Brand new Glazed Donut Works is closed temporarily after high demand
It will triple its staff and reopen Friday, August 23.
DEEP ELLUM Deep Ellum’s new doughnut shop, Glazed Donut Works, will be closed this week to train more staff and up its production volume, the company announced in a press release Monday.
The store received overwhelming response from consumers during its first weekend of operation, selling out on opening day, August 16, in 90 minutes. Glazed Donut Works co-owner Darren Cameron promises to open at 7 a.m. Friday, August 23 and resume normal business hours thereafter.
“Making donuts the way we do is extremely labor intensive, and making everything from scratch is not a fast process,” said Cameron in the press release. “What we will not do is sacrifice quality for quantity, conversely we also want you our customers to have access to our product for longer than 90 minutes.”
Glazed Donut Works will triple its staff, according to the release. On opening day, the shop served more than 500 doughnuts to hungry patrons. The following day, it upped its volume to 750 and still sold out before the shop closed.
Glazed Donut Works is an artisan doughnut shop that serves creative, if sometimes wacky, concoctions like the Elvis Killer (bacon, banana, and honey) and the Blind Lemoncello (lemon custard and sugar). All the confections are made from scratch. Cameron previously told Pegasus News that the majority of its original recipes come from trial and error.
The shop also acquired a bright pink short school bus for catering events. It will begin rolling around town after Glazed is established.
