And in more National Doughnut Day news, fans of the Johnny Doughnuts trucks will be happy to learn that the place is about to get a brick-and-mortar shop in the center of San Francisco, in the new 388 Fulton development, and you should get ready for some buzz and general gushing. In their words, Johnny Doughnuts uses "the finest organic cool milled wheat flour and ingredients from locally sourced vendors," and they make the gamut of doughnut styles from cake to raised to old fashioned, as well as Bismarcks, fritters, and their take on the trademarked cronut, the "crodough."
As Inside Scoop reports, owner Craig Blum has already begun construction on the 1900-square-foot space, in the ground floor of the upcoming condo project at the corner of Fulton and Gough, and he's hoping to be open by the end of the year.
This makes two notable doughnut openings due this year, in fact. As we earlier reported, Doughnut Dolly, which got its start in Oakland's Temescal district, is plotting a stand inside the Twitter building, which is due to open any minute now.
