Sugar Shack Donuts & Coffee
December 1, 2015 – The past several years have been witness to the donut revolution, as creative minds have transformed this classic pastry into a canvas for all things delicious. In 2013, Ian Kelley, Sugar Shack Donuts Founder and CEO, helped facilitate this revolution by opening his very own donut shop in Richmond, Virginia. It was here that Ian’s delectable, handmade treats began to make their mark. A recent designation by USA Today as one of “The tastiest donut shops in the USA” and four additional Virginia locations later, Sugar Shack Donuts welcomes its first location outside of the state of Virginia in Cocoa’s very own downtown Historic Cocoa Village.
Cocoa Village was the obvious choice to start out this multi-state expansion, as both Ian and Aaron Reninger, co-owner and Cocoa location manager, have deep roots in the area. Not only did Cocoa Village remind Sugar Shack partners of the business’s first location, but their attachment to the area compelled them to invest in a city so close to their hearts. Renovation of the Cocoa storefront required the construction team to take the structure down to the bare bones. Today, Sugar Shack Donuts is in remarkable condition after the restoration of the original brick work that lines the interior of the building. Sugar Shack Donuts brings a whole new life and a friendly staff of smiling faces to this previously neglected structure.
Sugar Shack Donuts is not finished winning over the taste buds of the people just yet, not even close. Featuring flavors such as blueberry cake, key lime pie, bananas foster and the ever elusive espresso glazed, these donuts are not made to be kept secret. In the coming months, Sugar Shack partners will be opening locations in downtown Melbourne and Asheville, North Carolina, with plans to open locations in Orlando and beyond.
Don’t forget about the coffee!
Sugar Shack Donuts offers more than delectable donuts! Each location is home to a custom made espresso machine imported from Italy, which takes roughly a year to design and manufacture. Aside from the ever-increasing popularity of the coffee among locals, the craftsmanship of the machine, alone, is reason enough to try a cup.
For a comprehensive list of donut flavors and coffee options, visit Sugar Shack Donuts at 307 Delannoy Avenue in Cocoa Village, across from Travis Hardware.
