AUSTIN (KXAN) — A popular Oregon-based doughnut shop opened a second location in Austin on Friday at 8 a.m. This is the company’s 17th store.
Voodoo Doughnut set up the second Austin store at 5408 Burnet Rd., near Houston Street and Lawnmont Avenue.
“Voodoo’s Burnet Road store will celebrate the funkiness of decades past with delightful design nods including hand-painted art, teal-colored walls, giant disco ball, custom wallpaper, and a Spirit Channeler to celebrate its newest location,” the company said.
The chain’s first Austin location is on East Sixth Street in the downtown area.
The company originally expected the second Austin location to open in late 2022.
Voodoo said the new store would honor the rich history of Burnet Road. It also plans to hire 70 new employees from the area and pledges to provide “competitive wages, affordable health care and liberal PTO, in an environment where no name tag or uniform is required, letting the team be as unique as the doughnuts offered.”

“We are pumped to expand the brand and open a store on iconic Burnet Road in Austin,” Chris Schultz, Voodoo Doughnut CEO, said in a release. “Opening a second location to serve a community that has embraced the Voodoo brand throughout the years, is really what it’s all about for us,” Schultz continued.
The company, which was founded in Portland in 2003 and has since branched out to Denver, Houston, Hollywood and Orlando, said it has plans to open eight more stores in 2023.
