National Doughnut Day is coinciding with Fun Friday this week, making it a very sweet (pun intended) edition this week (and, fun fact: June 7 is also National Chocolate Ice Cream Day, as you'll see in another news item below).

To start: Rich Products conducted a consumer survey that found that 56% of consumers purchase doughnuts at least once a month, and more than a third of consumers purchase the pastry multiple times per month. This demand is reflected in foodservice industry trends as well. Datassential found that inclusion of doughnuts on menus has grown 47% in the past 10 years, bolstered by an affinity for the sweet treat amongst a younger generation, families, and foodies.

Additionally, if you live near a Pinkbox Doughnuts, the brand is celebrating National Doughnut Day by giving away commemorative t-shirts today.

The fast-growing doughnut shop will deck out all locations in Southern Nevada, and its shop in St. George, Utah with festive decorations. Customers who buy a dozen doughnuts at any location on June 7 will receive a free limited edition 2024 National Doughnut Day t-shirt (while supplies last). This is a tradition Pinkbox Doughnuts began a few years ago, and it has become extremely popular with its customer base. 

Two lucky customers can also win free doughnuts for a year via Pinkbox Doughnuts’ Instagram contest at @pinkboxdoughnuts, which will run through Saturday, June 8.
