OC’s Duck Donuts Launches Vegan Donut for World Vegan Day
Donut franchise Duck Donuts, known for their “Warm, Delicious and Made-to-Order! donuts” will be launching a vegan cake-based donut on November 1, in honor of World Vegan Day, at their Huntington Beach and Irvine locations.
After much consumer demand, testing, and research, customers can now enjoy the same made-to-order in-store experience with their vegan-friendly options.
“As the U.S. vegan consumer industry continues to rise, so does the demand for an accessible and tasty vegan product,” said Russ DiGilio, Duck Donuts founder and CEO. “After much research, trial and error, and in-store testing, we are ready to launch our first alternative donut base option, allowing us to reach a new audience of customers who can now enjoy our warm, delicious donuts, in the same unique, made-to-order atmosphere.”
The vegan cake-based donut is described as a lightly spiced cake that’s soft in texture, offering the aroma of mild spice notes. Ordering this donut, customers can experience the franchise’s standard made-to-order process, including customizing your donut by choosing from an array of vegan-friendly coatings, toppings, and drizzles, watching the donut being made fresh and always served warm.
“Since we opened in 2018, we have received many requests from customers for a vegan donut, which speaks to the consumer demand and lifestyle preference of those in Orange County,” said Gary Kopel, Orange County franchisee. “We are very excited to be the first Duck Donuts market to expand our product offering with the introduction of our new vegan donut.”
Beyond the two Orange County locations, Duck Donuts looks to expand the vegan donut to additional markets where there is an increased demand in 2020.
