Duck Donuts Opens its Doors in King of Prussia
UPPER MERION >> Even before Duck Donuts took King of Prussia by storm last Saturday, folks were clamoring to succumb to the rounds of sticky, pillowy perfection the growing chain is famous for.
If they were lucky, some of the curious who poked their noses inside the shop at 201 Main St., across from City Works restaurant in King of Prussia Town Center, before opening day walked out with a sampling of doughnuts, courtesy of franchise owners Todd and Gayle Rindfuss.
“I hope you enjoy them and come back and see us,” Todd Rindfuss said to a pleasantly surprised gentleman whose impromptu visit he had generously sweetened with a dozen signature vanilla cake doughnuts topped with a variety of drizzles and sprinkles.
Duck Donuts founder Russ DiGilio had been on site all week helping to get the chain’s 46th store off the ground.
“We must have had 500 people coming around this week asking when we were going to open,” said DiGilio, who grew up in Rosemont and got the idea of launching a doughnut shop in the Outer Banks of North Carolina where he spent his summer vacations.
Not just any doughnut shop, but one where every confection is made to order and served up “fresh, hot and delicious,” DiGilio said.
