House of Donuts to open doughnut factory next door

Serving Lakewood since 1959.

Doughnuts are serious.

Those soft, fluffy morsels of sweet, sticky and gooey goodness transforms the average person into the possessed, with the spittle flowing from the corners of their mouths and with a glint in their eyes that will stop at nothing to savor and devour.

Bring doughnuts to the office and watch your co-workers get their little grubby fingers all over that action in 10 seconds flat. Watch the poor soul who is late to the massacre and gets the dregs, which they eat with wild abandon anyway. Drop a fresh and delicious doughnut on the floor covered with a whole host of diseases and you will happily retrieve it, brush it off and happily consume it, regardless.

So imagine our delight when we learned that the historic and iconic House of Donuts in Lakewood was expanding its operations. We were on it faster than you can say "doughnut factory." This doughnut staple since 1959, with its drive-thru, kitschy coolness factor and the most glorious, made from scratch daily, orbs, circles and squares of doughy sweetness in the universe, is expanding into the former Movies To Go space next door. As the infamous DONUTS sign of yesteryear gleams in the spring sunshine, owner Tom Peterson and House of Donuts team aren't talking (yet); they are feverishly whipping up the new digs to absolute perfection over the coming weeks, just like their doughnuts.

And you know what that means? MORE, MORE and MORE.

House of Donuts, originally owned and operated by the Cheatham family for more than 50 years, started the doughnut greatness; I mean we are talking secret recipes, passed down secrets and know how. In past reports, the new owner wishes to honor the stuff of lore and love, with a modern touch. Serious business, this is, yes?

Stay tuned.

House of Donuts is at 9638 Gravelly Lake Dr. SW. Check out pics (hellah yeah!) on their website or Facebook page.
