HENRICO COUNTY, Va. – Duck Donuts announced it is coming to Richmond. The favorite stop for Outer Banks vacationers said it planned to open a location at The Shops at Willow Lawn this fall.

“We chose to bring Duck Donuts to the Richmond market because of the interest that’s been expressed by our consumers on social media and through our website,” Duck Donuts Richmond franchisee owner Keith Exton said in a statement. “Willow Lawn stood out as a great location for our first store due to the proximity of the shopping center to downtown Richmond as well as the West End.”

Exton said he also liked the parking situation at Willow Lawn.

Duck Donuts enters a crowded Richmond donut market with the recent expansions of local shops like Sugar Shack and Dixie Donuts, plus other local favorites Mrs. Yoder’s and Country Style donuts and established national chains Dunkin’ Donuts and Kripsy Kreme.

  • Country Style Doughnuts or nothing at all !

    Country Style Doughnuts hands down is the best. I love the small business owner commitment to their customers, you don’t find that at big company or franchised locations. You walk into Country Style Doughnuts and your welcomed with a warm hello from the owners or a family member. I’ve posted here before about the local doughnut shops and truly enjoyed seeing the support for the little guys like CSD. We take the drive from the west end over there about twice a month just to get their treats, love the old fashions doughnuts the best. I could praise Country Style Doughtnuts all day but if you don’t believe me look at thier reviews at, google, yelp, urbanspoon and others their clearly rated higher than all the rest. If you can’t tell I really support local small business owners and have a love for tasty doughnuts and it’s nice when they both come together at one place like CSD.
