Edgy Portland doughnut chain opens fourth Houston-area location in Katy with drive-thru, murals, and wicked treats
A cult favorite doughnut chain continues to cast its spell on Houston. Portland-based Voodoo Doughnut opened its new Katy shop early Monday, November 28.
Located in a former dry cleaner at 1301 N Fry Road, the new Voodoo features hand-painted murals, a see-through production kitchen, and the shop’s signature spinning display cases, according to a release. Its drive-thru will be open 24 hours a day.
Voodoo Doughnut has earned wide acclaim for its creative doughnuts such as the signature Voodoo Doll with raspberry jelly filling and the Diablos Rex with a vanilla frost pentagram. Other favorites include the Bacon Maple Bar, the Marshall Mathers (topped with M&M’s, naturally), and The Homer, which is topped with pink frosting and sprinkles.
The company has been on a growth spurt. It opened a Cypress location in April and will add a second Austin location later this year. Overall, Katy is the fourth Houston-area location joining shops in Montrose and on Washington Avenue.
When Voodoo announced the new location this summer, it said it expected to hire 75 employees to maintain its 24-hour operations. Perks include healthcare and paid time off as well as not having to wear a name tag or uniform.
“What makes this store opening in Katy the most exciting is the ability to hire so many folks to join the Voodoo Team right here from the local community,” Voodoo CEO Chris Schultz said in a statement.
