

Donut fryers usually have a larger surface area for frying, but the depth is much more shallow compared to a traditional fryer.  This is because you don't fry a donut in the same technique that you would fry french fries.  While it's not impossible to fry a donut in a traditional fryer, you would have less surface area to work with, so if you want completely uniform and even donuts every time, you may have to fry less quantity in more batches.
