Da Vinci's Donuts is a nationally recognized doughnut company.

Da Vinci’s Donuts, the local doughnut company with several shops spread out across metro Atlanta’s Northside, has closed its Dunwoody location.

The shop at 5537 Chamblee Dunwoody Road, which opened in Dunwoody Village in 2016, served its last desserts on March 31, co-founder and co-owner Andy Rudd said.

It was the company’s first franchise location to open, and the first to close.

The franchise owner ran into some “unforeseen circumstances” earlier this year, eventually leading to the closure, Rudd said. He said he was “disappointed,” but thanked the patrons in Dunwoody.

“We love the Dunwoody community, and we would love to have the opportunity to come back,” he said.

Da Vinci's, known for its smaller, cake-style doughnuts and gourmet flavors, has four other locations in metro Atlanta. The closest one to Dunwoody is on Glenridge Drive in Sandy Springs.

Last year, Da Vinci's made Thrillist's list of the Best 31 Donut Shops in America.

Rudd said a Da Vinci’s in Dawsonville is opening in two or three weeks, and they have been scouting locations in Roswell.

Da Vinci’s first opened shop in Alpharetta in 2014.
