ORLANDO, FL (May 2, 2018): Voodoo Doughnut is proud and excited to announce that our seventh location is officially open at the Universal Orlando Resort CityWalk!  This is the first Voodoo Doughnut location east of the Mississippi and the second location on Universal property.  

Voodoo Doughnut brought on Chris Schultz as their CEO in early January with intentions for world doughnut domination and continued growth of the brand.  Schultz has over 30 years of restaurant industry experience, most recently with MOD Pizza serving as the company’s Senior Vice President of Operations.

Voodoo Doughnut co-founder Tres Shannon explains, “We have had a very fruitful relationship with Universal, and we are super stoked to open on the east coast with the folks at Universal!  It has been awesome to work with their team and really step-up to a vision that we both had a hand in creating.”

Voodoo Doughnut enthusiasts on both coasts can rejoice at being able to simultaneously scarf our world-famous confections and lose their noodles on wild thrill rides!  Voodoo Doughnut co-founders, Cat Daddy and Tres, are proud to collaborate with the creative technicians at Universal and bring Florida this shared-visionary doughnut palace!

VOODOO DOUGHNUT is the confectionary iconoclast and foodie-culture provocateur doughnut shop that conjured unforgettable classics like the Bacon Maple Bar, The Memphis Mafia, and the Portland Crème.  Founded in 2003 by Cat Daddy & Tres, Voodoo Doughnut is home to an expanding cadre of weirdos, artists, musicians, and all-types.  These doughnuteers are essential to carrying out the company’s mission: making unforgettable and innovative treats, while creating essential jobs and a fun place to work.
