DEERFIELD TWP — Duck Donuts is opening its fourth Ohio location this April at 5635 Deerfield Blvd. in Deerfield Twp.’s Deerfield Towne Center.
The franchise specializes in warm, made-to-order doughnuts. Customers may choose from a variety of topping combinations, including traditional flavors such as vanilla icing with sprinkles and more adventurous creations such as maple icing with bacon.
Here are five things to know about the soon-to-open doughnut destination.
1. It offers step-by-step culinary creativity
Duck Donuts experiences start with a signature vanilla cake doughnut. Customers then choose to coat it with options like cinnamon sugar, powdered sugar, glazed, icing or bare and then top it with sprinkles, graham cracker, peanuts, shredded coconut, Oreo crumbles and more.
Finally, customers drizzle their creation with hot fudge, marshmallow, salted caramel, raspberry or blackberry. If you don’t want to customize it yourself, they offer pre-created flavor combos aimed at simplifying the ordering process.
Duck Donut stores feature a viewing area where customers can watch their sweet treats being made.
2. It offers more than just doughnuts
Hungering for more than just a doughnut? Duck Donuts also offers doughnut sundaes featuring a warm doughnut with your choice of coating, topped with a scoop of Breyers Ice Cream and finished with a flavored drizzle.
There’s also breakfast sandwiches, like the OBX Donut Breakfast Sandwich, which allows customers to add egg, cheese, sausage or bacon, and then envelop it between a sliced doughnut. Those looking to dine on an extra-indulgent option may cap off the entire creation off with some glaze and bacon crumbles.
Duck Donuts also serves signature coffee blends Riptide Roast, Light House Blend and Sunset Pier Decaf, with new special seasonal flavors changing throughout the year.
3. The “Duck” in its name is a reference to where it was founded
Duck Donuts was founded in 2006 by Russ DiGilio in the northern Outer Banks seaside town of Duck, N.C. in an attempt to solve a family vacation problem, according to the company.
“Our family wanted a place to buy warm, delicious, made-to-order doughnuts, and when we couldn’t find one, we decided to start our own,” DiGilio said in a release.
4. It continues to expand
DiGilio was continuously approached about franchise opportunities by fans who asked for a Duck Donuts in their community. The first franchise opened in Williamsburg, Va., in 2013. There are now 58 open franchise locations and more than 130 additional contracts in 23 states.
This is the fourth Ohio location for Duck Donuts, following locations in Westerville, Dublin and Dayton.

Duck Donuts touts its partnership with Gabe’s Chemo Duck Program, a non-profit organization that aims to provide education, comfort and hope through stuffed ducks, medical play and therapeutic tools.
