Shipley's Do-Nuts


Shipley's Do-Nuts is expanding into the area.  According to the Austin Business Journal, Shipley's Do-Nuts has signed deals for 61 locations across Texas, with one of those locations being in Amarillo. Other Texas cities slated for new stores include Lubbock, El Paso, Austin, Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth, and San Antonio.

Shipley's Do-Nuts was founded in Houston in 1936 after Lawrence Shipley Sr. created his famous recipe, handmade and cut his donuts and sold them for .05 cents per dozen.  The original bakery was located at 1417 Crockett Street in Houston, Texas

Shipley's has over 60 varieties of donuts, and the glazed is the most popular.  However, they currently have Oreo cookies and cream donuts.    Between the glazed, cake, sprinkled, filled, rolls, and even twists you will find your favorite and then some.  Of course, you'll be able to get a delicious Shipley's coffee to go with your donut.  They also have kolaches and beignets.

The business has now expanded to over 300 stores across multiple states in the Southern US.
