Celebrate National Donut Day at These Five Charlotte Bakeries

It’s National Donut Day and even though it’s not  a day I usually keep on my radar, I have a feeling its one I’ll start to look forward to each year with the growing number of gourmet donut shops in Charlotte.

I’ll admit, I’m more likely to get my sugar fix from a cupcake, but there’s just something different about a donut. I’m sure my fellow Charlotteans agree. That’s why shops across the city are celebrating with deals. Kick your weekend off with a sweet treat from one of these local participating stores:

Suarez Bakery – Buy one donut, get one free (max. six free donuts per customer).

Duck Donuts – Receive a free classic donut, as well as a buy one, get one free donut coupon (redeemable before June 17, 2018) – no purchase necessary!

Rise – All Rise locations will be donating 100% of sales of the Chocolate Icing Donut all day to a local food bank. The Charlotte (Steele Creek) location donate profits to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina.

Dunkin Donuts – Get a free classic donut of your choice with the purchase of any beverage.

Krispy Kreme – Fans can enjoy any doughnut of their choice, no purchase necessary, all day long.

Bean and I went to Krispy Kreme before school this morning. I bet that smile will still be on his face when I pick him up this afternoon!
