Business partners Michael Solomonov (a James Beard Award-winning chef) and Steve Cook will open the new location in Miami’s Wynwood neighborhood, a revitalized area of shopping, dining, and more. The neighborhood is also known for its artists, which drew Federal Donuts to it.
“We’ve been feeding off the creative energy of artists since day one, as we’ve been feeding them fried chicken and doughnuts. It’s in our DNA, so it made perfect sense to open our first shop here,” says Federal Donuts managing partner Tom Henneman.
The new location will serve the classic fried treats that customers have come to love, along with Panther Coffee’s Finca La Amistad blend (both hot and cold brew).
The shop’s “Hot Fresh” selection of donuts includes strawberry lavender, cinnamon brown sugar, and cookies 'n' cream flavors. Those donuts sell for 1.75 per donut, $7.50 for a half dozen, and $13 for a dozen. The “Fancy” flavors include guava poppy, strawberry shortcake, lemon meringue, black & white, chocolate eclair, and blueberry mascarpone. “Fancy” donuts sell for $2.75 per donut, $13 for a half dozen, and $24 for a dozen.
On September 26, Federal Donuts is scheduled to release a new cookbook that will offer a biographical look at how it turned passion into a mini empire, as well as feature recipes for all of the shop’s popular cake donuts and fried chicken.
