Doughnut Time rises again, set to open eight new stores in two months

The recently-revived brand is under new management.

Doughnut Time, which announced its liquidation earlier this year and was forced to shut down its stores around the country, has announced that it will be coming back “bigger and better than ever”, this time under new ownership and management.

“Your favourite sweet treats will be returning to Aussie shelves once again. We’re talking your original favourites, plus vegan, gluten free, high protein and keto options!” the popular doughnut chain announced on its Facebook page.

Doughnut Time is also planning on opening eight new stores in the next two months, in locations like The Myer Center and South Bank in Brisbane, Degraves Street and Fitzroy in Melbourne, plus Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast.

The brand also issued the following statement in response to questions from its Facebook followers regarding the unpaid wages of past employees at the time of the liquidation:

“As the new owners, we think what happened to past employees is unacceptable. We encourage any previous workers who have not yet done so to reclaim unpaid wages by contacting the Department of Jobs and Small Business. We believe many Australians missed Doughnut Time and when we saw it was up for sale, we jumped at the opportunity to bring it back.”
