Legendary Voodoo Doughnuts from Portland is finally opening in Dallas
A doughnut shop responsible for pioneering "extreme" toppings like bacon is coming to Dallas: Voodoo Doughnut, one of the first to do so-called gourmet doughnuts and who created the now-ubiquitous Bacon Maple Bar, is opening a store in Dallas.
According to a release, they're opening at 1806 Greenville Ave. #120, in a storefront next to Swizzle tiki lounge. This will be their 20th location. They will not say when they're opening other than the official opening date "will be revealed in the coming months." Annoying.
Voodoo CEO Chris Schultz says Dallas has been on their to-do list.
"We’re thrilled to unveil our plans to establish a presence in Dallas—a city we've had our eye on for quite some time,” Schultz says.
Voodoo Doughnut was established in Portland, Oregon in 2003, pioneering the gourmet doughnut category with unique flavors such as the Bacon Maple Bar, Memphis Mafia, which is a fried dough with banana chunks and cinnamon, topped with glaze, chocolate chips, peanuts, and chocolate and peanut butter drizzle; and The Cannolo, a cylindrical shaped doughnut whose hollow center gets filled with options such as sweet cream or wild berry jam.
They have more than 50 flavors, including 25 vegan options.
Most important: They also spell "doughnut" correctly. None of this illiterate donut nonsense.
They've earned oodles of national press and in 2017, hired Schultz, a former VP for MOD Pizza, to lead the company’s expansion.
They currently operate in Oregon, Colorado, California, Washington, and Florida, and Texas, where there are locations in Austin, Houston, and San Antonio — three out of the five cities where CultureMap has a bureau. It was really only a matter of time.
