Coming Soon: The Donut Experiment (Greenville, SC)


Ooo…a ‘custom donut shop’? In Greenville? Aw yeah.

Check out this awesomeness:

The Doughnut Experiment presents its deliciously fried treats in a little bit of a different way. The shop is set up to allow guests to create their own flavors. You start with a base of a freshly made, fried to order cake doughnut, choose your frosting and then choose a topping.

The Greenville shop will follow the same format, allowing customers to come in and create their own favorites. The store will feature five different icings: vanilla, glazed, maple, chocolate and caramel and a bountiful list of toppings from sea salt and Oreos to various candy bar bits, nuts and even Fruity Pebbles.

They will be open in September:

The Donut Experiment will open on Augusta Road around Labor Day, according to local owner, Terri Klaeser. The unique shop will not only be the first location in South Carolina, but will be the first franchise location for the Anna Maria, Florida-based company.

The Donut Experiment will be located at 2123 Augusta Rd., Greenville

Coming Soon: Harris Teeter (Greenville, SC)


So Harris Teeter is coming back to the Upstate! That’s fantastic news for everyone. Their new location will be at the redesigned Lewis Plaza off Augusta Road. Tentative open date will be sometime in 2016. Reason why it’s so far off is that they are totally redoing Lewis Plaza. So there is a lot of construction that will need to happen to prepare for their anchor client.

It sounds like a fancy grocery store to boot! 2 story, outdoor seating, etc. Great news for those off Augusta Road and near Downtown area.
