Just a few weeks after announcing that it would open a Houston location, wildly popular Portland fried dough chain Voodoo Doughnut already has a second outpost in the works.

The chain has signed a letter of intent to lease a space at 1719 Westheimer, taking over a two-story house that currently houses an antique shop, according to the Houston Chronicle. This location joins the previously-announced Voodoo Doughnut location at 3715 Washington Avenue, which will house the first-ever location with a drive-thru lane that bleary-eyed pastry enthusiasts can use to score doughnuts 24 hours a day.

For the unfamiliar, Voodoo Doughnut has attracted a seriously devoted following thanks to sweets like maple bacon bars and more than 60 different flavors of over-the-top doughnuts, including the Loop, topped with vanilla icing and Froot Loops, and Grape Ape, topped with “grape dust” that tastes a whole lot like grape Kool-Aid powder, and lavender sprinkles.

The Washington Avenue outpost of Voodoo Doughnut is expected to arrive sometime this summer. Stay tuned for an opening date for the Westheimer location.
