Union Square Donuts opened at Kitchen Inc. (201 Somerville Ave.) a mere two months ago and in that time, it’s become a runaway success. The high demand for the fresh baked goods led doughnut duo Josh Danoff, who owns Culinary Cruisers with his siblings Noah and Leah, and Heather Schmidt, who owns City Chicks/Homemade Modern, to find a new, more permanent home.
Union Square Donuts will now operate out of 16 Bow St., according to Danoff, allowing it to stay true to its neighborhood roots. The space is also home to Cafe Tango, so the location will be Union Square Donuts by day and Cafe Tango by night.
Donut lovers from all over the region flocked to the original Union Square Donuts location to sample the unique flavors, like maple bacon and chocolate chipotle. Lines of hungry customers stretched down the block before the shop opened and the doughnuts were almost always sold out very early in the day.
The new space and some new equipment purchases, like a giant 60-quart Hobart mixer, will allow Union Square Donuts to expand while maintaining the high quality customers have come to know and love.
As for when you can get your hands on a Union Square Donut, Danoff said that there will be a grand re-opening in a few weeks once the kitchen has been fully prepped and all the permits secured.
Union Square Donuts was only conceived six months ago, but it’s clear that the business has already found some very sweet success.
