A local doughnut shop and bakery that first opened in 1962 is expanding in Cedar Rapids!

The Gazette reports that Donutland will be partnering with Lu's Deli and heading into Newbo! Lu's Deli is located at 1010 Third St. SE and serves sandwiches, soups, salads, and now doughnuts! Jeff and Stacy Collins are the new owners who took over the Donutland business in September and announced that this new partnership will be called 'Donutland With Lu's Deli'.

The original Donutland off of Center Point Rd. has been continuously operating since 1971 and Jeff Collins told the Gazette that they get "frequent requests from customers to open more locations." Well their wishes have been granted! The baked goods for the new location will be prepared at the Center Point store and delivered to NewBo. It will be nice to see this business expand, especially since Donutland once had up to six locations in the Cedar Rapids area, according to the report.

The new partnership of Lu's Deli with doughnuts and other baked goods from Donutland is set to begin on February 1, so mark your calendars. If this business continues to grow, then we could see even more locations pop up! Mmmm doughnuts.
