A US donut store chain has opened its first location in Canada in Burlington.
Duck Donuts, with its motto of Warm, Delicious and Made-to-Order!, is opening at 5010 Pinedale Ave. in Appleby Village.
The shop is locally owned and operated by Burlington husband and wife duo, Diana and Stuart Reid, and it opened it’s doors on May 21.
“As long-time Burlington residents, it is an honour to open our first Duck Donuts location in the community we have been a part of for more than 20 years,” said Stuart Reid.
“We look forward to welcoming guests through our doors and introducing them to warm, delicious and made-to-order donuts this brand is known for.”
On Thursday at 10 a.m., Duck Donuts CEO Betsy Hamm and chief development officer Eric Lavinder will be in town at a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10 a.m.
The 1,525-sq.-ft. store reflects the franchise’s iconic beach theme and family-friendly atmosphere complete with indoor and outdoor seating, featuring outdoor picnic tables from local carpenter, Lil’ Country Woodshop.
In addition to donuts, the Burlington location also serves coffee, espresso beverages prepared with freshly ground beans provided by local roaster, iDrinkCoffee, breakfast sandwiches, frozen beverages, select retail items and more.
The milkshakes and donut sundaes are made with ice cream from Canadian creamery Kawarhta Dairy.
In Burlington, guests will experience the same made-to-order donut process and availability of coatings, toppings and drizzles, including traditional favorites such as chocolate icing with sprinkles and more adventurous creations such as maple icing with chopped bacon.
The shop offers a viewing area where children and adults alike can watch their donuts being made.
As part of the Quack Gives Back program, rubber duck sales during grand opening weekend will be donated to Community Living Burlington, to support the organization’s mission to enrich the quality of life and to promote full and meaningful inclusion in their community of people who have a developmental disability.
Quack Gives Back promotes partnering with community groups to raise awareness and funds for their causes.
Donuts at this location will be made fresh to order, seven-days a week: Tuesday-Saturday, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday-Monday, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Duck Donuts opened its first locations in 2007 in the beach resort towns of Duck and Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, with the intention to create an oasis for vacationers to enjoy warm, delicious, made-to-order donuts.
