Expanding doughnut firm set to open Lincoln store

Doughnotts, the Nottingham-based doughnut retailer, is set to expand into Lincoln.

The new venue will be the firm’s fourth, with similar outlets already open in Nottingham, Leicester and Derby.

Doughnotts will take a 1,600 sq ft store within the recently-redeveloped Cornhill Quarter.

Lincolnshire Co-op, owners of the scheme, has spent £70m on the redevelopment.

The shop will be located on the Cornhill, as part of phase two of the redevelopment, delivering 23,000 sq ft of retail space.

Wade Smith and Megan Scaddan, founders of Doughnotts said: “Lincoln is an incredible City with a massive history. We are itching to open and add something new to Lincoln and be the first Doughnut company here.”

Darran Severn of FHP Property Consultants, said: “This is the fourth store we have acquired for Doughnotts. Lincoln has been a priority target and I’m pleased to have secured this site. Location is key, and The Cornhill Quarter has many excellent brands.”

Lincolnshire Co-op was represented by Banks Long & Co and KLM Retail.

Tim Bradford, managing director at Banks Long & Co said: “The Cornhill Quarter continues to secure an array of quality brands in line with our vision for a truly mixed use scheme. We are having some good discussions with other quality retail and leisure brands and look forward to sharing more news on these as we move forward with the scheme.”
