Duck Donuts Splashes Into Summer


The summer continues to burst with flavor, as Duck Donuts, known for serving warm, delicious and made-to-order donuts is reintroducing orange icing and bringing back its popular Southern Pecan iced coffee, available now through Sept. 9.

“We’re here to keep customers cool by offering refreshing new flavors and iced coffee during the hot summer months,” said Russ DiGilio, founder and CEO of Duck Donuts Franchising Company.

Duck Donuts was founded in 2006 by DiGilio in Duck, NC when he needed a solution to a family vacation problem.

“Our family wanted a place to buy warm, delicious, made-to-order donuts, and when we couldn’t find one, we decided to start our own,” he said, noting that by 2011, Duck Donuts had expanded to four Outer Banks locations. The donut business was so successful that DiGilio was continuously approached about franchise opportunities by fans. The first franchise opened in Williamsburg, VA, in 2013, and now there are 67 franchise locations and more than 130 additional contracts in 23 states and two countries.

Duck Donuts’ main squeeze this summer is orange icing. Made with real fruit, the light, refreshing flavor is available for a limited time only and is recommended to pair with vanilla icing or shredded coconut. In addition, a summer assortment, perfect for pool parties, office meetings or to enjoy on summer vacations, features orange icing and fruity combinations such as blueberry with lemon, strawberry with rainbow sprinkles and favorites including maple bacon and glaze.

A returning favorite, Duck Donuts will feature Southern Pecan as its seasonal summer iced coffee flavor. This medium roast coffee has a toasted, nutty, soft buttery flavor, making it as rich and decadent as the perfect southern pecan pie. For espresso lovers, seasonal options including S’mores Latte, Blueberry Latte, Coconut Mocha, Caramel Macchiato and Honey Latte will also be available at participating locations in hot or iced.
