Brentwood's newest eatery, Duck Donuts, is gearing up for a grand opening at 101 Creekside Crossing, Ste. 1000, Brentwood, in the Marketplace at Maryland Farms shopping center.

Local owners and Brentwood residents Matt and Allison Davenport will open Middle Tennessee's first location April 17.

The couple said they decided to open the area's first Duck Donuts after visiting a location on the East Coast. The North Carolina-based bakery has more than 200 locations nationwide.

"[Matt] went to North Carolina and tried one and called me from the parking lot and said, 'This is the best doughnut I've ever had in my life,'" Allison Davenport said. "Fast forward a couple of years, and here we are."

Duck Donuts offers freshly made doughnuts with signature flavors such as s'mores, Maple Bacon, Peanut Butter Paradise and Sunrise Lemon icing with raspberry drizzle. Customers can also create customized doughnuts and watch them be made to order.


"You come in; decide how many doughnuts you want; we drop them in the fryer and make them for you and top them while they're hot and send you off with them," she said.

Duck Donuts will also offer coffee drinks, milkshakes, breakfast sandwiches and sundaes. The shop will also participate in the company's Quack Back program, which will donate a portion of the shop's grand opening proceeds to benefit Brentwood-based Happy Retales Pet Supply and More. www.duckdonuts.com
