REJOICE! Shipley Do-Nuts Is Coming to Lubbock
If you're like me and have spent some serious time in the Dallas or Houston areas, then you know about the goodness that is Shipley Donuts!
The chain has confirmed that it will be opening two stores in Lubbock, with the option to open five more in the coming years.
The first one is set for 87th and University, while the second is set for 19th and West Loop 289.
According to Shipley, these will be the first stores west of I-35.
A bit of Shipley's History:
It was 1936, the end of the Great Depression, when Lawrence Shipley, Sr. created a gourmet recipe for Do-Nuts. So delicious were the Do-Nuts that they have withstood the test of time. Cut by hand and served hot throughout the day, the Do-Nuts were 5 cents a dozen and were only sold wholesale. The product was so successful that it started to sell on the retail market in the mid 1940s. With Lawrence Sr. away on do-nut routes, his wife Lillie would stay behind and make the culinary delights with Lawrence Jr. at her knee.
People would come from miles around to sample the nectar of the sumptuous hot glazed Do-Nuts. Serving them hot was a goal of the elder Shipley. Lawrence Shipley, Sr. once said, “When they bite into that hot do-nut, it will bring them back every time.”
