New Bedford Grandma’s Donuts Is Finally Ready to Open Its Doors
Ladies and gentlemen, it's been a long time coming, but the time has arrived to announce that Grandma's Donuts in New Bedford is officially open.
Through trial and tribulation, the Lemieux family was able to get the business up and off the ground with a grand opening on December 19. This is great news for fans of Grandma's Donuts, formally known as Ma's Donut and Coffee Shop.
Earlier this morning, I received a "Happy Birthday" text from my good friends down at Grandma's and asked if I had enough time before Michael and Maddie started to swing by the store for a special surprise.
How could I say no to that? Thankfully, I only live eight minutes up the road from 1972 Acushnet Avenue, so I stopped by briefly for the sweetest surprise: a fresh, warm chocolate glazed donut that was still warm and oh-so-gooey. While I was there, I chatted with Scott and Hannah Lemieux, who were busy as work preparing the store and baking some of those delicious honey-dipped donuts.
Normally, Grandma's Donuts would be sold on Sundays, but with Christmas on Saturday, it's a lot for the Lemieuxs to prepare for. After all, who wants to do anything after a long Christmas Day anyways? I, for one, don't blame them. Therefore, they plan on opening up the doors to the public right after the holidays on Sundays. Doors will be open from 6 a.m. until they sell out, so plan on getting there early (trust me on this one).
The beverage cooler is stocked and the shelves and display are filled with donuts, sweets and savory treats, so get ready to start setting your weekend alarm early if you want to get your hands on Grandma's Donuts.
Once they're gone, they're gone, so plan accordingly and dress warm. These lines tend to wrap around the building.
