Construction is wrapping up at a new donut shop (with a strong following) named Duck Donuts, coming to Dilworth next to Dolce in Kenilworth Commons. I spoke with owner Scott Plassman, and he told me the business is targeting Monday, September 14 for their opening, contingent on permitting and construction.
Duck Donuts Facts
- Hours: 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., Wednesday-Saturday and 6 a.m. to 3 p.m., Sunday-Tuesday.
- Owner Scott Plassman is originally from Ohio (spent 30 years there as a business exec), but he told me, “I should have moved to Charlotte much earlier. I love it here.” Scott is looking to open multiple stores in the Charlotte area.
- Scott is considering a “Panther Donut” that could include blueberry frosting and more. Love it.
- Maple Bacon is their best selling donut, even though it sounds crazy to me. Another top seller is their French Toast donut.
