Duck Donuts open in Thailand
The brand will bring its signature offerings, with plans to localise the menu.
US donut chain Duck Donuts has opened its first restaurant in Thailand.
The shop is located in Siam Discovery, one of the city's premier shopping destinations, promising a convenient and enjoyable experience for locals and tourists alike.
The brand’s franchise partner in Thailand is The Great Restaurant Group Co. LTD, led by CEO Joseph Kim, who has a strong background in hospitality management. In 2020, he launched K-strEAT, Thailand’s first Korean Food Hall comprised of 11 brands from Korea with over 10,000 sq. ft. of retail space.
In addition to donuts, the Bangkok location also serves coffee, espresso, donut sundaes, breakfast sandwiches, milkshakes, frozen beverages, select retail items and more. Guests will experience the same made-to-order donut process and availability of coatings, toppings and drizzles, including traditional favourites such as chocolate icing with sprinkles and more adventurous creations such as maple icing with bacon.
At a later date, the shop will expand its menu to include local flavours and items such as Thai tea, matcha, pink milk, mango and salted egg.
Duck Donuts opened its first locations in 2007 in the beach resort towns of Duck and Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. It also has international locations in Burlington, Ontario in Canada; Cairo, Egypt; Doha, Qatar; and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, with additional locations expected to open in 2024 in Pakistan, Curacao and Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
