HOUSTON – Voodoo Doughnut is ready for business in Houston.

The Portland-based company has finally announced its grand opening date for the new location. In less than a week, Houstonians will be able to experience Voodoo Doughnut. The nontraditional doughnut shop will open on Wednesday, Jan. 15.

A ribbon-cutting will take place at 10 a.m. Guests at the grand opening can expect a Mariachi band and Wedding performed by Voodoo Doughnut founders Cap Daddy and Trace. The first 28 customers will receive a dozen free doughnuts.

Voodoo Doughnut offers a unique menu, including items topped with cereal, candy and bacon.

In March 2019, reps for the chain announced plans to open its first Houston location which was expected in the late summer.

“We are ecstatic to continue our expansion in Texas, adding to our existing location in Austin,” Voodoo Doughnut co-founder Kenneth Pogson said. “We look forward to contributing to the Houston community and eager to find amazing people that thrive in a fun, high energy environment to join the team."

According to Community Impact, the company held a job fair in December to fill 70 position at its first Houston-area location.

Houston will be home to the chain’s first location with a drive-thru, according to Houston Eater.

Houston’s Voodoo Doughnut is located at 3715 Washington Ave.
