District Donuts opens in Towne Center
District Donuts opened its newest location this morning at 7415 Corporate Blvd. in Towne Center. The New Orleans-based doughnut store chain took over Starbucks’ former location in the shopping center.
Formally known as District.Donuts.Sliders.Brew, Baton Rouge’s newest doughnut shop will operate with limited hours today, closing at 6 p.m.
A photo posted to the doughnut shop’s Instagram page shows employees holding a sign that says, “Good luck Baton Rouge.”
Sandwich chain Jersey Mike’s also is slated to open at Towne Center in June, according to city-parish data.
District Donuts announced in November that it was expanding to Baton Rouge. The doughnut shop was ranked No. 10 on Time Out magazine’s 2016 ranking of the 16 Best Donut Shops in America.
