The first Voodoo Doughnut on the East Coast is now officially open! Yesterday the shop had its official dedication with co-founders Kenneth “Cat Daddy” Pogson and Tres Shannon, who led the celebration. They introduced the charismatic brand icon, the Baron of Voodoo Doughnut, who made an in-person appearance for the first time.

Yesterday’s opening marked the company’s eighth location and first on the East Coast. Voodoo Doughnut first began its partnership with Universal Parks & Resorts when they opened another location at Universal Studios Hollywood a little over a year ago.

For those who have never experienced this wild doughnut shop, some of their unique offerings include the savory yet sweet Bacon Maple Bar; Grape Ape, the doughnut with grape dust and lavender sprinkles; and the iconic Voodoo Doll doughnut, which is filled with raspberry jelly and topped with chocolate frosting and a pretzel stake.

Unique to the shop is a decorating counter where guests can watch as master decorators prepare the toppings and icing designs on fan-favorites like Oh Captain, My Captain, Memphis Mafia and Mango Tango.

In total, the shop offers more than 50 types of delightfully weird and sinfully delicious doughnuts. Of those, 13 are vegan offerings.

Guests will also enjoy the quirky Voodoo Doughnut venue, featuring art created by Portland locals and a gigantic doughnut throne exclusive to the location.

For those looking to make large purchases of these unique doughnuts, the company offers a Coffin of Doughnuts, which is a handmade wooden coffin filled with three dozen doughnuts.
