The Portland-based shop Voodoo Doughnuts is about to open a brand new store in Orlando’s Universal Studios. This latest Voodoo Doughnuts location will be the first time the iconic eatery opens a shop on the East Coast.
Floridians can get a taste of Voodoo Doughnuts unique flavors in the CityWalk area near Universal Studios Resort. Executives at the doughnut company believe Orlando’s Voodoo Doughnuts will officially open this year in late spring.
Although Orlando’s Voodoo Doughnuts isn’t technically open to the general public, Universal Studios recently announced the restaurant is in preview mode. Interested tourists can visit the Universal Orlando Resort Blog for updates on Voodoo Doughnuts’ preview hours.
For the un-initiated, Voodoo Doughnuts is a specialty doughnut shop that first opened its doors in the “City of Roses” in 2004. The shop soon became instantly famous nationwide for its bizarre (and, of course, delicious) menu items. The most popular doughnut at Voodoo Doughnuts remains its maple bacon doughnut.
In total, Voodoo Doughnuts now offers 50 different doughnut flavors ranging from basic glazed to Oreo with chocolate and peanut butter drizzle. Believe it or not, some couples love Voodoo Doughnuts so much that they decide to celebrate their wedding there.
Even though Voodoo Doughnuts has been opened for over a decade, there are still 30-minute waits to get inside almost every day. The original Voodoo Doughnuts location is at 22 SW 3rd Avenue in Portland and is open 24/7.
With Orlando, Voodoo Doughnuts now has eight locations including Hollywood, Austin, and Denver. One of these locations is a Voodoo Doughnuts food truck that parks at 8145 SE 82nd Avenue in Portland daily between 11AM and 6PM.
