Doughnut Dollies’ ITP location will include a walk-up window

Second location to open on Howell Mill Road early next year

Popular Marietta doughnut shop Doughnut Dollies is slated to make its  ITP debut early next year.

The shop’s second location will open in January at 1963 Howell Mill Road. The new location will offer a selection of doughnuts as well as a small seating area and Athens’ Jittery Joe draft coffee options, as well as a walk-up window to pick up pre-ordered doughnuts.

Chris and Anna Gatti opened the original location in the downstairs space of their Canvas Cafe & Bakery in 2015.

The couple met while they were both in school at the Culinary Institute of America.

“Since opening Doughnut Dollies in 2015, Chris and I have had so much fun - we couldn’t be more excited to introduce Atlanta’s West Midtown to the delicious and ever-changing doughnuts we’ve become known for,” Gatti said in a press release.

We got a behind the scene look at how Doughnut Dollies in Marietta makes their doughnuts.

The doughnut shop is named for the Red Cross volunteers who delivered doughnuts and coffee to U.S. soldiers as far back as World War II

Doughnut Dollies is known for its eclectic selection of flavors and toppings including a chocolate Old Fashioned doughnut with fresh orange and fennel pollen and nectarine and rosemary, as well as a #YOLO “doughnut of the moment”. The shop also makes seasonal items such as holiday pie doughnuts, Christmas cake doughnuts and a Valentine’s Day box featuring doughnuts in an array of floral flavors.

An mural commissioned by Adam McNeil will be seen on the building’s exterior. Guests will be able to enjoy the 625-square-feet of cafe space including a dozen indoor seats and a walk-up window to pick up pre-ordered doughnuts.

Doughnut Dollies new location will be open from 7 a.m. until doughnuts run out daily.
