Duck Donuts® Welcomes Fall with Debut of New Seasonal Flavors

All Locations Introducing Not One, But Two Brand New Limited-Time Items

As the season begins to change, so do the limited-time flavors offered at Duck Donuts. Available through Nov. 25, the fastest-growing donut franchise in the United States known for serving Warm, Delicious and Made-to-Order! ® donuts is introducing two brand new toppings, chopped apple, and a streusel topping, which adds an extra layer of crunch to the vanilla cake donut. Duck Donuts is also bringing back fall’s most iconic flavor, pumpkin icing.

“Duck Donuts is continuously innovating and working towards providing its customers new and exciting flavors each season, especially ones that come highly requested by our customers, such as apple” said Russ DiGilio, founder and CEO of Duck Donuts Franchising Company. “We are ready to welcome fall and look forward to serving our loyal customers warm, delicious and made-to-order donuts!”

Duck Donuts fans are sure to love its new flavors down to the core. Made with real fruit, the apple topping has the consistency of apple pie filling with hints of cinnamon, while the pumpkin icing is creamy and sweet with a dash of spice. These new flavors also make for a great donut sundae!* In addition, our Fall assortment is perfect for family gatherings and office meetings, features fall-inspired combinations such vanilla icing, topping with chopped apple, streusel and caramel drizzle, maple icing with powdered and cinnamon sugar, and pumpkin icing with vanilla drizzle.

For coffee lovers, Duck Donuts will feature Rio Samba as its seasonal featured coffee brew.

The company is also launching its fall collection of espresso drinks, which will includes staples such as Pumpkin Spice Latte, Salted Caramel Macchiato, cappuccinos and unique beverages such as Caramel Apple Butter Latte and Maple Pancake Latte.*

Duck Donuts was founded in 2006 by Russ DiGilio in Duck, North Carolina. His intention? To solve 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.”

By 2011, Duck Donuts had expanded to four Outer Banks locations and the donut business was so successful that DiGilio was continuously approached about franchise opportunities by fans who begged for a Duck Donuts in their community. The first franchise opened in Williamsburg, Virginia, in 2013, and there are now 70 open franchise locations and more than 140 additional contracts in 24 states and two countries.
