NEW: Duck Donuts to open shop in Vienna

Duck Donuts is wading into the Town of Vienna.

A spokesperson for the North Carolina-based donut chain confirmed it will open a new franchise at 256 Maple Avenue East, filling a space vacated by T-Mobile. The shop will join Smoothie King, MetroEyes and Sweet Leaf Cafe in the retail building.

“We are in the early stages of permitting to begin moving forward with construction, and unfortunately, at this time, do not have an expected opening timeframe to share,” the Duck Donuts spokesperson told FFXnow.

The company says it’s “excited to continue” expanding into Virginia with the Vienna location, which is owned by first-time franchisee Matthew Yiengst. This will be the first new Duck Donuts since a Springfield shop opened at Old Keene Mill Shopping Center in October 2022.

Shops can also be found in Herndon and Fairfax City.

Deriving its name from its original location of Duck, North Carolina, Duck Donuts was founded in 2007 by Russ DiGilio, who saw a lack of donut options in the Outer Banks while vacationing there with his family. Since then, the business has grown to more than 100 locations, including ones in Egypt, Qatar and Thailand.

The menu offers both prepared and made-to-order donuts that can be customized with various coatings and toppings. Shops also sell breakfast sandwiches, ice cream and coffee.
