The Donut Monster brand offers donuts made from scratch and has been operating for three years online -- now the brand is expanding by seeking to open its own retail space.
The retail space will be located in downtown Hamilton, and will run every day, for seven day a week. Much like traditional desserts shops, but offering donuts instead of ice cream or baked goods, the store will offer a range of new and unique donut flavors each week.
Some of the donuts the brand is known for, and will be offering in its new store, include the Roasted Sweet Potato Fritter, the Baklava donut, the Yogurt and Honeycomb donut, and the Double Almond donut. The Donut Monster also sources its ingredients locally, ensuring that it supports small businesses such as itself.
