We told you about the news a few days ago, now it’s official! Voodoo Doughnut is coming to Universal Hollywood’s CityWalk! Voodoo Doughnut, which originated in Portland, Oregon, has expanded to multiple U.S. cities in Eugene, OR; Denver, CO; Austin, TX, as well as overseas in Taipei City, Taiwan. The fall opening marks their first California establishment. Created by Kenneth “Cat Daddy” Pogson and Tres Shannon, Voodoo Doughnut is recognized worldwide by consumers and the media alike for their eccentric, palate-pleasing pastry creations.
“We are beyond thrilled to open Voodoo Doughnut at Universal CityWalk and share our menu of fabulous, unconventional doughnuts with the world at the top entertainment destination in Los Angeles,” said Voodoo Doughnut owner, Kenneth “Cat Daddy” Pogson. “Our signature and one-of-a-kind doughnuts are the perfect complement to CityWalk’s over-the-top vibrancy.”
“We couldn’t be more excited to welcome Voodoo Doughnut to Universal CityWalk as we begin to phase in the next evolution of our dynamic CityWalk entertainment complex,” said Morell Marean, Senior Vice President, Food and Restaurant Operations, Universal Studios Hollywood. “The arrival of Voodoo Doughnut to Los Angeles coincides with Universal Studios Hollywood’s successful opening of ‘The Wizarding World of Harry Potter,’ and we take pride in entertaining guests with everything that’s exceptional, from attractions to doughnuts.”
The new Voodoo Doughnut shop will find its sweet spot at the inimitable Universal CityWalk, located near the “5 Towers” outdoor concert stage and adjacent to the Universal Cinemas, currently under renovation and also slated to debut this fall.
