Duck Donuts has officially landed in Thailand with its first store in Bangkok’s Siam Discovery, one of the city’s premier shopping destinations. Duck Donuts chief executive officer Betsy Hamm, founder Russ DiGilio and franchise partners The Great Restaurant Group Co. LTD commemorated the milestone opening on October 2.
“Bringing Duck Donuts to Bangkok is a momentous occasion for us,” Hamm says. “We’re excited to introduce our made-to-order donuts to the vibrant city of Bangkok and offer a delightful, customizable experience to the local community. We believe in the power of sweet moments, and we can’t wait to create memorable experiences for our guests in Thailand.”
“Bringing Duck Donuts to Bangkok is a dream realized. We're not just opening a store, we're creating a haven for donut lovers - a place where flavor meets customization,” says The Great Restaurant Group Co. LTD chief executive officer Joseph Kim Kim. “Our mission is to offer an experience that transcends the ordinary, where every bite is a celebration. With our wide array of flavors, we’re looking forward to embarking on this journey in our city.”
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 favorites 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 flavors and items such as Thai tea, matcha, pink milk, mango and salted-egg.
The Bangkok opening continues Duck Donuts’ international growth. The company 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.
