ORLANDO, Fla – Donut lovers rejoice! Central Florida is adding an all-new donut shop that is worth checking out.

The Miami-based Salty Donut shop has opened its doors to foodies. The Orlando location will be the company’s fourth donut shop. It’s scheduled to open along Corrine Drive at an old car-and-auto servicing station in Orlando’s Audubon Park community.

“The Salty prides ourselves on integrating history from each community and the building structure that we move into, we’re going to be creating multiple garage doors that will be fully functional and can open up to create an indoor-outdoor seating area during the cooler seasons!”

To add some extra sweetness to the grand opening, the shop has launched a lottery system to give people the chance to win a free box of 10 donuts.

To add to the excitement, officials will be giving away free-limited edition Salty Donut and Lost Bros tote bags and stickers to the first 50 guests each day of the opening weekend.
