It's been a long wait for South Hill diners, but Epic Donuts has finally opened. South Hill is a community short on doughnut options aside from grocery store bakeries. This bakery will cater to kids – a pretty safe bet in a suburban community like South Hill – with its Epic Eddie mascot and specials aimed at schools and youth sports teams.
The walk-in bakery doesn't have any seating, but will have a display case selling doughnuts. The bakery will offer curbside pick-up. Drip coffee and cocoa will be sold, but not espresso.
Opening the doughnut bakery are longtime restaurant manager Tom Dobrinski and wife Erin, a former teacher who now sells real estate. They’ve lived in South Hill for 14 years. Tom Dobrinski previously worked for chains like B.J.’s Brewhouse and Billy McHale’s. Earlier in his career, he managed the Harmon in Tacoma.
Their doughnut flavors range from the usual suspects to unusual flavors like peanut butter and jelly, caramel apple, banana split and strawberry shortcake.
