Sweet treats: New Lincoln Doughnotts shop opens this weekend

The wait for sweet delicious treats is almost over as a new doughnut shop prepares to open in Lincoln’s Cornhill Quarter on Saturday.

Doughnotts will open in the former Wakefield Army Stores and Thornton’s shop next to Lush at 9am on Saturday, November 30. There will be a ribbon cutting from the Right Worshipful Mayor of Lincoln, Councillor Sue Burke, and her consort, Councillor Chris Burke.

The flavours available will change on a weekly or daily basis. The Avocadough Doughnuts and fan’s favourites, including the Ferrero Rocher, Terry’s Choc Orange, Cherry Bakewell and Biscoff, will be among the doughnuts available for the opening weekend. They also have vegan options.

Doughnotts said the new store has created seven jobs, which are a mixture of full-time and part-time. The store also plans to hold doughnut making classes upstairs in the future.

Doughnotts in Lincoln will open 8.30am-6pm Monday to Saturday and 10am-4pm on Sundays.

The independent doughnut company was founded in Nottingham in 2015, offering a vast array of delicious treats.

It started off ‘in mum’s kitchen with a tenner and a wok’. Co-founders Megan Scaddan and Wade Smith then got themselves a micro-bakery and their own coffee and doughnut bar in Nottingham.

It has already been a hit in Lincoln with its pop-up stall and the new permanent shop is expected to be very popular.

Doughnotts already has stores in Nottingham, Leicester and Derby, with Lincoln the newest addition to the list.
