Duck Donuts Now Open in Lee-Harrison Shopping Center

Duck Donuts is now open at 2511 N. Harrison Street, in the Lee-Harrison Shopping Center.

The store opened earlier this week to big crowds. As of 4 p.m. today, the store was jammed with school-aged kids and a few parents.

The well-reviewed Outer Banks, N.C.-based chain has been expanding quickly, with several new locations in Virginia in addition to the Lee-Harrison store, which replaced a former Baskin-Robbins.

Duck Donuts specializes in made-to-order donuts coated in toppings like peanut butter icing, maple icing, bacon, and rainbow sprinkles. The low-frills menu also includes breakfast foods, orange juice, coffee and bottled beverages.

The humble donut, once most closely associated with midnight shift cops, is one of the top food industry trends of 2015. Some bloggers have opined that donuts are “the new cupcake.”

Duck Donuts to Open Fairfax and Arlington Locations

Beloved donut chain Duck Donuts is slated to open new locations in Arlington and Fairfax this summer.

The Fairfax branch will open in the “first or second week of June” in the Boulevard Shopping Center at 10694 Fairfax Boulevard, said a Duck Donuts employee today by phone.

The Arlington franchise, which currently has no opening date, will be located in the Lee Harrison Shopping Center according to a brochure distributed May 12 by the development company that owns the center. It appears as though the new branch will open in the space formerly occupied by a Baskin-Robbins.

Duck Donuts specializes in made-to-order donuts coated in toppings like peanut butter icing, bacon, and rainbow sprinkles.

Earlier this month, the donut company opened a branch in Herndon. Duck Donuts also plans to open new locations in Newark, Del., Charlotte, N.C., and Bristow, and Virginia Beach, Va.
