Since the elusive Donut Experiment Cocoa Beach popped up on Facebook, Brevard County has been all eyes for what’s to come.
When: It’s anticipated to open mid-March of this year. The Donut Experiment will be open from 7am – 1pm daily.
Where: 218 W Cocoa Beach Causeway
What: A build-your-own donut shop where you pick the toppings and icing for the sweet treat of your dreams.
The Donut Experiment originated in Anna Maria Island, FL. A couple from the Philadelphia area would vacation on the island but there were no donut shops.
They sold their belongings and moved to Florida to open a shop of their own. It was an interactive experience that invited customers to create their dream donut. People loved it. The Donut Experiment franchise was born.
At this shop, donuts are made at nearly the same time they’re ordered so they are always hot and fresh. Customers add the toppings they want and walk away with their dream donut.
Enter Donna Leuck, a retired law enforcement officer of 25 years: “I know a little bit about donuts,” she said. Donna has been a Cocoa Beach resident since 2015. She is opening The Donut Experiment in Cocoa Beach with her 15-year old son Levi. She brought him on as her business partner to teach him the ins-and-outs of entrepreneurship.
The Donut Experiment’s will offer discounts to active military, police, and cruise ship personnel.
