The Donut Shop on ABC’s Marketplace is opening its doors in Melbourne.
The chain has been on the market for about two years and has been open in Sydney and Melbourne since last November.
The Donut is the brainchild of former Melbourne radio host and now ABC television presenter James Corden.
“I’m just trying to find a new way to spend my time and have a healthy, enjoyable life,” he said.
Mr Corden said the store was originally set up to promote the Donut brand, but was later taken over by a group of people who wanted to expand it.
“We had a lot of fun trying to get it to work, and now it’s finally opened,” he told ABC Radio Melbourne.
“There’s a little bit of a bit of an odd mix of people there, but it’s really good for a small, local, low-key shop like mine.”
The Donuts is something I’m really proud of.
“The store’s name is inspired by the Donuts Donut, which is a type of breakfast cereal that originated in Australia.
The new DonutShop on ABC Marketplace is a two-storey, four-storeys structure with seating for up to 200 people, according to ABC News.
Its first floor is home to the DonUT shop, which sells Donuts, coffee, milk, snacks and other merchandise.
A second floor, also home to a Donut store, offers a variety of snacks and beverages.
There are also two drive-through Donut outlets, a small Donut bar and a Donuts bakery.
The Donute is a unique and locally sourced breakfast brand.
When ABC Radio asked Mr Corden about the Donute’s name, he said it was a play on Donut and was a reference to the cereal’s unique name.”
That’s a really funny way to look at it.
I’m a bit old fashioned when it comes to that,” he joked.
