No matter how you prefer to spell it (donut or doughnut), the National Doughnut Day for 2020 falls on Friday, June 5th in the United States. The holiday is celebrated on the 1st Friday of June each year, but what should you expect to enjoy on this sweet-sounding day?
There are a handful of doughnut shops that are large enough to have multiple restaurants open in many different parts of the country. These restaurants, including Krispy Kreme and Dunkin’ Donuts, will generally offer a free doughnut for the occasion. Some places require enrollment in their rewards program, opt-in to an e-newsletter subscription, or an app download in order to access their offers.
Smaller, local doughnut shops may or may not have big promotions offered on National Doughnut Day, but these gems like Voodoo Doughnuts (Portland, OR), Sublime Doughnuts (Atlanta, GA), and Cafe Du Monde (New Orleans, LA) offer unique doughnuts that are worth the trip even without a special offer.
