Duck Donuts, known for serving Warm, Delicious and Made To Order! donuts, recently announced the grand opening of its first shop in the Idaho Falls area, the second franchise location in Idaho, is set for Saturday, May 1, at 8 a.m. Locally owned by Bonnie and Wyatt Wetsel, the store is located at 2675 Sunnyside Road in Ammon, in the Hillcrest Plaza next to Hillcrest High School.

The first guest in line on Saturday, May 1 will receive a free Duck Donuts gift basket and a free dozen donuts every month for a year. There will be a drawing for a second customer to win monthly donuts as well as more door prizes and merchandise giveaways.

Bonnie and Wyatt Wetsel have lived in the Idaho Falls area for nearly 15 years. They own 5 Star Truck and Auto car dealership. The Wetsels have five children and recently became grandparents.

“We first tried Duck Donuts while visiting family in Utah,” says Bonnie Wetsel. “We had to cut each one into quarters so we could try every flavor! There is something nostalgic about biting into a warm donut. We’re so excited to bring this family-friendly store, unique made-to-order experience and these amazing donuts to Ammon.”

The 1,200 square-foot retail store reflects the franchise’s iconic beach theme and family-friendly atmosphere. In addition to donuts, the Ammon location serves Duck Donuts’ signature coffee blends—Riptide Roast, Light House Blend, and Sunset Pier Decaf—espresso, donut breakfast sandwiches, donut sundaes, new menu items including frozen beverages and milkshakes, select retail items, and more. The owners are also proud to feature  ice cream from Idaho Falls favorite Reed’s Dairy.

The store will offer indoor seating and, coming soon, outdoor seating as the weather allows. Curbside pickup is available by calling the store.

Duck Donuts specializes in warm, delicious and made-to-order donuts. Upon entering the store, customers are welcomed with the aroma of warm, light vanilla cake donuts. Customers can create their own donut combination by choosing from a variety of coatings, toppings, and drizzles, including traditional favorites such as chocolate icing with sprinkles and more adventurous creations such as maple icing with bacon. The family-friendly stores offer a viewing area where children and adults alike can watch their donuts being made.

Duck Donuts and this store’s owners are committed to customer and employee safety as Idaho recovers from COVID-19. Employees will wear face masks. High-touch surfaces will be frequently sanitized and the store will remain in compliance with all state and federal guidelines. Plexiglass shields have been installed.
