But do not worry ! The first Filipino branch of the iconic Los Angeles donut chain is just shutting down and will reopen soon.
Manila, Philippines – Sorry, fans of Randy – America’s recently opened donut chain at Uptown Parade, Bonifacio Global City, will suspend operations in the meantime, three weeks after its soft opening on May 10.
Ever since LA’s iconic donut shop landed in Metro Manila, the public has wasted no time in satisfying their cravings. Its first branch in the Philippines saw lines and lines of eager sweet tooths looking for their fix, and many even lined up for up to two to three hours just for a box of Randy’s airy, fluffy, chunky donuts. .
However, on Wednesday, May 25, Randy’s Donuts told Rappler that the team had to make the decision to take a break to “restock fresh ingredients from the United States to better serve their customers.” On Facebook, the brand said it was “running out of flour” and fresh batches were on their way from Los Angeles.
But don’t worry, they plan to reopen “as soon as possible” and will add more flavors to the existing menu in time for it to reopen. Customers can stay informed on the Randy’s Donuts Facebook page for any updates, as there is no confirmed date for its reopening yet.
On May 17, Randy’s informed the public that due to supply shortages, the store would be limiting purchases to two boxes of 12 donuts or four boxes of six donuts per person.
According to Randy’s Donuts, the BGC branch has already sold over 70,000 donuts since its soft opening, with an average of over 5,000 donuts sold per day. The official store opening is scheduled for June, as the branch is still working on an outdoor kiosk and the iconic signage seen at all Randy’s Donuts branches in the United States.
The Bistro Group announced in February that it would bring the world-famous donut brand to the Philippines on BGC’s 38th Street, next to Denny’s. The same fluffy homemade donuts served in America come in over 40 classic, premium and deluxe flavors, like the signature Classic Glazed Raised, S’mores, Fruit Loops Raised, Apple Fritter, Butter Crumb, Jelly Raspberry, Cake Sprinkles, and high maple with churros.
Randy’s Donuts, which was founded in 1952, has been spotted in several Hollywood films and series, such as Marvel’s iron man 2, where Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) was spotted in Randy’s donut hole. The store’s iconic exterior was also used in Arrested Development, Masked Rider, Entourage, The Golden Child, Get Shorty, Problem Child 2, Crocodile Dundee, The kissing boothand Runawaysamong other movies. – Rappler.com
