US-born Duck Donuts opens its first international location in Dubai

US-based franchise Duck Donuts has officially opened its first international location in Dubai.

The opening represents international expansion for the company. Owned by Mohammed Albaqami, the store is located in Dubai Marina. 

“This is a project my team and I have been working on for over a year, and despite all the challenges we have faced as a result of COVID-19, I’m beyond excited to introduce the UAE to the Duck Donuts’ made-to-order concept,” says Albaqami.

“Pairing fresh and delicious donuts with the unique experience of customising and watching your donut being made from scratch to finish, is the perfect combination of food and fun for all ages. I am very happy to be bringing the brand 7,000 miles from its origins to offer the UAE a taste of the Outer Banks of North Carolina.”

In addition to donuts, the Dubai location also serves coffee, espresso, donut sundaes, unique OBX Donut Breakfast Sandwich, milkshakes, frozen beverages, select retail items and more.

The Duck Donuts Dubai location is the first store for Gold Peak Coffee Shop LLC. Customers can create their own donut combination by choosing from a variety of coatings, toppings and drizzles, including chocolate icing with sprinkles and more creations such as maple icing with turkey bacon.
