Voodoo Doughnut, a highly acclaimed and celebrated brand in the gourmet doughnut realm, has an official grand opening date in Fulton Market. On December 16th, doors will swing open to the public after the 8 am ribbon-cutting, and the first 50 individuals in line will be treated to a delightful surprise.
For those not part of the cult following, Voodoo Doughnut offers more than 50 kinds of gourmet doughnuts, including 25 vegan options sold in the notable pink boxes. And doughnut lovers line up for them.
Voodoo Donuts was conceptualized more than twenty years ago when old friends and entertainment-oriented Portlanders Kenneth “Cat Daddy” Pogson and Tres Shannon shared a desire to fuse exceptional hospitality with an entrepreneurial venture.
From research, they realized a scarcity of doughnut shops in Portland and a month after the inauguration, it garnered national media coverage. Today, Voodoo Doughnut has over 21 stores nationwide, with Chicago now being the eagerly anticipated 22nd store.
The store will be located in Chicago’s historic Fulton Market at 945 W Randolph Street, Chicago. Voodoo Doughnut’s CEO, Chris Schultz, exclaimed, “We are thrilled to open our first store in Chicago just in time for all to enjoy some of that Voodoo Magic during the holiday season.”
