Houston’s doughnut game is about to get stronger with the anticipated arrival of Portland-based Voodoo Doughnut next year.
The chain’s inaugural area location (3715 Washington Avenue) will open at a TBA date in January, according to a jobs listing flagged by Community Impact. The colorful sweets shop was originally expected to arrive this summer.
The Portland-based offbeat fried dough pros, known for its doughnuts in funky shapes and flavors like Bacon Maple Bar and Portland Cream sold in bright pink boxes, has a second previously-announced location planned for Space City at 1719 Westheimer Road.
Houston’s already got a lively doughnut scene. But Voodoo Doughnut will differentiate by slinging doughnuts 24/7 in Houston’s shop, which will be open at all hours of the day and night. The Houston Voodoo Doughnut will also be home to the chain’s first drive-thru location, as Eater Houston previously reported.
The around-the-clock operation hosted a job fair last week to fill 70 positions.
