Greenbelt’s newest online donut shop will deliver right to your door.
Galaxy Donuts is not open during normal hours. Instead, owners Stephanie Rizk and Tiki Ayiku make small batches of donuts that can be picked up at 555 Crescent Road (a designated public location) and delivered on select Saturday mornings.
Galaxy Donuts has a set menu of around 15 different donuts and introduces a new flavor every few months, with the most popular flavors being the Lemon Solar Flare and, for kids, the Big Bang, which is covered in rainbow nuggets. -sky.
Rizk and Akiyu, both home bakers who have worked in the restaurant business in the past, typically make between 120 and 300 donuts for each day of pickup and delivery. Friends and family who help with deliveries and washing up are paid in donuts.
The bakery opened on April 20, but Rizk and Ayiku still have daytime jobs. Rizk told the Hyattsville Wire that the two are happy with the business as it is, but they’re not ruling out anything.
âWe don’t currently have any plans to open a storefront, but if an incredible opportunity presents itself we will have to consider it,â she said.
Galaxy Donuts are expected to be picked up and delivered on November 6 and 20, but they’re also accepting special orders for Halloween. You can order online here or follow them on Instagram for updates.
Delivery is available to addresses in Greenbelt, College Park, Lanham, Berwyn Heights, Riverdale, Riverdale Park, University Park and Hyattsville.
