Donutchew, a mochi donut shop, is now open in the Rio Lakefront, taking over the location that was formerly home to Starbucks next to Fantasticks at 213 Boardwalk Place. To celebrate their grand opening, the donut shop is giving away free donuts with any purchase to the first 100 customers to visit the store on Tuesday, June 28.
The menu features donuts, coffee, fruit and milk teas, and croffles, a hybrid crossaint/waffle. The store is open from 10:3am-10pm during the soft opening.
Donutchew currently has locations in Fair Oaks Mall and the K-Market in Annandale with additional locations coming to Centreville, Fairfax City, Kingstowne, and Richmond in Virginia and an additional store in Georgia, according to the company’s website.
Starbucks closed permanently in September of 2020 and Fantasticks opened up next door last spring.
