About Us

Duck Donuts has had tremendous success and built a great following over the last 10 years on the Outer Banks of North Carolina with our “Warm, Delicious & Made-to-Order” concept. We are very thankful and excited to now be able to offer others the opportunity to take our Duck Donuts concept into other parts of the country.

Duck Donuts first opened in Duck and Kitty Hawk, NC on the Outer Banks. What started as a fun concept has now turned into a world known, award-winning brand with a product that gets everyone excited.

Our first franchise location was in Williamsburg, VA in 2013. We now have over 100 locations open with over 140 contracts to open.

To date, our growth has been organic. Our locations open in markets that ask for us.
