Portland-based doughnut shop Voodoo Doughnut will open its second Houston and 11th national location this week in Montrose.

“We are super excited to open our second Houston location in Montrose, and have taken the opportunity to do a few things that make the shop really special,” Voodoo Doughnut CEO Chris Schultz said in a release. “From the one-of-a-kind doodle art mural to the New Orleans-inspired chandeliers and a special velvet painting created just for the neighborhood, you will see things not found in any other doughnut shop—it is a sight to see.”


The painting depicts Houston-native film director Wes Anderson with icons representing the neighborhood.

On March 31, the shop will open for 24/7 service at 1214 Westheimer Road, and a portion of first-day sales will be donated to The Montrose Center.

Voodoo is planning to open three more stores in 2021, which could include further expansion in the Houston market, according to a company spokesperson. www.voodoodoughnut.com
