HENRICO COUNTY, Va. – After 46 years in business, the elder of the Richmond doughnut world is sinking its teeth into a second store. Country Style Donuts has leased a 2,218-square-foot bakery-to-be at Gold’s Gym Plaza at West Tower at 8902 W. Broad St.
Nader Nassereddine, who will run the second location with brother-in-law Ramzi Rabah, said it will be a slightly modernized version of the East End institution.
“The donuts are going to be the same, nothing is going to change with that, but just the presentation will change some,” Nassereddine said. “The taste is the same, just a fresher look.”
The family-owned business will open the new store in the next three or four months, Nassereddine said. Country Style will add a new coffee and drink menu for the West End location and has touched up company logo.
The expansion is perhaps the biggest change for the doughnut shop’s brand since the Nassereddines bought the original Country Style at 4300 Williamsburg Road in 1984.
