Yonutz, the acclaimed and unique donut, ice cream concept and two-time winner of "Dessert Wars," has rebranded and plans to grow across the country, with more than seven new franchise locations planned to debut in 2022 and up to 20 more on the way.
Following an energizing renovation at the Yonutz flagship location in Sunrise, FL, all existing storefronts and new franchise locations will reflect the revitalized and innovative space, which will feature the new Yonutz logo and signage, custom murals, Instagrammable neon signs, colorful countertops, and redesigned bar areas with additional seating.
"Our goal with this rebrand and franchising is to expand upon the fun and innovative Yonutz brand," said Tony Bahu, CEO, and Founder of Yonutz. "With our elaborate desserts, immersive ambiance, colorful packaging, and outstanding customer service, we will continue to provide a fantastical experience to dessert lovers everywhere and allow fans all over the United States to partake in the Yonutz experience."
The flagship store in Sunrise, FL, and the first franchise store in Las Vegas are the current sites of The Home of the SMASH Donut. With numerous franchise locations opening this year in Orem, UT; Sandy, UT; Boise, ID; Oklahoma City; Greenwood, CO; two locations in Houston; and many more burgeoning cities across the country, the fantastic donut concept has begun its invigorating journey to take America by storm.
Guests will be transported into a fantastical dessert world upon entering Yonutz, which includes an Instagrammable photo wall with a neon 'SMASH THE ORDINARY' sign. A bespoke, fantasyland-themed mural and a SMASH Donut wall will be featured in the eating areas, demonstrating how to build a one-of-a-kind SMASH Donut dessert. Customers will be able to choose from an infinite supply of gourmet donuts and sweets at the counters, and high-definition TV displays will display the spectacular SMASH items to tantalize their senses. Guests of all ages will have front-row seats to watch the talented team members produce over-the-top recipes that come to life, adding to the immersive experience. Yonutz fans may even bring a piece of their favorite dessert shop home with fashionable products and vivid packaging.
"By creating such an innovative and immersive experience, guests from all over the country will finally get to indulge in our one-of-a-kind products, like the SMASH Donut, that truly sets us apart," said Jennifer Bahu, COO, and Founder of Yonutz. "We are so thrilled to be able to share our excitement and fantastical desserts with new customers."
Yonutz's original and signature SMASH Donuts include the Nutella Crunch SMASH Donut, a fluffy donut stuffed with cookie dough ice cream, smashed and hot-pressed, and topped with Oreos, cereal crunch, and Nutella drizzle; the unique Miami SMASH Donut, stuffed with dulce de leche ice cream, Maria Cookies, white chocolate chips, and guava drizzle; and the Birthday Cake SMASH Milkshake, made with birthday cake ice cream, blended with a mini donut, birthday Oreos, and topped with another mini donut.
The sugar rush isn't over yet. There are also dozens of delicious little and large gourmet doughnut concoctions available, like apple pie, huge birthday, Boston cream, crunch berry bang deluxe, and peanut butter and jelly. Yonutz also offers a "hidden menu," which is only available to those who sign up for the Yonutz free VIP club online at yonutz.com.
