Yonutz SMASH Donuts stuffed with ice cream, smashed and hot-pressed with toppings among Yonutz’s signature treats
Yonutz, an out-of-this-world, over-the-top dessert experience and two-time winner of “Dessert Wars,” the largest dessert festival in America, is coming to Las Vegas. The fantastical donut and ice cream shop, famous for its SMASH donuts and donut-topped milkshakes, has announced today, National Donut Day, that it will open at 5765 Centennial Center Blvd., Suite 180 later next month.
“Yonutz, and Las Vegas, are both bigger than life,” said Jordan Leach, Yonutz area developer and master franchisee. “We are thrilled to bring this incredible, over-the-top dessert destination to Las Vegas in Centennial Hills and introduce Yonutz’s fantastical creations to donut and ice cream lovers throughout the valley.”
Founder and CEO of Yonutz, Tony Bahu, has grand expansion plans for the company which caught the attention of Shark Tank entrepreneur and original shark, Kevin Harrington. Now a partner in Yonutz, Harrington saw the company’s tremendous exposure potential to capture fans throughout the United States and calls Yonutz “the next big thing.”
The 1,500-square-foot donut and ice cream shop, located just off US-95 and Ann Road, will be the first of several planned Yonutz locations throughout Las Vegas, with a Southern Utah location coming soon. The whimsical space, designed with colorful walls and imaginative eye-catching attractions, will offer indoor seating as well as fun photo opps. Award-winning menu items will include Yonutz’s Nutella Crunch SMASH Donut, a fluffy donut stuffed with cookie dough ice cream, smashed and hot-pressed, topped with Oreos, cereal crunch and Nutella drizzle; Unicorn SMASH Donut, stuffed with candy ice cream, smashed and hot-pressed, topped with cotton candy bites and sparkly unicorn glitter; and Birthday Cake SMASH Milkshake, prepared with birthday cake ice cream, ‘birthday Oreos’ and topped with a mini donut.
In addition to Yonutz SMASH Donuts and Milkshakes, Yonutz will also serve imaginative ice cream flavors including Yo Captain My Captain, Yo-Yo-Oreo and Yo-Nicorn; a variety of mini and large donuts topped with everything from icing, sprinkles, cereal and more; donut decorating kits, a secret menu available for VIPS and more.
