SAN ANTONIO – Duck Donuts, a specialty donut joint new to the Alamo City, will open up shop on Saturday, serving up gourmet donuts that are made-to-order.
The popular East Coast donut chain is nestled in the Huebner Commons shopping center at 11703 Huebner Road.
The shop will open at 8 a.m. on Saturday and will stay open until 5 p.m.. The first customer will get a rubber duck, a mug, a shirt and a free dozen donuts and the 100th customer will get a free dozen of the delectable donuts.
Patrons' donuts are made-to-order -- all starting with a vanilla cake donut base. From there, customers can add a coating, a topping and a drizzle.
The coatings range from powdered sugar to blueberry; toppings include chopped peanuts and pieces of bacon -- then the donut is topped off with a "drizzle."
The Duck Donuts name originated in Duck, North Carolina. From there, the chain has grown to more than 50 locations in 22 states.
