A delicious new doughnut shop is opening soon in Flowood, and a familiar face is behind it!
Former Mississippi State Bulldog and current Oakland Raider Gabe Jackson is bringing the sweet treats to Flowood! Jackson, along with his wife Eryn Jackson, are opening The Dapper Doughnut in January 2020 at the Lakeland Commons, and we can’t wait to try these flavors!
The Dapper Doughnut serves up hot mini doughnuts with unique flavors like bananas foster, s’mores, birthday cake and blueberry lemon. Plus, get this: They make the doughnuts hot and fresh right in front of you! And their doughnuts are made cake style, which means they’re light, moist and slightly crunchy.
If you still need convincing, the Flowood location will be the first doughnut shop to have a “Build Your Own Doughnut” option. While they haven’t laid out what that entails, we’re drooling at the opportunities.
Gabe is a Liberty, Mississippi, native and he’s been eyeing the opportunity to come home and serve up smiles.
“Mississippi is home, and we have always wanted to return home and possibly start a business of our own one day,” he said. “Fortunately, The Dapper Doughnut has given us the opportunity to finally make that happen.”
To celebrate the opening, the Dapper Doughnut will give away free samples at Christmas in the Park at Winter’s Circle Park on December 7 from 2 to 8 p.m. There, you can find their booth and score a free holiday-themed Dapper bag of three hot mini doughnuts.
