North Carolina-based chain Duck Donuts has officially debuted its first Houston outpost.

The brand new sweet shop at 3157 West Holcombe Boulevard announced its arrival over the weekend on Facebook, kicking the doors open on Saturday. It’s the chain’s first foray into Texas, though a second outpost is expected to open soon in San Antonio. Founded in its namesake Duck, North Carolina by Russ DiGilio, the shop is known for its selection of of toppings, coatings, and drizzles, which pastry enthusiasts can pile atop the shop’s signature vanilla cake doughnut.

In addition to those DIY options, Duck Donuts also has plenty of ready-made combinations, like a doughnut tossed in cinnamon sugar and drizzled with caramel or topped with crumbled Oreo cookies, hot fudge, and mint icing. Coffee, the fried pastry’s national companion, will also be on offer.

Duck Donuts is now open seven days a week, from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, and 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday through Sunday.

We are so excited to say we are NOW OPEN! We can't wait to meet you, Houston! Stop in any time this weekend from 8am to 5pm to try our Warm, Delicious, and Made to Order® donuts and signature coffee.
