After several months of soft-open operation, the incredibly popular Voodoo Doughnut pastry shop is now officially open in its first Southern California location at Universal Studios Hollywood’s CityWalk shopping district.

Portland-based owners Tres Shannon and Kenneth “Cat Daddy” Pogson were on hand for this morning’s media event, which welcomed press to try out many of Voodoo Doughnut’s famous unique varieties. The pair also talked about why the shop is a great fit for CityWalk.


“It’s an awesome opportunity at Universal, just for the wide array of people that come through these doors every day,” said Shannon. “You’re not going to get that anywhere else.”

Voodoo Doughnut serves a range of sixty eclectic doughnut flavors, including Grape Ape, Mango Tango, the Voodoo BubbleBacon Maple Bar, and the Hollywood Cream, created especially for Universal CityWalk.

Voodoo Doughnut is now open at Universal CityWalk just outside Universal Studios Hollywood in Los Angeles, California.
