Coming Soon! It all began on the sandy beaches of the Outer Banks in Duck, North Carolina. There, Founder Russ DiGilio and his family would enjoy relaxing and fun vacations. But something was missing – there was no place to get that sweet staple of happiness – a warm, fresh donut! So, they decided to create their own which led to the first Duck Donuts opening in 2007. Now, you can enjoy the taste of the Outer Banks in your backyard by visiting one of our 100+ locations across the country! Our Mission To deliver smiles and warm, delicious and made-to-order donuts created just the way you like. Our Belief We are dedicated to delighting our guests by treating them like family and consistently providing a superior product and exceptional customer service in an authentic manner.
