On a brisk Chicago morning, one breakfast item pairs perfectly with a steaming hot cup of coffee; it is a donut. Since Chicago is a culinary city, a boring boxed donut isn’t what the culinary astute crave. Chicagoans want freshly baked and delicious flavors in a donut. Everyone craves Firecakes Donuts.
Firecakes Donuts is celebrating the opening of its new Lincoln Park store location with a three-day donut lover’s celebration. What’s better than a delicious donut? A free delicious donut of course. During the three day celebration, Firecakes Donuts will give the first 100 customers at the new Clark Street location a free donut on Sunday, January 17 through Tuesday, January 19. No purchase is required to receive a free donut.
Created by Jonathan and Karen Fox, Firecakes Donuts Shops bring back the traditional donut shops from years ago. Made fresh throughout the day, Firecakes Donuts constantly has the aroma of baking donuts. Customers can see the freshly made donuts in the counter. Most importantly, the donuts ingredients are purchased from local sources.
“We strive to take something simple and make it special,” said Chef Jonathan. “We use the best traditional donut recipes and apply sophisticated techniques to produce layers of flavor that take our donuts to another level. For example, we don’t just roll our coconut donuts in shredded coconut. Rather, we roll them in three different kinds of coconut, each with a different texture, making the experience much more interesting and tasty.”
“The Firecakes team is very passionate about making donuts that are memorable and of high quality, that keep folks coming back for more,” said Jonathan. “Fortunately, we’ve succeeded in doing so, as represented by the opening of this great new store.”
Especially for the Lincoln Park opening, Firecakes is rolling out some special items just in time for the new Lincoln Park store opening, including Cinnamon Rolls, a Bigger Bacon Long John (maple cream filled with peppered candied bacon), and a Black & White donut. These special offerings are available at all locations.
Since Firecakes strives for delicious flavors with their fresh ingredients, the signature flavors include Honey Glazed, Maple Glazed Pineapple & Bacon, Butterscotch Praline, Coconut Cream, Honey Glazed, Chocolate Hazelnut Long John, Valrhona Chocolate Iced, Valrhona Chocolate & Espresso Cream, Triple Valrhona Chocolate Cake, Malted Milk Ball, Old Fashioned Buttermilk, Vanilla Iced, Classic Jelly, Peanut Butter Cup. Current seasonal selections are Chocolate Old Fashioned, Apple Cinnamon Fritter, Valrhona Chocolate Iced Old Fashioned, Sicilian Pistachio Old Fashioned, Peanut Butter & Jelly.
While the new Lincoln Park location is offering the 100 free donuts promotions, all the Firecakes locations are joining in the celebration. Both the River North location and the “Billy” Donut Truck will hold prize drawings, including complimentary donut dozens, limited edition Firecakes tee shirts and more. There will be one grand prize: a private catered party for up to 75 people, featuring the “Billy” Donut Truck. No purchase is necessary.
The new Firecakes Donuts is located at 2453. N. Clark. The other Firecakes location is at 68 W. Hubbard. The “Billy” Donut Truck travels around Chicago.
