District Doughnut announced today the official opening of their first storefront location on Barracks Row, scheduled for Friday, September 12. Yay! The specialty doughnut shop is located at 749 8th St SE, across the street from the iconic Marine Barracks of Washington. I just love their doughnuts!
Founded in 2012, District Doughnut has already built a following by hand-delivering to private customers and serving at a wide variety of public and private events throughout the District. The company honed its pastry craft at Union Kitchen, DC’s leading incubator for food entrepreneurs, in preparation for their storefront launch.
District Doughnut will debut serving a rotating selection of doughnut varieties along with small-batch coffee blends from Compass Coffee. Founded by DC-area natives Michael Haft and Harrison Suarez, both former Marine Corps officers, Compass Coffee imports beans from around the world and roasts them onsite in their new cafe and roastery in DC’s Shaw neighborhood.
District Doughnut will open Friday, September 12, through Sunday, September 14, from 8AM until selling out. Saturday and Sunday will feature grand opening festivities including music, games, and more.
For the remainder of September, the shop will be open Wednesday through Sunday, serving a select variety of doughnuts, coffee, and other beverages. The company will announce the weekly and monthly product rotations on their Twitter and Facebook pages.
