The first Voodoo Doughnut in Houston is a smash hit, busy much of the day with car lines at the drive-thru and pedestrian lines at the front door.
So maybe the addition of a second Voodoo in Houston will help alleviate those lines. Voodoo is planning to open a Montrose location at 1214 Westheimer Rd.
Eater first reported the move and a Voodoo Doughnut representative confirmed the details to Houstonia.
"We are grateful for the enthusiastic response from customers and fans at our Washington shop that opened in January," says Audrey Lincoff, head of communications at Voodoo Doughnut. "We lo0k forward to hiring 70-plus employees at our second location in Montrose, which we hope to open by the end of the year."
Voodoo, which originated in Portland, Oregon, is known for its creative designs, often pushing the envelop with themes. Their yeasty treats like the Bacon Maple Bar; Oh Captain, My Captain (vanilla frosting and Cap'n Crunch pieces); and Voodoo Doll (raspberry filled doughnut shaped like a frightened little man) tend to be sweeter than most doughnuts you'll find in Houston, but the creativity puts them over the top.
